It’s almost that time of year again. Along with shamrocks and leprechauns aplenty, you’ll find people decked in green (who will probably pinch you for wearing any other color of the rainbow). These same people will try speaking to you in a fake Gaelic accent, shouting, “Top o’ the mornin’ to ya!” and “Kiss me, I’m Irish,” even if they don’t have an Irish bone in their body. That’s right – St. Patrick’s Day is just about here.
Whether you typically love donning the green top hat and getting into the spirit of St. Paddy’s Day or you feel no desire to celebrate the day whatsoever, you’ve gotta eat. Sure, you can dig into some corned beef and cabbage like everyone else, but why not do something a little different this year? Break away from tradition and try some delicious food and drink that are worth more than a pot of gold at BaiKu:
Wakame Salad – Bored of everyday salads? Step out of the box and enjoy our simple yet flavorful wakame salad. Made with marinated seaweed, Japanese vegetables, and sesame, this refreshing and nutritious salad will whisk you away to a distant shoreline.
Vegetable Futomaki – Make sure you come hungry to revel in this larger-than-life veggie roll. Chockfull of cucumber, avocado, asparagus, crunchy yamagobo, oshinko, kampyo, tender enoki mushrooms, and delicate kaiware sprouts, our vegetable futomaki is the perfect combination of wholesome and savory.
Rainbow Rolls – They say at the end of a rainbow awaits a pot of gold. Whoever said that is wrong – what waits for you is something even better: an amazing dish of our amazing rainbow rolls. Featuring a colorful selection of crab, cucumber and avocado topped with tuna, salmon, Hamachi, shrimp, and avocado, these rolls are as good as gold (and a heck of a lot tastier).
Clover Rolls – Four leaf clovers are so passe. Mix it up with 6 pieces of this specialty roll, which spotlights the ever-refreshing yellowtail, avocado, cilantro, wasabi tobiko, and jalapeno wrapped in soy paper. Personally, we think our clover rolls will bring you good luck for the rest of the day.
Green Dragon Rolls – Think green (and we mean the Emerald Isle in particular) and try our green dragon specialty roll! Cucumber, avocado, tender enoki mushrooms, and refreshing yamagobo take the spotlight within this decadent roll, which is topped with avocado, toasted garlic soy, chive oil, scallions, jalapenos, and kaiware sprouts.
Irish Coffee and the Nutty Irishman – It might sound like the name of an Irish fantasy novel about an eccentric Irishman who gains superpowers from spiked Irish coffee, but in reality, they’re two different drinks that we have at BaiKu. Savor the ultimate Irish Coffee, which features Jameson Irish Whiskey and sugar topped with whipped cream. Or try our Nutty Irishman, which is a delicious blend of Bailey’s and Frangelico topped with coffee, whipped cream, and grated nutmeg. Whichever you choose, you just can’t go wrong.
Green Tea Ice Cream – Don’t forget to save room for dessert! End the night with this light and refreshing sweet treat, which is topped with black sesame mochi and candied ginger. Trust us – you really haven’t lived until you’ve tried our green tea ice cream.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, yes, Japan really does celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. This Gaelic holiday falls on a Saturday this year, so be sure to call us at (314) 896-2500 to make reservations today!BaiKu 0
