Best sushi (Outside Chittenden County)
Asiana House has long been the go-to spot for sushi in Burlington. And since last March, central Vermonters have embraced its sister sushi bar in Montpelier. Owner-chef Gary Ma serves his unique take on fused flavors from the East. Entrées borrow flavors and concepts from Korea, Thailand, China, Japan and even Latin America.
SEVEN DAYS: What is your most eccentric item on the menu?
GARY MA: I would probably have to go with the Tuna Tostada. It’s kinda like a sushi pizza. It’s a tortilla we put in the oven with kimchi sauce. There’s avocado and olives on it, and we top it with tuna, cilantro, lime, aioli and pea sprouts.
