The Portuguese Sushi Chef


A Portuguese chef, Chef Paulo, married to a Hapa-Japanese American woman, learns to become a master sushi chef and opens a new restaurant that artfully combines Portuguese and Japanese cuisine. And he opens the restaurant, called Queee, in Los Angeles' Chinatown district. This is a place where many cultures are converging--an interesting example of urban diversity.

Delicious. But is it Portuguese, Japanese, or both?

Non-Japanese desserts

Mochi ice cream is offered on the dessert menu. But the specialties are these rather non-Japanese delicacies such as meringue with coffee cream and mini-Napoleons, served on Chinese-style soup spoons.
