It took a while to catch on here, possibly because of a Midwestern aversion to raw fish.</p><p>Now, sushi is everywhere, even in the grocery store. Once a rarity, sushi and Japanese food in general are firmly part of Wichita’s diverse culinary scene.</p> Fri, 25 Jul 2014 11:00:41 +0000 Tanya Tandoc 37984 at http://kmuw.org Wasabi Gets Crazy With Sushi Restaurant Review: Hana Cafe http://kmuw.org/post/restaurant-review-hana-cafe <p><span style="line-height: normal; ">I have been going to </span>Hana<span style="line-height: normal; "> </span>Café<span style="line-height: normal; "> since it was a little Rock Road hole in the wall.</span><span style="line-height: normal; "> </span><span style="line-height: normal; ">It was tiny then, and very simple and Japanese-looking, complete with a waving kitty and blue and white curtains.</span><span style="line-height: normal; "> </span><span style="line-height: normal; ">The menu was small but excellent, serving sushi, pork </span>tonkatsu<span style="line-height: normal; ">, < Fri, 16 Nov 2012 11:00:00 +0000 Tanya Tandoc 8565 at http://kmuw.org Restaurant Review: Hana Cafe Restaurant Review: Kanai http://kmuw.org/post/restaurant-review-kanai <p style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">Sushi has been the subject of many a dinner negotiation. I adore sushi and will bargain outrageously with my non-sushi-loving family to get to go eat it. I’ll promise to fold laundry, or dance a little jig, or even listen to Steely Dan to get to eat sushi. They have gamely tried to enjoy it but it’s just too weird for them. Too cold, too many textures, the unforgivable presence of seaweed…not to mention the raw fish part.&nbsp; That just puts it over the edge.</p> Fri, 23 Sep 2011 10:00:00 +0000 Tanya Tandoc 1249 at http://kmuw.org Restaurant Review: Kanai
