Where Speer, Broadway and 6th Avenue meet, Mt. Fuji Hibachi and Sushi Bar takes care of foodies at Denver’s busiest intersection. With well over 120 menu options, the restaurant offers an array of delicious eats, specifically at the sushi bar and hibachi table.
Mt. Fuji’s new manager, Tom Chiu, brings a lengthy amount of restaurant industry experience with him, leaving a Chinese restaurant to join the Mt. Fuji team. “More people are open to trying sushi,” he said. “especially in the summer when people are looking to get a light lunch or dinner.”
Chiu focuses on unique specials including happy hour discounts, hibachi deals and all-you-can-eat sushi options.
Unbeknownst from the restaurant’s exterior, it is quite specious with a large hibachi room designed for parties and meetings. On Sunday and Monday, Mt. Fuji offers a hibachi special for two, which includes the choice of chicken, steak, salmon, shrimp or filet mignon, and served with soup, salad, noodles and white rice.
Now in its fourth year, the restaurant must take party reservations, as the hibachi room is often packed with guests enjoying freshly cooked meats and veggies right at their table.
The restaurant, owned by Jackie Chen, boasts a colorful cocktail and wine bar with an extensive selection of sake—Chiu noting that the cold sake is the best seller.
Of course, the ever-changing sushi menu draws in regulars as well as first-timers. Mt. Fuji special rolls written on a dry-erase board welcome guests to try something different upon each visit.
The Rock and Roll was this week’s special, which contains spicy tuna, cucumber, avocado, crunch, and mango wrapped with soy paper. Other special rolls on the menu include: the Diamond Roll with spicy crunch tuna and tobiko; the Blue Maki with sea bass tempura; and the Joy Roll with sweet inari and cream cheese.
With its considerable array of dishes, you’d have to visit Mt. Fuji dozens of times to truly experience all that the restaurant has to offer.
