In honor of International Sushi Day on Saturday, June 18, Chef Kazu of O-Ku has prepared a special roll for this Saturday’s dinner service. The special, the O-Ku King Roll, will consist of squid ink rice, snow crab, Ora king salmon, jalapeno masago and micro greens. Stop in to celebrate the holiday and our recent recognition as one of “The 18 Best Japanese Restaurants in America” by New York Post!
O-Ku brought upscale Asian cuisine to the Lowcountry when it opened its doors on downtown’s bustling Upper King Street in March 2010. Celebrating authentic Asian cuisine with a contemporary twist, executive chef Kazu Murakami focuses on unique ingredients and sophisticated presentation. From petite plates to sushi specialties, O-Ku showcases the freshest fish from the world’s finest markets as well as locally sourced ingredients. O-Ku’s interior is sleek and modern, yet offers a reminder of Charleston’s charm and history with its exposed brick and high ceilings. A fine selection of sake and hand-made cocktails complement the restaurant’s eclectic menu and sleek ambiance, making O-Ku one of Charleston’s top dining destinations. www.o-kusushi.com/
