Attention sushi haters: Meet Okinawa Japanese Cuisine

Okinawa Sushi in the Highlands


Sometimes it takes getting out of your comfort zone to promote new experiences and discoveries. So when your spouse asks you to try a new sushi place, you say yes. Even if the previous six or seven attempts to really enjoy sushi have failed. Even if you don't eat fish and can't stand the taste of the seaweed wrap, you think, well, maybe-just maybe-this time it'll be different. Maybe this time you'll actually like the sushi.

After all, the truth about sushi is that it is more about the rice than the fish. And it just so happens that Okinawa Japanese Cuisine offers an entire line-up of vegetarian sushi and tempura on the menu. In addition, the menu also features favorites such as vegetable and tofu teriyaki and Japanese fried rice. Patrons can also indulge in a beer or sake and for dessert a piece of chocolate cake or cappuccino mousse. If that isn't enough, Okinawa Sushi offers amazing happy hour specials which include half-priced sushi rolls and buy one, get one free sake or beer.

If you're going to try out sushi for the first time, happen to hate the taste of fish or even the taste of seaweed, take a chance. Take a moment to stop in and try any of the vegetable rolls offered on the Okinawa Japanese Cuisine menu. The sweet potato rolls are phenomenal and the avocado peanut rolls will leave you asking for seconds and thirds. Wash all of this down with an ice-cold Tiger lager beer, a Japanese import. Relax and languish in the comfortable booths while listening to the ambient music filter through the sound system. Relish in the impeccable service of the wait staff all of whom make the Okinawa experience an unforgettable one.

If you're not a complete sushi convert by the time that you leave Okinawa, then you'll never love sushi. That's just how impressive it is. If you're looking for an adventure outside the comfy bubble of Boulder, head on down to the Highlands and visit Okinawa Japanese Cuisine on Tennyson between 39th and 40th in Denver, Colorado.
