Take A Seat at Sabuku’s Interactive Sushi Bar , by Michelle Dederko, 8/31/2012

We’ve given you the low-down on Sabuku Sushi’s unexpected rolls and creative takes on tradition. Beyond the flavorful food, we’re discovering even more ways that Sabuku defies the norm.

A Heated Triple Threat Sushi Challenge , by Brandon Hernandez Posted on August 8th, 2012

It’d been a long time since I saw that cheesy photo of me donning a sombrero and poncho, sporting a set of plumped purple lips. I don’t consider myself particularly photogenic and generally avoid pics of my mug. Despite that, I took a quick glance of my victory Polaroid from True North Tavern’s TNT Taco Challenge before heading out the door for my latest firefight, if for no other reason than to remind myself of my taste buds’ fortitude.

This time around, there would be no silly garb, no needling emcee taunting me over a PA playing to a crowd of half-enthused, half-mortified onlookers. Nope. This time it would be just me, myself, and I, seated in a corner and daring to take on a trio of sushi rolls comprising Sabuku Sushi’s (3027 Adams Avenue) Suicide Special.

First off, just know the good people of Sabuku don’t want you to die. They think you have a lot to live for. Butttt, in case you do perish from their Suicide Special — three super-spicy, mouth-numbing, Chrissy-Russo-hot rolls — they will ask that you pay before eating, and the menu even includes a warning that they aren’t responsible for divvying up your Matt Christopher books in case you do, you know, kick the dying bucket.

Sabuku’s sakes featured on Citybeat

Postedon Jun 21, 2012 in News and Reviews

Learning to enjoy sake by Kelly Davis, May 24th, 2012

To make up for running out of one of the sakes in the three-sake flight I ordered recently at Sabuku, a newish sushi spot in Normal Heights, the server brought me a generous pour of Yoshinagawa’s “Winter Warrior.”

“Now, that’s good,” my husband said, putting the glass at an equal distance between us.

Winter Warrior was initially intended for limited release, but its popularity at Sabuku (3027 Adams Ave.) is at least partly responsible for Yoshinagawa’s decision to make it available year-round. It’s Sabuku owner Bob Pasela’s favorite, too.
