The yakitori is a customer favorite at Pacific Rim. Our top yakitori picks are the rich pork belly, tantalizing bacon-wrapped shrimp & scallops, mouth-watering salmon and fresh vegetables skewers.

Both the chilled Gulf oysters and the kani fried Gulf oysters are phenomenal. The kani fried oysters are lightly fried in Japanese tempura and topped with tempura kani.

Co-owner Benny Leung shared a few exiting new menu items with us to include a variety of comforting dim sum dumplings and the slow cooked short ribs. Both the delightful shrimp and the savory opened-faced pork dumplings are incredibly addicting. The slow cooked ribs are marinated in Korean BBQ sauce and smoked seasoning.
