SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Choosing between Asian or Mexican food has gotten a little easier for Valley foodies with the opening of Sumo Maya in Scottsdale. The new restaurant combines both types of cuisines for one unique flavor and experience.

3TV's Heidi Goitia spoke with chef Herb Wilson about the restaurant's interesting menu and decor. A large, very realistic, custom-built tree is the most eye-catching design element within the restaurant, but the entire place has a contemporary design.

The menu features selections made in a wok, a pastor grill, a sushi bar, a Spanish plancha, a wood-burning grill, a deep frier and a guacamole bar. The drink selection is robust as well, with cocktails, tequilla, wine and sake all being featured.

The restaurant opened on June 16 at 3 p.m., just in time for the first patrons to watch team USA's first World Cup game. Sumo Maya opens daily at 3 p.m. for now, but they'll be adding lunch and brunch in the future. More information and a menu can be found on Sumo Maya's website.
