Quick bites like Sushi Pizza, Salmon Carpaccio, Karaage Cones filled with crispy Japanese fried chicken, a variety of poke bowls, and Sushi Tacos are perfect for sharing amongst friends. Order a mini bowl of authentic ramen all to yourself, like Original Tonkotsu, Yuzu Chicken, or the vegetarian-friendly Veggie Ramen, also available spicy.
