Chef Juan Mejia of Tokyo Japanese Steak house & Sushi Bar
The delectable platter above is filled with some of Chef Juan Mejia's most popular and visually appealing items. Those include peppered tuna sashimi, a Bonzai Roll and a Passion Roll, dappled with shrimp.
Tokyo keeps its recipes pretty close to the best, but its Bonzai Roll is an eclectic combination of fried jalapeno, smoked salmon, cucumber, cream cheese, green onion and kaiware (sprouted daikon radish seeds) that doesn't sound like it would work together - but it does. The Passion Roll is equally complex, with spicy salmon topped with fresh salmon, avocado, green onion, lemon slices and hot sauce.
Mejia has been with Tokyo for 15 years. He started at the Dowlen location and has headed up the kitchen at the I-10 restaurant for the past four years. Check out their blog and Facebook Page so you don't miss upcoming special events.
