Sometimes the best restaurants are those located off the beaten path — the little-known mom-and-pop eateries just waiting to be found. DOMO Sushi in Cary is one such hidden gem located in a somewhat concealed business strip center you may never have noticed. That’s a shame, because DOMO is worth seeking out and visiting time and again.
The owners have
successfully managed to pull off an intimate Japanese bistro vibe that’s
suitable for a lunch or dinner date without the white-linen trappings or high
prices. At lunchtime, DOMO features a variety of sushi rolls like spicy tuna or
salmon, soft shell crab-infused spider or deep-fried bagel served with a fresh
garden salad and soup for under $10.
ambitious roll offerings like Snow White, Maynard and Sweet Dragon feature
shrimp tempura, avocado and eel sauce or spicy mayo. Service at DOMO is
friendly and efficient. What’s more, you never have to worry about your
beverage glass going dry.
consider ordering the satisfying Orange roll, which comprises a California roll topped with salmon,
wasabi mayo, fruity mayo and sesame seeds. All rolls are artfully presented
with precision and flair. The requisite sashimi and nigiri options are
available as well.
Save room for dessert. You can’t go wrong with a fried
banana or fried cheesecake, both of which are served with ice cream.
DOMO also offers daily specials such as 15 percent off sushi rolls at dinner on Monday and Tuesday and drink specials on other days. Check the restaurant's website for details.
