Details
Sansei’s sushi chefs are known for their highly imaginative creations, like their signature Panko Crusted Ahi Roll and the famous Kapalua Butterfly Roll, a colorful delight of salmon, crab, shiromi, and fresh vegetables. The multi-award winning Asian Shrimp Cake with Ginger-Lime Butter and Cilantro Pesto is a delicate shrimp cake encased in crispy Chinese noodles. The Japanese word “sansei” refers to “third generation” and founder D.K. Kodama felt it was a fitting name for a restaurant inspired by Japanese tradition also serving contemporary interpretations of sushi and Asian cuisine. It is also a reference to D.K. Kodama’s background as a third generation Japanese American.
