Hi Dallas Chowhounds! I just recently moved to Dallas from Philadelphia. Now in withdrawal from great Asian food.
Here is what I am looking for:
Japanese restaurants that have excellent fresh fish. I'm a fan of sashimi, and not that interested in fancy rolls with fancy sauces, so fresh fish is key. I also prefer a down-to-earth place rather than fancy, hip places.
For those of who familiar with PA/NJ area - my best Japanese place was SAGAMI in Collingswood, NJ. So I'm hoping to find a place in Dallas that is similar.
So far I have been to:
Sushi Sake in Richardson. I thought the sashimi was pretty good, except for the tuna. But a bit on the expensive side.
Citizen for a special occasion. Fish was very good, though cannot afford to go there often.
I go to First Chinese BBQ about 2-3 x a month, but looking for some other alternatives.
Have also found Jeng Chi in Richardson recently, which is quite good as well.
Any other suggestions are welcome.
I just want good, basic pho. For those who know Philadelphia, my favorite was Pho 75 on Washington St.
Any authentic Thai restaurants suggestions are welcome. Have been to Royal Thai on Greenville/Lovers, but found their food way too greasy.
