Chef Shaun Gingerich's Jpan Dinner

Jpan Sushi & Grill


It’s Thanksgiving Day and although most will be enjoying a typical turkey dinner, others might want to step out of the box and indulge in an all-Japanese meal the day after. Chef Shaun Gingerinch from Jpan UTC whips up dishes for those craving Asian food this holiday weekend. For an attention-grabbing appetizer, Chef Gingerich prepares steamed pork dumplings stuffed with cabbage and carrots served with a side of sweet soy vinaigrette for a well-balanced taste. For the main course he introduces a tuna tataki—seared slices of tuna are doused in a light citrus soy sauce. Alongside the tuna, Chef Gingerich adds in a customer favorite: the Aloha roll. Rolled to perfection, this sushi includes shrimp tempura and cream cheese topped with mango slices and coconut shavings. If you are a sake lover, order their Mona sake mixed with yuzu (Japanese citrus) over ice with a garnish of shiso or perilla leaves for a minty kick. “This is our signature sake exclusive at the UTC location,” says Gingerich. Sake, dumplings and sushi—it doesn’t get any better than this.
