[image-1] This Wed. Sept. 25, MESU, Upper King’s new Mexican and sushi fusion restaurant, will be celebrating its grand opening at 570 King St. starting at 8 p.m.

Located next Bourbon N’ Bubbles, which is owned by the same team, MESU’s menu features eats from both Mexican and Asian cuisines, from fish tacos to spicy tuna rolls.

[image-2] The menu is divided into “Mexican,” “Sushi,” “Tacos,” and “Sushi Rolls.” Highlights include clothespin tacos (2 for $12) with a choice of either orange-scented roast pork or barbacoa braised beef with smoked gouda, pickled veg, pumpkin seeds, and avocado tomatillo sauce. Their Honolulu fish bowl ($18) will be made with “assorted Hawaiian fish” served over sticky rice Sriracha aioli, cucumbers, edamame, crispy onions, avocado, and tobiko.

In keeping with theme, MESU will also have a full sake and tequila bar.

The interior of the restaurant will feature a collection of street art and original prints so guests will be able to enjoy their tuna poke tower in the company of works by world-renowned artists such as Jeff Koons and Alec Monopoly.

MESU has already hosted a few family and friend events, with the likes of SoCharm‘s Craig Conover stopping by for “sake cups.”

MESU will be open seven days a week for dinner from 4-11 p.m. and late night from 11 p.m.- 2 a.m. with “live beats.” For more information on the restaurant and its menu, visit mesuchs.com.
