Fodor's Expert Review SushiSamba Coral Gables
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
A flavor explosion of East-meets-South, SushiSamba beautifully mingles Japanese, Peruvian, and Brazilian cuisines to create an off-the-grid small-plates experience in the heart of Miracle Mile. The sleek 6,500-square-foot restaurant is at once modernist and welcoming. The colorful menu is divided into small hot plates, Samba Rolls, raw dishes, large plates, and skewers from the robata. Don't miss the divine chicharrón de calamar, a deliciously creative incarnation of fried calamari topped with tamarind sauce. Indulge in the crispy taquitos, stuffed with Maine lobster and hearts of palm. Feast on the specialty sushi roll unique to this location, the spicy Samba Coral Gables, which is loaded with steamed lobster, avocado, jalapeno, rice cracker, sweet chili, and key lime mayo. Save room for dessert. The Samba Split—a tower of dulce de leche ice cream, caramelized bananas, coconut flan, coconut mochi, and caramel popcorn—is even better than it sounds!
