No restaurant in Houston feels more like dining in Japan than this Memorial restaurant. From the shouted greetings upon entering the dining room to the menu of sushi, yakitori skewers, and noodles, the entire dining experience is designed to transport diners. Recommended dishes include the fried pork skewers, the ground chicken meat skewers with egg yolk, sea scallop skewers, and whatever nigiri is on special that day. Pairing the food with a cold Asahi or two is optional but definitely encouraged.
