From layered maki rolls and crisp sashimi, sushi joins a menu of high quality, delicious food at the Plaza Bo Ling’s location.
Sushi is served all the time, except during Saturday and Sunday dim sum service. Prices range from $6-$13 for regular maki, $9-$14 for specialty maki and $4.50 for two nigiri pieces and $7.50 for five. Sushi specials have also been added to the happy hour menu.
This addition comes at the perfect time of year. As temperatures soar, the fresh flavors of sushi sound more and more enticing. It is a light meal that still satisfies. The addition of sushi brings with it a marble, two-tiered counter with chilled display cases to the left of the bar. If the sushi wasn’t calling your name before, this display will convince you to pick up your chopsticks.
The specialty maki rolls include the Snow White—crab, cream cheese, avocado—Fire Cracker—spicy tuna, jalapeño and sriracha—and Rock and Roll—tempura shrimp topped with cooked shrimp and avocado. These three are just a few in an extensive menu of delicious standards and intriguingly-named sushi rolls with rich ingredient descriptions.
Bo Ling’s rice is a real standout in their sushi rolls. It’s vinegar rice—the base of their maki and nigiri rolls—prepared in the old fashioned tradition, in steamers rather than a rice machine. This attention to detail eliminates the gumminess so often present in sushi rice. Sushi Chef Jimmy Tan is a native of Hong Kong. Behind the bar, he holds court before 16 varieties of raw fish plus smoked salmon and smelt roe. Chef Tan also makes a mean miso soup.
Stop in for a couple of sushi rolls and a mango martini for a delectable summertime treat. An order of crab Rangoon and chicken lettuce wraps rounds out a table of shareable hot and cold treats.
