Kicking off February with a Yelp Elite event, we took folks to the newly opened Kona Grill at Northstar Mall to get their sushi on! From the friendly staff to the delicious rolls, everything was spot on!
Yelpers were warmly greeted by some of the best staff around on Kona Grill’s spacious patio with ruby Red Sake Sangria. Soon after, Joaquin and Andre, the General Managers explained the menu like it was written on the back of their hand. Tray after tray, sushi rolls were brought out by the staff for the guests to try. The Voodoo Roll, Bama Roll, Picasso Roll, and Sashimi were all hits at othe event. Elites were then brought out a second beverage – The Strawberry Basil Lemonade that had a herbal kick to it! These were accompanied by three different tapas – The juicy Macadamia Nut Chicken perfectly paired with the sweetness of a papaya – pineapple marmalade, the tender Pork Tenderloin, and finally the Miso-Sake Sea Bass. The huge variety and offerings were perfectly paired and filled the guests eliminating any chance of FOMO; however, everyone managed to make room for dessert when they were surprised with an assortment of samplings. Dessert included their incredibly moist perfect house-made Carrot Cake with a creamy icing, a perfectly portioned creme brulee, and a thick, rich fudge brownie to top it all off!
