Top 5 Items on the Gastonia’s Lucky Samurai Sushi Menu
Bringing Japanese food to the South is no easy feat, but Lucky Samurai has perfected the art of American-Japanese fusion dining and Gastonia, NC loves it. Not only do they offer a substantial menu of traditional and special style sushi rolls but they also have an extensive menu outside of sushi rolls. Combination plates, fried rice and even low carb offerings grace the menu that features steak, jumbo shrimp and of course chicken among other filling protein options. The thing that really shines about Lucky Samurai is that the diner always has a choice between proteins and types of rice.
- Low Carb Steak in Hibachi Sauce
Lucky Samurai will replace the rice in the usual combination plates with a protein and sauce of our choice for those of us worried about eating too many starches and carbs. Each Low Carb plate is sauteed with the protein and sauce of our choice along with a traditional combination of vegetables. On the side this platter features sweet carrots in shrimp sauce. Zucchini, carrots, mushrooms and onions are sauteed with Hibachi steak to create this healthy but hearty low carb meal.
- Chicken & Jumbo Shrimp Combination Plate in Yakitori Sauce
As with the low carb plate all of the Lucky Samurai combination plates are made with the diner’s choice of white or brown rice, carrots and shrimp sauce. The chicken and jumbo shrimp are one of the best protein combinations on the menu and with the included addition of the earthy flavor set of mushrooms they’re unavoidable delicious. Topping these fresh protein options with yakitori sauce compliments the surf and turf flavor sets perfectly.
- Tortuga Roll
Even someone who doesn’t like sushi will appreciate the bold and rich flavors of the Tortuga roll from this Japanese restaurant in Gastonia NC. Featuring tuna, cream cheese and cucumber inside then topped with avocado, crunchy flakes and eel sauce and cut into 8 pieces, it will please the whole table. Smooth cream cheese compliments the subtle sweetness of the tuna while the eel sauce gives a bold, richness that ties the whole roll together.
- Teriyaki Salmon with Broccoli
Made from scratch teriyaki sauce is slowly sauteed with salmon over fresh broccoli that delightfully seeps up the delicate flavors. Served over fried rice with a delicious side of sweet carrots in shrimp sauce, this meal isn’t only healthy but so filling for the super reasonable price. This is also a dish that celebrates asian cuisine while also remaining accessible to those that aren’t naturally drawn to Japanese food.
1. Sassy Roll
This name isn’t an exaggeration, the Sassy Roll is truly bringing the sass. The chefs combine shrimp tempura with fried pickles and cream cheese and then top the pieces with crunchy flakes, mango, avocado and a combination of eel sauce & sriracha for a spicy kick. The Sassy Roll so wonderfully combines Southern tradition of fried pickles and Japanese style sushi with a whole lot of flavor thrown in.
