More East-Meets-Mex Fusion at Wafu of Japan

Categories: Local Eats
I raved about the samurai burrito at Wafu of Japan last month; here's another Japexican creation from this small, delicious eatery: jalape├▒os stuffed with spicy tuna.

No need to buy Tums. The chilies that Wafu's chefs use are of the shishito variety, more piquant than fiery, while when has anyone ever broken a sweat over spicy tuna? But this combination, deep-fried, serves as one appetizer that sparks multiple orders because everyone wants to feast on a platter to themselves.

Wafu of Japan at 320 Bristol St., Ste. G, Costa Mesa, (714) 641-7321. And now, a Japanese man in Mexico!
