In the mood for something from Asia, but can't quite make a decision? Then Blue Sake in Dunedin should be your first stop, with their massive menu of Far East favorites, but in no way does the variety of options inhibit the quality. With fresh and delicious sushi as the lead-in, there are plenty of other options such as meat, seafood, and noodles to give you the full flavor of the continent all in one location. Whether you're looking for Japanese, Chinese, Thai, or something that's a fusion of all, there's no place with a longer or more complete menu of sumptuous entrees anywhere on the West Coast of Florida.
The sushi rolls might be the most optically appealing dishes, created by experienced chefs trained in the art with years of experience. The Caterpillar Roll stands out for its beauty, looking like an enlarged version of the pest with a head made of fiery wasabi. Created with eel, cream cheese, cucumber, avocado, and tobigo, it contrasts between fresh and fiery when blended nose-to-tail.
The Dancing Eel Roll may look like a California, though it's topped with both eel and "eel sauce." There is no eel in the sauce, but it just blends so perfectly with the eel itself it's synonymous, and it's a wonderful accent to the crab, avocado, and cucumber. The enthralling eye appeal is just a lovely bonus.
Blue Sake even supports the home team, with their Bucs Roll of yellowtail, crab, scallion, and cucumber topped with white tuna, jalapeno, wasabi mayo, and tobigo (flying fish roe)
Can't decide between so many choices? The Sushi Boat of nine pieces combined with a California roll gives you the best of both worlds.
Not everyone enjoys the raw, and the Japanese Tonkatsu fills in with a breaded, deep-fried pork cutlet served with shredded lettuce, carrot, lemon wedge, and Tonkatsu sauce. It balances beautifully and gives bit of kick and balance to the pork that still allows for plenty of flavor and crunch.
For something else fresh but not fried, and for those seeking something a bit less adventurous of palate, the beef teriyaki offers a beef steak topped with Japanese Teriyaki sauce and served with broccoli, carrot and zucchini.
With so many choices to try, Blue Sake has become a go-to for so many people looking for Japanese and Chinese cuisine in Dunedin, Largo, and the rest of Pinellas County. Located at 1425 Main St. in Dunedin, it serves both locals and tourists with plenty to write home about, and delivery is also available!
