 The menu at SUSHISAMBA dromo offers inventive fare that unites precise Japanese technique, bold Brazilian flavors and exquisite Peruvian culinary traditions on one plate. SUSHISAMBA dromo’s signature Sashimi Seviches are excellent examples of this cultural union. 

 A traditional dish of Peru, seviche is created when fish enzymatically cooks by sitting in an acid, such as lemon or lime juice.  After about twenty minutes, the acid “cooks” the fish, giving the same effect that heat has on proteins.  At SUSHISAMBA dromo, sashimi seviche is a twist on the concept of traditional seviche.  However, instead of letting the fish marinate for hours, it marinates for mere minutes — maintaining the integrity of Japanese sashimi while being prepared with Peruvian flavor and technique.  Examples of sashimi seviche at SUSHISAMBA dromo include Tuna Sashimi Seviche with orange, jalapeño, yuzu and white soy, while the Yellowtail Sashimi Seviche brings ginger, garlic and soy.
