Award: Best Use of Jalapeno
Year Won: 2013
Pick: Editor's Pick

Latin cuisine may have been the first to exploit the humble jalapeño, but the flavorful chile also proves an excellent match for sushi. In Charlotte, there’s no better example than Sushi Guru’s jalapeño hamachi roll. Stuffed with crab and avocado and topped with yellowtail (hamachi) and paper-thin slices of jalapeño, the specialty roll is a mixture of flavors and textures—with a hint of heat—that just works.
