Sump­tu­ous Nuka

Where Maui - - Dining -

There’s tra­di­tional sushi then there’s sushi that’s in­ven­tive and artis­tic. Cue in Nuka—an iza­kayastyle Ja­panese restau­rant—and all the fla­vors and ex­pec­ta­tions will be met and ex­ceeded. The lol­lipop roll is com­posed of tuna, hamachi, salmon, shrimp, as­para­gus and masago, all condensed neatly into a cu­cum­ber wrap­per, then served (not licked) on tooth­picks. For dessert, the name “black sesame ice cream” is too tempt­ing to pass up as two heap­ing scoops are piled on a plate to share. www.uka­ 780 Haiku Road, 808.575.2939.
