Dallas’ Japanese dining scene has truly blossomed.Not that it was shabby to start with. We’ve long enjoyed an elegant place for inventive, inspired creations from one of the city’s most talented and thoughtful chefs — who, by the way, also turns out some of the best handmade soba noodles in the country. And for years we’ve had a great place for robatayaki — grilled seafood cooked in the centuries-old country hearth style of Japanese fishermen.
But in the last 12 months, we’ve been introduced to an awesome new ramen shop, a spirited izakaya #Japanese tavern# that would feel right at home in Tokyo and a spectacular modern Japanese restaurant that earned five stars in a recent review — all debuts that have boosted our Japanese dining scene, taking it from notable to marvelous.
