I popped into the newly opened Izikaya Hi for lunch and dined solo at the sushi bar. The restaurant is on far west Westheimer near Dairy Ashford, and a block from a Peruvian restaurant I’d like to try called La Gutarra con Sazon.
I wasn’t all that adventurous and ordered the sashimi bento lunch box. Most serve tuna and salmon and yellowtail is the third fish for sashimi combos. This place had tuna and salmon, but I don’t know what the third fish was. They called it sea bass, and it was amazing. It tasted like butter. Plus it had fish roe and green onions on top. I would like 3 portions of that please. On the other hand, the tuna was tasteless and the salmon average.
For dessert I got the appetizer crab and cream cheese puffs, because I can. There were 5 small but flavorful puffs.
They say they are open with karaoke until 2 a.m. on weekends, I’ll have to take their word on that.
Sure, I’ll be back.
