amazing Sushi Roku dish

Had an ok meal at Sushi Roku in Old Town Pasadena (33 Miller Alley, near Il Fornaio and Colorado and Fair Oaks) but there was one unexpected extraordinary dish: the "Jalapeno Roll". This was a typical looking rice/seaweed roll, but in the middle there was a crunchy deep fried jalapeno - amazing depth of flavor, very mild heat, and an aftertaste that could do a 1961 Mouton Rothchild justice. Next time I go - it will be soon - this is the only thing I will order.
