SUSHISAMBA is born of the energy and spirit of these three distinct cultures -- a tri-cultural coalition that took root in the early 20th century when thousands of Japanese emigrants traveled to South America's fertile soil to cultivate coffee plantations and find their fortune. In bustling cities like Lima in Peru and São Paulo in Brazil, the integration of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cultures flourished. This cultural phenomenon launched a culinary coup. Hearty moquecas and colorful seviches found a place at the table along side simple miso soup and tender sashimi. SUSHISAMBA serves these traditional dishes, plus more inventive fare, including Sashimi Seviche, Tuna Tataki and our South American Beef Maki Roll. Equal parts imagination and history, the SUSHISAMBA experience is truly unique.
