Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Soba sampler
Soba sampler

"It is hard to find a kitchen that serves dishes that look like works of art and taste even better. I always go for the soba sampler. The perfectly created chilled soba noodles are accompanied by soy, black sesame, pecan, and walnut dipping sauces. All the seafood is outstanding as well, especially the popular sautéed sea snails and oysters."
Ramen
$$, Happy Hour, Sushi, Outdoor Seating, Japanese, Full Bar, Cocktail, Downtown
"I like to have a bowl of their ramen for lunch—it's a life changer! Pork belly and tonkotsu broth are the type of soulful cooking that I adore."

"There are so many things to love about chef Teiichi Sakurai’s soba noodle house, but the duck dipping soba is a must-try. The basket of Teiichi’s freshly made soba noodles are served with a rich, luxurious broth and succulent pieces of duck that make for a truly sensational dining experience. Believe it or not, it gets even better when they bring you some hot water to add to the broth when your noodles are all gone. It’s perfect for a cold winter day."
Chawanmushi
$$, Happy Hour, Sushi, Outdoor Seating, Japanese, Full Bar, Cocktail, Downtown
"This egg custard dish is normally served with crab, but alas, I am allergic. So the chef made one special for me with just mushrooms. Everyone else had it with crab and couldn't stop raving."
