When did you first open Ganbei, and how has it developed over the years?
What’s Ganbei’s signature dish?
Definitely the Ganbei Roll and the Ganbei Fried Rice! The Ganbei Roll is a great roll for those who are trying sushi for the first time. It’s our signature roll, containing tempura shrimp, cream cheese, crab, and avocado, topped with torched spicy crab mix and drizzled with our signature sauce.
The Ganbei Fried Rice is for those that love a little spicy kick to their food. It contains marinated teriyaki chicken and beef tossed with our Sriracha-flavored rice. Everyone who has tried it, loves it!
What are the most fundamental differences between Asian and American cuisines?
They are both very different cuisines from opposite sides of the hemisphere. Different Asian countries and regions have different cooking styles. If you are comparing sushi and American cuisine, sushi is something that is lighter and typically oil-free. Sushi allows you to taste the very natural flavors of the ingredients.
What inspires you to work towards your goals? Do you have any role models you aspire to?
Sweet or savory?
Do your ingredients come from local and sustainable sources?
