Profile

This venue is closed.

Mexican-meets-Japanese doesn’t sound like a very good idea, but this clean and cleverly laid-out restaurant, with its kitschy sushi conveyor belt bearing Fiestaware-hued plates, is almost worth a try. An appealing checkerboard of booths are packed into a small space, making it good for a tete-a-tete and meal, if only the food were better. On close inspection, it’s apparent that the fish in the series of elaborate rolls that scoot by for the grabbing could be a lot fresher, and combinations like cucumber with banana, tomato, asparagus, and avocado just sound questionable, as do the many varieties involving cream cheese. The sweet potato in a veggie roll was dried out, and better renditions of the spicy tuna roll can be found at many grocery stores. The “kitchen menu” is full of forced fusion creations, like Mexican gyoza, red-hued dumplings filled with an oily shrimp filling with a barely discernible South-of-the-Border flavor profile. Japanese tacos are a sad affair or rolled tortillas filled with black beans, guacamole, and your choice of filling, including soft-shell crab or rib-eye. Only miso soup tasted at all traditional—it was salty but satisfying, and the jalapenos floating in it (the Mexican touch) somehow made sense, unlike most of the rest of the food here.

Note

Reservations only accepted for parties of six or more.
