Dallas’ Best Sushi: Shinsei

What’s the fastest way to get to Japan from Dallas? This is how I felt when I walked through the door of Shinsei Restaurant for a media lunch. The fish is flown in fresh. Then, sushi chef Shuji “Elvis” Sugawara goes to work on it, from head to tail. Maybe it’s a big eye tuna, so shimmeringly fresh it looks as though it was just pulled into the boat. Maybe it’s albacore tuna or unagi. Or maybe yellowtail, shrimp or sea urchin. The first thing that came to mind when I order sashimi is the Hawaiian sashimi. Shinsei’s refreshing Hawaiian Sashimi is made with hiramasa, maui onion and hibiscus vinegar. The spicy tuna roll is a classic here. Add some wasabi and clear your sinuses. 😉 Looking for something a little more fanciful?
Consider one of Shinsei’s Regulars “off the menu” favorites, such as Ashby Roll, with spicy tuna roll topped with baked jumbo lump crab in habanero mayo, or the lovely Katina Crispy Rice, with spicy tuna on crispy rice topped with siracha and jalapeños. Shinsei means “rebirth” in Japanese. This is where you will find most divine sushi in Dallas.
