Staying true to its name and adorned in tropical decor, Hei Tiki is the perfect summer spot to enjoy some sushi and refreshing cocktails.

The menu consists mostly of Japanese staples such as katsu, sushi, and sashimi. If you’re feeling the heat this June, a must-try specialty menu item has to be Hei Tiki’s Osaka bite, which is deep-fried crispy rice topped with black tobiko, wasabi mayo, and spicy tuna. As for their rolls, definitely add the Nagoya roll to your list, complete with spicy tuna, cucumber, spicy mayo, hot sauce, and tempura crunch on top.
