I raved about the samurai burrito at Wafu of Japan last month; here's another Japexican creation from this small, delicious eatery: jalapeños stuffed with spicy tuna.
No need to buy Tums. The chilies that Wafu's chefs use are of the shishito variety, more piquant than fiery, while when has anyone ever broken a sweat over spicy tuna? But this combination, deep-fried, serves as one appetizer that sparks multiple orders because everyone wants to feast on a platter to themselves.
Wafu of Japan at 320 Bristol St., Ste. G, Costa Mesa, (714) 641-7321. And now, a Japanese man in Mexico!
