Japaneiro’s Blends South America With Japan

Featured, Japan, South America, Sushi — By on September 3, 2011 2:36 pm

Here are some pictures of my latest visit to Japaneiro’s with Fox 26 News. They’ve added several new menu items since my last visit to the restaurant, and I’m happy to report they are all very good. I’m still torn as to which is my favorite, since they are so different from each other. Here’s some of what you might see on my vlog for Fox 26 News.

Appetizers:

  • Tostons – green fried plantain with roasted bell pepper sauce
  • Plantain chips
  • Tajadas – sweet (ripe) plantain served with Nata cream and Certified Angus tostadas.

Cold:

  • Yuzu Hamachi – yellowtail sashimi in a Japanese citrus sauce
  • Beef Tataki – super tender and juicy beef tenderloin seared rare and sliced thin in a ponzu sauce with pico de gallo and sesame seeds

Hot & Cold:

  • Caribbean Volcano – awesome warmed bed of sweet plantains covered with fresh spicy tuna, topped with avocado, miso reduction, coconut milk and sesame seeds
  • Avocado cream soup – you must try it, it’s creamy heaven!

Sushi:

  • Nirvana – Japaneiro’s most famous sushi sampler, all kinds of sushi
  • Shaggy Dog roll – Japaneiro’s #1 selling roll, with shrimp and cream cheese wrapped in soy paper topped with shredded Kani, Japanese mayo and Sriracha sauce.

Drinks:

  • Blueberry vodka mojito
  • Skinny Margarita
  • Lotus martini

Japaneiro’s has a great variety of food and drinks, not only for grown ups but also for kids who have a lot of non-Sushi items to choose from. I’ve taken my mother-in-law, who doesn’t eat sushi, and she loves the place. She even got hooked on the Shaggy Dog roll!
