Try Revamped Asian Tapas at Tsukiji Bistro

When Tsukiji Bistro opened in Melrose six weeks ago, it didn't just bring Japanese or Chinese food to the city. It brought both — plus touches of Korean, Thai, and Hawaiian cuisines. The chef's signature fusion fare pulls flavors from all across the globe to create completely new dishes.

If you want to try a little bit of everything, order a few small plates to share. Try the fried chicken with an Asian twist, the steamed dumplings, or the panko-encrusted oysters. Add some sushi, such as the yellowtail carpaccio, a four-piece flight of nigiri, and a spicy shrimp tempura dragon roll. If you'd rather enjoy a single cooked entree, opt for a hot pot filled with wagyu beef or littleneck clams, or try a dish like the lo mein or the basil beef at Tsukiji Bistro.
