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

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

Umi II, New Orleans, LA Report #80

    Located at the end of a little strip mall, looking at this place from the outside you wouldn’t think it’s as spacious and pretty as it is.  Once you get inside it’s very nice.  I tried Umi II maybe 8 months ago and the food was good, but the service was utterly terrible. … Continue reading Umi II, New Orleans, LA Report #80

Mikimoto Japanese Restaurant, New Orleans, LA Report #51

This is my favorite place for sushi in New Orleans for a couple of reasons.  One is the food is good.  Two, I’ll explain later. The place is tiny.  If you’re facing the building on the left side there’s a drive through AND parking.  These two don’t go together, as you can see better if… Continue reading Mikimoto Japanese Restaurant, New Orleans, LA Report #51
