RA Sushi

5829 SW 73rd St. South Miami, FL 33143 | Coral Gables/South Miami | 305-341-0092

Location Description:

Sitting like a South Beach-y black sheep in laid-back and pub-heavy South Miami, RA Sushi is less about raw fish and more about tempura, cooked seafood, kiwi, and jalapeños. Take for instance the Crazy Monkey roll: smoked salmon, cream cheese, and mango topped with avocado, cashew nuts, and red tempura bits. To a sashimi connoisseur, who enjoys the simplicity of tender, raw salmon with a hint of wasabi and soy sauce, this roll is merely a bastardized version of the already Americanized Philly roll. But to a novice, it's delicious and imaginative - training-wheels sushi, if you will. And the menu is pumped full of signature assortments such as the Viva Las Vegas roll (tempura kani kama topped with spicy tuna, crab mix, sliced lotus root, and eel sauce) and the Crunchy Calamari roll. Sure, maki rolls, hand rolls, and a variety of sashimi are also available, but so are spring rolls stuffed with lobster, as well as fried bananas drizzled with Kahlúa. Drinks are tasty too. Try the Tsunami Punch: Served in a fish-bowl-size glass, it's enough for two and serves up a silent but deadly buzz that sneaks up on you like a ninja.
