Sushi isn’t just a kind of cuisine, it’s an art form. These five restaurants have each taken the classic spicy tuna roll and creatively made it their very own. So if you’re in the mood to give try an old favorite with a new spin, here are the Haute 5 places to find a spicy tuna roll with some pizazz.
1 RA Sushi
2 Blue Wasabi
Here you want to ask for the Red Hot Chili Pepper. No, your server won't bring you a vegetable or one of the members of the alternative rock band. Instead you'll get a spicy tuna roll topped with sashimi sliced tuna and an extra yummy, extra spicy chili aioli.
3 Tokyo Lobby
4 Pearl Sushi Lounge & Bomber Bar
The Red Zeppelin at Pearl Sushi Lounge & Bomber Bar is delightfully unexpected, to say the least. This roll consists of spicy tuna, shrimp tempura and cucumber rolled and topped with more tuna and a roasted red pepper aioli. Ready for the unexpected part? The whole thing is served over a key lime zest vinaigrette that will knock your designer sandals off.
5 Roka Akor
Roka Akor was named one of the top 10 sushi spots in the U.S. by Bon Appetit magazine, and its only other locations are in London and Hong Kong. What we're trying to say is, the place is special. And while the spicy tuna roll here is more on the "classic" side than at the above locales, we want to add you'll be hard-pressed to find fresher-tasting fish than at Roka Akor.
