How to Skip Sushi for Fantastic Fusion Fare at SushiSamba

We read the reviews so you don't have to.

Brock Radke shows SushiSamba love for Las Vegas Weeklyraving about the restaurant's combination of Japanese and Peruvian cuisines, also called nikkei. "Familiar nigiri, sashimi and rolls are still available, but take advantage of SushiSamba's more unique creations," Radke suggests, "like the El Topo roll ($15), which adds melted mozzarella and crispy onions on top of salmon, jalapeño and shiso leaf" or "the perfectly charred hamachi kama ($13), the unctuous, fantastic yellowtail collar."

Stick to small plates to "get a better sense of the place," the critic recommends, and don't miss the yellowtail taquitos ($6 each), "as good as you'll find" anywhere. The flavors coming out of the kitchen, raw or cooked, are "vivid" — Radke muses, "Funny that such vibrant food exists in such a quiet location."
