As Winter Park adds fancy new digs that harken back to more traditional ways of eating sushi, chef Jose Joubert Torres is blowing up all pre-conceived notions of rice rolls.

Torres' Maguro Sushi was such a hit as a ghost kitchen that he's been able to move into a proper restaurant space. Maguro's unique take on sushi is built around its signature ingredient, maduros (or ripe plantains), a staple food in the Latin community.

The fusion of Latin and Asian cuisines is now available in-person at 1311 Florida Mall Ave. This new location offers the option of dining in and lets Torres finally get to meet the hungry Orlandoans who crave his unique dishes.
