Bacon Week: When Pigs Fry
With a sushi menu featuring nine distinctive rolls with bacon - sauced with exotic concoctions like sweet mandarin and bruleed ginger aioli - it’s safe to say this Normal Heights haunt has the inventive sushi game on lock, carving out a niche for itself among sushi and bacon enthusiasts.
The best selling When Pigs Fry roll at Sabuku Sushi combines spicy tuna and braised asparagus wrapped in two thick-cut, honey-cured and hickory-smoked bacon slices; then, it’s lightly coated in tempura and fried until golden, and comes topped with the mandarin and aioli sauces, plus bonito flakes, adding to the smoky nature of this crunchy, flavor-loaded treat.
