Sushi in Texas

Let us debunk the myth that great sushi couldn’t possibly be found in such a rough-hewn and raw state as Texas. As discovered in cities like Dallas and Fort Worth, the Lone Star State can be full of surprises when it comes to producing culturally advanced and increasingly popular eateries—proof of a refined palate, a burgeoning ethnic restaurant scene.

One of the best Japanese restaurants is Yutaka Sushi Bistro in uptown Dallas. With exotic fish and vegetables served as sushi—from Tachiuo (belt fish) pressed sushi to crispy and sour Kabu (Japanese turnip) served nigiri-style—Yutaka’s offerings are rare and delicious.

It’s not just about the sushi at Yutaka. The menu here is also divided among the hot dishes, cold dishes, and specialty tempura, the latter of which boasts a memorable fried king crab with jalapeno vinaigrette, tossed with onions and shishito peppers.
