Dunken Fish sushi - spicy Eskimo roll


Founded in St. Louis in 2003, Drunken Fish offers a selection of sensational sushi and Japanese cuisine they say will satisfy every appetite. Quincy “Q” McDowney visited the new Drunken Fish Leawood location at 4331 W. 119th Street to try a few rolls in their intimate lounge setting.

McDowney first sampled the Spider Man roll, a makimono featuring whole soft-shelled crab, shrimp, crab stick, Japanese mayo, sprouts and asparagus topped with eel sauce, Sriracha, sprouts and masago. He gave this roll 4 out of 5 um-ums before sampling what he says is Drunken Fish’s signature roll—the spicy Eskimo roll.

Of the makimono filled with crab, cucumber and cream cheese topped with smoked salmon, yuzu sauce, garlic mayo, jalapeno slices and black tobiko, he said, “That’s the best roll in Overland Park.” He awards the spicy Eskimo roll 5 out of 5 um-ums, his highest food rating.

You can find Drunken Fish in the Leawood Town Center Crossing as well as in the Kansas City Power & Light at 14 E. 14th St., Kansas City, MO 64106. The Leawood location is open for lunch Monday-Friday 11:00 2:00 p.m. Summer hours began May 1, you can enjoy dinner from 4:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. Monday-Saturday and the bar to 1:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday, open until 3:00 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
