A first-time winner in the Best Japanese Cuisine category, Café Sushi boasts an impressive sushi bar and complete Asian kitchen. Having just won Best Entrée in the Taste of Troy, the tonkatsu curry rice is their most popular dish. It features panko-breaded pork fillet atop Japanese curry. Of their sushi rolls, the Maui roll is a must-try — panko-fried calamari, pineapple and asparagus topped with albacore tuna, seared spicy sauce, banana peppers and eel sauce. Almost everyone in the Café Sushi kitchen is family, lending the place an intimate, friendly atmosphere, something akin to having dinner at a relative's.
