Oishii Sushi House, New Orleans, LA Report #474

I’m sure a lot of people aren’t even aware this place exists. It’s on a busy street, but all the way at the end of a little strip mall, and hidden behind a gas station and the Olive Branch Café. Basically, impossible to see from the street. The only reason I knew it was back… Continue reading Oishii Sushi House, New Orleans, LA Report #474

Kanno, Metairie, LA Report #454

Today was my son’s birthday. He, like me, is a sushi lover. I heard a lot of good things about this place but neither of us had tried it yet, so I invited him for a sushi birthday feast! Let’s back up about a week. That’s when I invited him. He was going to a… Continue reading Kanno, Metairie, LA Report #454

Shogun, Metairie, LA Report #439

I’ve reviewed numerous sushi joints in and around the New Orleans area, and can’t believe I’ve never reviewed this one. Why you ask? Because when this place opened in 1981 it was the very first place in the New Orleans area to have a sushi bar. Other restaurants had served sushi, but didn’t have a… Continue reading Shogun, Metairie, LA Report #439

Café Zen, Gretna, LA Report #393

There’s a few restaurants in this little strip mall. Banana Blossom used to be located a few doors down from here until they moved. But then Jasmine Rice, another good Thai place, moved into their vacated spot. Being a regular customer of those places I kept seeing this restaurant, saying I’d give it a try… Continue reading Café Zen, Gretna, LA Report #393

Poseidon, New Orleans, LA Report #353

Sushi for lunch today! This place is located on the bottom floor of a Condo/Apartment building in the Lower Garden District of New Orleans. Honestly, until today I never even knew it was in there. My dining partner is a fan of this place, and their Poseidon Roll. Nice looking restaurant. I guess the bar… Continue reading Poseidon, New Orleans, LA Report #353

Wasabi, New Orleans, LA Report #325

This place is located in the Marigny neighborhood of New Orleans, which is right next to the French Quarter. We came here today because I had something I hadn’t used in a while. A Groupon! I forget when I bought it, but I think it was supposed to expire in May or June, but thanks… Continue reading Wasabi, New Orleans, LA Report #325

Akira Sushi & Hibachi, Metairie, LA Report #273

This little area of Metairie is called Fat City.  Pick a cuisine, and you can find a restaurant around here that offers it.  The ones I’ve been to around here are Drago’s, Los Jefes, Bravo, Pho Michael, PF Chang’s and Todd’s Frozen Yogurt.  That represents Creole/Seafood, Mexican, Italian, Vietnamese, Chinese and a place for dessert. … Continue reading Akira Sushi & Hibachi, Metairie, LA Report #273

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
