On a Friday night, head along Tampa Road and keep your windows down — you'll hear it before you see it. Rumba, Salt Rock Tavern and Hot Tuna are a happening restaurant row. In short, it's a greatest-hits approach to Japanese cooked dishes and sushi, served in a lively, hip environment. You'll find attractively arrayed chicken lettuce cups and greaseless tempura shrimp and veggies, traditional sirloin-wrapped, teriyaki-glazed asparagus negamaki and less traditional fresh rolls with a little bit of strawberry and mango enlivening the shrimp, fake crab, rice noodle assembly. With sushi, rolls aren't oversauced, oversquiggled and overwrought, with the clean, briny flavor of fresh yellowtail, salmon or roe shining through
