A Sneak Peek at Kabuki's New Arizona Sushi
Phoenix can be a much divided town. There are the Scottsdale types and the West Siders, the conservative natives and the influx of liberals, the sushi eaters and those who would rather chug a live goldfish than eat sashimi. We doubt that the bridge between Arpaio supporters and detractors will be bridged anytime soon, but there's hope for those folks who haven't quite warmed to the idea of uncooked fish.
Kabuki's Poke Tuna with spicy ponzu.
Kabuki, a casual Japanese restaurant with locations in Southern California, Arizona and Las Vegas, is adding seven new menu items specifically tailored for Arizona palates. What does that mean? Think spicy, Mexican-influenced sauces. Salsa. And bubbling cheese, great for first timers wary of more traditional sushi. These new dishes will only be available at the Glendale and Tempe Marketplace locations. Take that, LA!
Lobster Dynamite -- lobster tail with mushrooms baked in a creamy sesame mayo sauce -- is Japanese comfort food.
We were actually the first in the nation to sample the new additions, and we're bringing them straight to you.
