Sushi Symphony

Aka-Yagara (2)

Chef John Um is jazzing it up with sushi that makes us hear trumpets with this Aka-Yagara (a.k.a. Red-Trumpet fish) from Shizuoka, Japan served with Hazelnut-Yuzu sauce and topped with drizzled Hazlenut Oil, Hazlenut crumbs, sea salt, and micro cilantro.

We’ve all tried classic cheesecake before. But this fried mango cheesecake special kicks it up a notch with caramel sauce, vanilla bean ice cream & graham cracker crumbs!

Sushi + Bar

Crafted by Chef John, we present a caipirinha refined and redefined: Leblon Cachaca, yuzu cordial, St. Germain, splash of sparkling Moscatel, Cave Amadeu, and a couple drops of Grenadine! Then, paired with a sake-mirin-soy marinated salmon topped with Leche de Tigre purée. Now, this is what happens when bar meets sushi at SUSHISAMBA Las Vegas!!!
