Food Adventures has a new, original feature called a “Second Helping of…”
Food Adventures already sets itself apart from the rest, because we dine at a place many times before an article materializes on Dayton Most Metro. From time to time, we will revisit some of our favorite Miami Valley eateries, and let you know about new specialty items that are delicious, or standard fare that you “gotta try.” This is not a recycling of an old article, but some new takes on the menu. You can still expect the same killer “food porn” photos, and “must eats.”
You may recall our original article on Kabuki Korean and Japanese Restaurant, in Centerville, if not CLICK HERE. The restaurant continues to ‘pack em in’, and has a loyal following, like no other sushi spot in the Dayton area.
HERE’S THE SKINNY:
— Located at 848 S. Main St. in Centerville, the menu is mostly Japanese, with a touch of Korean specialties as well
— The secret to this restaurant’s success is fresh, delicious food. The kitchen area and sushi bar are immaculate. We believe that a clean environment is especially important when serving raw food. It also shows respect for the art of sushi !
— Pay attention and save with coupon specials through email, mail and facebook!
— Warning, peak hours may become crowded in this cozy, tight dining room.
Kabuki is a perfect place to get out of your comfort zone and experience a true Food Adventure. Try something new and wild. This is the spot to do it ! We have ordered almost everything on the menu and love theses sushi rolls: Boston Roll, Playboy Roll, Mexican Roll, Rock N Roll Roll, and the Spider Roll, along with some other favorites:
— SHRIMP TEMPURA ROLL: A must eat for the sushi beginner. The roll is stuffed with cooked, fried shrimp. What’s not to love?
— DEL SOT BIBIMBOB: From the Korean menu, this is a true Food Adventure pick. The dish is served in a hot stone bowl. It includes mixed vegetables& beef served over steamed rice , all topped with a fried egg. It is served with a side of hot & spicy sauce. Big Ragu liked it so much, he actually danced and sang a new Hanson song “MMM Bibimbob.”
— RAW SALMON (SAKE): This is a slice of uncooked salmon on top of rice. Yes it is raw, but drip some soy and wasabi on it, and it melts in your mouth. We don’t know the secret, but Kabuki has some of the tastiest salmon in town. We just keep coming back for more.
— RAW TUNA (MAGURO): A raw piece of tuna, over a small ball of rice. So hearty, it is almost like a piece of steak. So full of protein, one bite will make you feel nourished and alive. For $2.75 per piece, it is an exotic delicacy.
— ATLANTIC ROLL: A seafood lovers dream, with specialties from the ocean. This roll is filled with spicy tuna, shrimp tempura, & avocado. On top of the roll is snapper and wasabi sauce. Grab a pair of chopsticks and work some magic.
Honorable Mention: Not in the mood for experimenting? Then try the Chicken Teryaki or Katsu Chicken Meal, guaranteed to please the “meat and potato” types who love BBQ Chicken.
With healthy eating a concern to so many people, we will share a favorite menu item that will keep you bathing suit ready .. Wear it to the restaurant, we don’t care.
— TUNA TATAKI: This ‘must eat’ is big on taste, light on calories. It is a plate of seared, ahi tuna, splashed with a citrus vinegar sauce. A cross between cooked and raw, this dish is a simple ‘back to the basics’ taste of sushi. The fresh tuna is healthy and pleasing to the tastebuds, which makes it a win-win combination.
