The Three Best Spots for Sushi in West HoustonWhen you’re in the mood for sushi, nothing else will do. The Japanese delicacy is one of the most popular cuisines in Houston, and there’s even a 17,000 member club dedicated to sushi. You can get it from places as diverse as high-end restaurants to strip mall storefronts. There are several options to satisfy your cravings for maki, nigiri, and sashimi. If you’re looking for the freshest and tastiest, these are the three best spots for sushi in West Houston.
Aka Sushi House
For lunch or dinner in a quaint neighborhood spot, visit Aka Sushi House. They’re known for offering sustainable seafood, and their menu features all the standard rolls you’ve come to expect. They also offer ramen, made at their sister restaurant Tiger Den. They’re probably best known, however, for their generous happy hour. From 3 pm to 7 pm and from 9 pm to close during the week, and all day on Saturday and Sunday, they offer an extensive selection of discounted items.
Generally acclaimed as the best sushi restaurant in Houston, Kata Robata is helmed by a James Beard-nominated chef. Their fish is flown in directly from Japan multiple times a week, and you can also get locally-sourced soft shell crab. For the complete experience, get a seat at the sushi bar and try the omakase menu. This prix fixe extravaganza is considered one of the best dining experiences in the city.
