we had california crunch which is california maki coated with batter and deep fried. we also had crunchy ebi maki which was just ebi maki rolled on crispy japanese bread crumbs. the sizzling tofu was also great (being tofu fanatics) and the mixed kamameshi was also great. and to top it off we had ice cream tempura which was basically fried ice cream. the meal was superb and it was worth it.
crunchy ebi maki
speaking of makis. i had dinner the other night in cascada and thanks to my friend who ordered deep fried maki i did not miss out on one of the best makis ever. unlike the one i had in red kimono this one was served without the usual soy sauce and wasabi but just drizzled with a mango and balsamic sauce if i remembered it right. anyway too bad i forgot to take pictures. the place is quite pricey, not sure if it's considered fine dining. but the food was great so i guess it was worth it.
