If you ever needed an excuse to head to Sushi Roku, the new 2.0 menu gives you ample reason. Last week, the sushi mecca at the Forum Shops at Caesars launched version 2.0 with a new menu of novel dishes on the lunch, dinner and happy hour menus.
Look for salmon sashimi carpaccio with black truffle shaved tableside, juicy Kobe meatballs in lettuce cups with a mustard soy truffle sauce, Albacore tacos served “Roku Style” and the six-piece Ume and eight-piece Matsu signature-style sushi creations, all playful twists on classic sushi dishes.
The Ume and Matsu signature-style sushi plates offer individual pieces of nigiri-style sushi, crafted with accoutrements that complement each fish’s flavor profile. The Ume version features Japanese sea bream, Scottish salmon, Japanese Yellowtail, seared Albacore, Bluefin tuna and King crab. The Matsu plate includes the Ume selections and the addition of seared Bluefin tuna and Santa Barbara sea urchin.
Executive Sushi Chef Hiroshi Shima has spent four decades perfecting his craft, and oversees the teams of experienced sushi chefs at each Sushi Roku restaurant.
