Fish n' Chips. Surf n' Turf. Not what you might think of when you're in the mood for sushi. But if you're open-minded and love to try something new - head over to SEI in Chinatown for sushi and drinks.
SEI is great for a good meal out with friends, especially if they are willing to share. Other than their spicy tuna roll and the lobster tempura roll, nothing else is traditional on their menu.
In addition to the sushi, they have small plates that are spectacular, too. From Kobe beef hotdogs, Korean tacos and pork buns, it melds the traditional with unique twists.
If you want to go, call a week ahead and make a reservation.
