Richard Sandoval’s Masa 14, one of his many D.C. area Latin-Asian small plate joints, has rolled out a series of exciting new dishes under the direction of newly appointed chef de cuisine Felipe Milanes. The new dishes highlight the existing menu, which consists of a mix of sushi and dim sum, along with ceviches, flatbreads, and grilled items.
Best of all, on Wednesday nights Masa 14 is now offering half price sushi all night long.
That’s right, you can get every sushi item they have on the menu for half price all night on Wednesday. So whether you show up for happy hour or last call, you can grab some of their signature rolls at a bargain price, and there’s some strong competition on that list in terms of what you’ll want to try most.
That includes the Spicy Tuna Bakuchiku Roll, with avocado, yuzu kosho and sweet chile, the Scorpion Roll, with prawn tempura, a sesame-chipotle mayo, eel sauce and tobiko, and the Golden Eel Roll, with tamago, avocado, cucumber, and a maple-miso sauce.
Beyond the sushi, the new specials on the menu include some standouts as well. For instance, the “Foie Jita”, a fun foie gras fajita concoction served with a huge sizzling slab of foie, mini tortillas, grilled vegetables and a guava creama sauce which ties the whole concept together. There’s also Spicy Tuna Nachos, made with won ton chips, tuna and cotija cheese, Chicken Chicharrones, and Pork Belly al Carbon, with big hunks of pork belly served with an avocado puree and a yucca-mojo sauce.
Fresh sake cocktails have been added to the menu as well, including the Basil Fresco, with Hendricks gin, sake, fresh basil and simple syrup, and the Sake to Me, with Sauza tequila, sake, and a house-made cherry simple syrup.
If you’ve been waiting for an excuse to head back to Masa 14, then the new plates and the Wednesday night special should certainly be beckoning you over.
