Drawing culinary inspiration from its tri-cultural coalition, SUSHISAMBA launched a hand roll section that incorporates quinoa, a superfood native to Peru. Offering sushi aficionados an exciting - and healthier - new alternative to rice, the restaurant group continues to transform the scope of 'sushi' with these ingredient-driven temaki, including:
Sweet Chili Tuna scallion 8.00
Shrimp and Shishito cilantro, spicy mayo, red onion 8.00
Yasai avocado, snow pea shoot, sweet potato tempura, sweet soy 7.00
In addition to this exclusive temaki trio, SUSHISAMBA guests may choose from a selection of traditional maki and sushi combinations to be made as quinoa hand rolls, including spicy salmon, eel and avocado and spicy scallop.
As the perfect substitute to starch, quinoa's grain-like texture and appearance satisfy those looking for heartiness in their cuisine, while its composition provides nutrients to diners that far exceed anything a typical starch can offer. In addition to being an excellent source of protein, the list of health benefits that quinoa provides is extensive, not to mention it is gluten-free. Staying true to its innovative culinary approach, SUSHISAMBA has creatively integrated quinoa into hand rolls. They are so tasty that you’ll forget that you’re eating healthy!
