This well-known sushi franchise got its start in 1976 in Osaka, Japan, before laying down roots in Hawaii. Kozo Sushi locations can be found throughout Oahu — including at Kahala Mall and Pearlridge Shopping Center, and in Keeaumoku and Moiliili.

Credit is due to Kozo’s top-notch sushi makers, who are behind the magic, hand-crafting an array of fresh sushi rolls all made to order. The Dragon Maki, for one, is regarded as one of the most-requested rolls by customers and features eight pieces of shrimp tempura maki paired with fresh lettuce and seasoned with a sweet teriyaki sauce. It’s then topped with fresh ahi, masago, green onions and sesame seeds, drizzled with an extra bit of teriyaki and spicy sauce to give it an added kick.

Priced at only $6.99, the Dragon Maki is a rock n’ roll sensation for all palates, and offers the perfect combination of sweet and spicy.
