What do we know about sushi? We know it is delicious AND we know where to find it in Oshkosh!
Located in Downtown Oshkosh, Manila Resto offers flavors of the Phillippines. Filipino cuisine is a melting pot of influences— indigenous, Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, Mexican, and American influences have all shaped the cuisine into what you can enjoy today. The inclusion of Sushi, and the robata grill, are Japanese influences. Sushi refers to sashimi (raw fish), sushi (hand rolls of raw fish and rice), and sushi rolls (sushi in a seaweed wrap). The Robata Grill is an open flame style of grilling that is very traditional in Japan. Past grills used charcoals and ours today is a mix of propane over lava rocks to keep the heat.
Try the new Jeepney Roll at Manila Resto. Why is it called Jeepney Roll? The Filipinos converted old US Military Jeep vehicles that were left behind and used them as buses and transportation. These colorful "stretch" Jeeps were designed to seat 8-10 people, but they are now known for their crowded seating. If you can find a space to sit or hang onto, with money for the driver (which is passed from passenger to passenger up to the front), then you'll find yourself on your way to where you need to go! The Jeepney Roll features smoked salmon, cream cheese, cucumber, avocado, and lettuce, served with diced fresh salmon and tuna, over a bed of spicy mayo, wasabi mayo, and sriracha!
