Places 2 Check Out: Reef Sushi and Sake

Posted: Updated:

Just like in Hawaii, the beautiful sunshine streams in the windows. Large pictures of fish and the ocean help you get into the tropical mood. And like most restaurants in Hawaii, Reef Sushi and Sake is right on the water. It's like a trip away right here at home. Heejin Polon is the owner. "What better can you get than Hawaii? So Reef is a bit of Hawaii."

If the restaurant is a bit of Hawaii, the sushi is a bit of heaven. Heejin is Korean. Her husband is an owner of Men Wielding Fire BBQ restaurant. And together they wanted to create a sushi restaurant like no other. "We fused these two flavors together to create something different. We have a bit of Italian flare. We have a lot of American BBQ flare. We have a lot of the traditional Asian flare."

Like the reef roll which comes with panko crusted asparagus, dill cream cheese and smoked salmon on the inside and smoked salmon, avocado, tobiko and basil sauce. "We make all the sauce in house and we make them every single day."

They also make all you can eat pot stickers every single day.  And at Reef, they buy the entire fish.  You can watch them cut it up right in front of you.  And when it ends up on your plate it's almost too beautiful to eat.... Almost!
