Carina Ost If you like coconut shrimp rolls and getting caught in the rain.
For a taste of the tropics, grab hold of this coconut shrimp roll ($12.75) at Doraku. It features coconut-crusted fried black tiger prawns. It's wrapped up with avocado and scallions, then topped with coconut milk and a mango juice reduction.
9. Rock Shrimp Tempura Maki at Makoto
Carina Ost Curry over California.
California may be famous for its eponymous sushi roll, but Miami adds more spice to it. This rock shrimp tempura maki ($14) at Makoto features fried shrimp and curry aioli over a California roll. It's a roll like no other. The aroma of Japanese curry is striking. And the flavor packs an equal punch. It offers a rich juxtaposition to the sashimi served at this refined restaurant.
