South Florida’s Asian-Inspired Experiences

It’s no secret that South Florida has a TON of Asian dining concepts and it’s seems to be growing rapidly. I’ve provided a few highlights from three different Asian options, serving up culinary classes, tastings and new offerings.

SAKE TASTING AT CASA SENSEI – Offered the last Thursday of the month
Casa Sensei is offering sake tastings on the last Thursday of every month. Attendees will taste a variety of sake selections and let the master sommelier lead you into the world of sake. This fun and educational tasting session will give you an idea of sake fundamentals to solve the mystery behind Junmai and Ginjo, as well as unlock the secret of glassware and accessories. After tasting, enjoy a pleasant and unforgettable Pan-Asian dinner experience at the restaurant, either on the water via Riverfront Gondola Tours or in the dining room. $28pp

TYO BRINGS SUSHI TO THE LINCOLN EATERY

TYO Sushi, a new kosher concept, opened at The Lincoln Eatery in March, serving traditional Japanese and contemporary rolls, Bento boxes and Poke bowls. Helmed by Chef Roger Epres, menu highlights include the Miami-inspired Cuban Roll, a combination of spicy ahi tuna, avocado, tomato, mango salsa and a crispy plantains, as well as the fresh South Beach roll, a healthy choice that combines the fresh flavor of seaweed cucumber and jalapeno sans rice.
