Little Tokyo, Metairie, LA Report #237

Long ago, when I was in my late 20’s, this was the first place I ever ate sushi in my life.  It was at a different location back then, but I see why they moved.  They have a lot more space in this location, including an area for Karaoke.  I asked our waitress when they… Continue reading Little Tokyo, Metairie, LA Report #237

Royal Sushi & Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #217

The last time I was in this building it was a Thai restaurant named Sukho Thai.  Great Thai food, by the way.  I heard this place has fantastic Ramen, and since we’re having a cool snap here in New Orleans (84 degrees, it’s cloudy and raining), I decided to come get a bowl! This is… Continue reading Royal Sushi & Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #217

Tsunami, New Orleans, LA Report #195

This place is located on the ground floor of the Pan-American Life Building, in the Central Business District.  Since the restaurant has a Poydras Street address, I entered on Poydras St.  I didn’t see a restaurant, so I started roaming around, until a security guard behind a desk stopped me.  Our exchange went like this:… Continue reading Tsunami, New Orleans, LA Report #195

Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #171

The place is beautiful.  Small bar as soon as you walk… Continue reading Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #171

Fuji Hana, Gretna, LA Report #151

  I don’t know if it’s just me, but it seems most sushi places are pretty much the same.  Same menu, same preparation, etc.  I’m always looking for something that makes one stand out from the others.  Tonight I figured I’d give Fuji Hana a try. Big, pretty place.  If you like hibachi tables there’s… Continue reading Fuji Hana, Gretna, LA Report #151

Sushi Village, Metairie, LA Report #108

  If you go to Metairie, LA., and look really hard, you’ll find Sushi Village in a little strip mall nestled between a Jenny Craig and a frame shop.  The only reason I found the place was because Groupon sent me an email and it was a featured restaurant.  I didn’t read the fine print… Continue reading Sushi Village, Metairie, LA Report #108

Tennou Hibachi & Sushi Bar, Harvey, LA Report #92

  I was in the mood for sushi so I decided to give Tennou a try.  Small place, but nice.  The only hot tea they have is green tea.  If you order it, the pot comes out without tea bags in it, so it’s brewed ahead of time.  No waiting for it to steep. The… Continue reading Tennou Hibachi & Sushi Bar, Harvey, LA Report #92
