The dining room, food, and sounds of a language I had no hope of understanding took me back to my travels in Japan. Hard to believe I was in the U.S.
AAA Inspector Notes
Admittedly, the strip center this eatery is located in does not prepare you for the voyage you will take. Once inside, you will be transported to a tiny, authentic izakaya complete with horigotatsu seating. If you have a small party you will likely be guided to the small bar, to better watch the chefs craft preparations of seared bonito, grilled yellow tail, daily sashimi specials or ramen noodle bowls. It's an experience, but wear your good socks. Shoes come off at the tables. If you're stuck at DFW Airport with an extended layover, you may be tempted to do barbecue or steak, but this restaurant is worth the 10-minute drive over.
