A Hunka Burnin' Love for Sushi
Elvis Tuna Tartare at Shinsei Top Chef contestant Casey Thompson may be gone from Shinsei, but thankfully Elvis is still in the house, rockin' the fresh sushi. Recovered completely from a motorcycle accident, Shuji "Elvis" Sugawara still draws crowds with specialties like his Elvis Tuna Tartare, a sumptuously simple preparation not unlike a fresh fish nacho that disappears as fast as its Mexican counterpart at a football game. Unlike his namesake, Elvis doesn't offer a peanut butter and banana sushi roll, but like him, he still knows how to please the public, thank you very much.
