The Promenade Shops
Asaka continues to thrive despite being unfortunately ensconced between the Winn-Dixie supermarket and the Winn-Dixie liquor store.

Our Food Critic's Rating:
2.5 / 5 Stars
Very much has a neighborhood feel.
I probably eat at Asaka about once a month and continue to see many of the same faces
sushi bar and at tables in the main dining area.
This is one of the city's oldest restaurants, as it first opened in 1993.
That's a tremendous testament to its steadiness and consistency, especially
in consideration of its lousy location.
On either side of Asaka is a Winn-Dixie (the supermarket to the north; a
stand-alone liquor store to the south).
And directly across from Asaka is Chuck E. Cheese, which, as everyone
in this town knows, is a haven for teenaged kids sporting baggy jeans and moronic grins on their
faces with nothing better to do than loiter in a parking lot.
The sushi is extremely reasonably priced at Asaka, with
decent-enough hand-rolls priced at no more than $5.50.
Try the Florida Roll. It has lobster, lettuce, avocado and mayo, and is very good.
Others that I like are the Dragon Roll, a shrimp tempura creation for $8.95, and the
Dynamite Roll, prepared with shrimp, crab, roe and mayo ($6.75).
Quiet, dark dining room suits most patrons nicely. Quick, friendly service always.
