Daruma

Daruma is fast-casual but chef-driven Japanese restaurant. Starters here are colorful and fun, including a dish called crispy rice with spicy tuna. The fried chicken chunks of karaage here were aromatic and soft, the crispiness peaking just shy of crunchiness. The Dobson Roll is a good-looking roll, topped with cilantro, shavings of red onion, and jalapeno. These toppings make the roll itself — which consists of shrimp tempura, cream cheese, albacore, and krab meat — taste bright, like a salad. The cilantro and jalapeno give it a veggie-garden aftertaste, then the fish and cream cheese hit.
