Gather a group together to go out for dinner and one thing is for sure, everyone has their own idea about what they want to eat. This is the main reason why restaurants have a wide variety of menu selections. Take Nakato Japanese Steakhouse, for instance. We specialize in fine sushi made fresh each day in the traditional Japanese style. We know that all of our customers will not have the same tastes in sushi. For instance, people looking for a great sushi bar in Charlotte, NC where we have a location, have a slightly different taste palette than people seeking a sushi bar in Springfield, MO. If you were to visit both of our restaurants in these places, you’d see some familiar favorites on our sushi menu, like the popular California Roll, Philadelphia Roll and Salmon Skin Roll.
You would also find that we offer customers some unique sushi rolls designed to appeal to local taste preferences. In Charlotte, sushi Charlotte lovers chow down on favorites such as the 49’er, which is a California roll topped off with salmon, scallion and aioli. Snow crab is featured in the Alaskan Roll. Patrons that prefer bigger portions go for our Big Futomaki Roll stuffed with crab stick, cucumber, smelt roe, omelet, ginger and sweet squash. Our version of a Caterpillar Roll includes eel, eel sauce and avocado. Some diners go wild over our Bobcat Roll with crab stick, cucumber and boiled shrimp accented with fried crispies and sweet chili sauce.
In Missouri, the Futomaki Roll is made with whitefish powder, shrimp, crab, omelet, cucumber and pickled radish at our sushi restaurant in Springfield. The feel good Hope Roll brings together fried shrimp, crab, cream cheese with a touch of eel sauce. The friendly Cathy Roll is an easy choice with yellowtail tempura, crab, sesame seeds, avocado and tempura crumbs. We blow things up with the Dynamite Roll with mussels, fried shrimp, avocado, fish and hot sauce. We spin you around a bit with the Eel Twister Roll that includes fried shrimp, crab, cream cheese and scallions topped with eel. To make dreams come true there’s our Rainbow Roll featuring select raw fish, shrimp, avocado, scallions and our special hot sauce.
Regardless of which Nakato restaurant location you choose to visit, you can be assured that our menu items are varied enough to please everyone’s individual tastes. Sure, that’s a tall order, because some people are very hard to please. However, we feel that we do a pretty good job of offering our customers some of the best sushi anywhere. While our sushi rolls are very popular with many diners, Nakato has plenty of other sushi items as well. We also offer nigiri style sushi with fresh slices of fish or seafood on top of rice. Nigiri looks beautiful and tastes exquisite.
We also realize that not everyone is interested in sushi. That’s okay, because we also offer our customers delicious grilled teppanyaki meals featuring steak, chicken and seafood. Come on over to Nakato and enjoy a great dinner just the way you like it – fresh and delicious!
