Three dozen styles of hot dogs, topped with everything from celery salt to crushed pineapple, are the draw at this cheerful, child-friendly diner, and the chili-and-cheese-topped fries, thick milkshakes and foamy root-beer floats are pretty tasty too. Soups, salads, sandwiches and burgers as well as occasional pierogi or fish-fry dinners round out the menu, not to mention the clientele!
It’s clear that chef and owner Leon Liang takes pride in his sushi, buying and slicing the finest fish he can get his deft hands on. In addition to staples like tuna, salmon, and yellowtail, there are daily specials like sea bream, horse mackerel, and fresh uni. For non-sushi diners, Kasai offers the usual roundup of tempuras, yakitoris, and noodle and rice dishes.
