Exploring the anatomy of sushi rolls at the new Geisha House

The original Geisha House Japanese steakhouse on East Desert Inn has been around for decades, sprouting off into several sushi-and-hibachi joints around town. Now there are three, with the arrival of the giant new Geisha in the Grand Canyon shopping center in the space formerly known as Sapporo. To complement the sizzling steak and cool sake, there’s a wide variety of fun maki (rolls) that pack as much fresh fish and wild flavor as is legally allowed inside a nori wrapper.

Spicy crab, because every roll needs some.

Deep-fried salmon: kinda weird, really tasty.

A razor-thin raw tuna wrap, instead of boring nori.

Fresh veggie topping, a little pico de gallo action just for fun.

Spicy tuna mixture, everybody’s favorite.
