Sushi Den’s Red Dragon Roll

|

At the sushi bar, I usually forgo decadent rolls for simple nigiri sushi and sashimi. But last week, I couldn’t resist trying Sushi Den‘s tempting Red Dragon roll.

The deviation paid off with a creamy, crunchy mix of spicy tuna, avocado, and cucumber on the inside and sushi rice and garlic butter tuna tataki on the outside. “Dragon roll” sauce—a closely guarded secret recipe—gives the dish fire and zip. No soy sauce needed.

Bonus: Across the street, construction continues on Den Deli, the Kizaki brothers’ much-anticipated noodle bar and seafood market. There’s talk the eatery will open in mid-November.
