Shishito Peppers at Ra Sushi

Tender but with just the right amount of spring and snap left in them, a dish of green shishito peppers is the ideal way to kick off a meal at Ra Sushi. The plump peppers are sautéed with garlic and tossed with black sesame seeds, togarashi, sriracha and Tsuyu No Moto (seasoned soy sauce). They run the gamut from mild to the occasional spicy surprise, but mostly they just deliver a satisfying warmth that will rev you up for the sushi that’s to come. $7, in Fashion Show, 696-0008, RaSushi.com.

Pork Barbacoa Salad at Café Rio

On a large, fresh flour tortilla is a mixture of blended Mexican cheeses, rice, beans, romaine lettuce, pico de gallo, guacamole, tortilla strips and cotija cheese. But, of course, it’s the pork barbacoa—slow roasted with secret spices for five hours, then hand-shredded and marinated for 24 hours—that makes this salad special. It comes with a choice of tomatillo or cilantro-lime vinaigrette dressing. $7.75, multiple locations, 948-1500, CafeRio.com.
