Though its space in a Mount Pleasant strip mall feels rather pedestrian, Kanpai offers some of the most delicious expressions of creative Asian food in Charleston. To start, chef and owner Sean Park will dress up edamame with pink Himalayan salt or truffles and hot chili oil. His tasty "Wagyu” roll pairs blowtorched fatty beef and avocado with tempura-fried shrimp and a sweet soy glaze, to excellent results. Hot and feathery beignets make an unexected but sweet end to the meal.
