Chirashi?

m

When I lived in New Orleans, nearly every sushi place had "Chirashi" on the menu - a bowl of rice with fish arranged on top - usually great variety and pretty economical too. (Kyoto's was particularly over the top, if anyone ever heads that way). Here is Dallas, Sushi Zushi seems to be the only place that has it, but I'm hoping to find some other places to try.

Anyone know of any?

    Try Sushi Robata (http://www.sushirobatadallas.com/) at Frankford & the Tollway. I'm pretty sure I've seen it on the menu there.

      In the order of my preference: Masami: http://www.masamirestaurant.com/home.html. Masami also has a Sashimi Lunch Box that is only $0.50 more that is quite good and also comes with rice and other extras.
      KU Sushi: http://www.kusushidallas.com/ - better than you might expect and they will substitute on chirashiju if you ask. I don't particularly care for escolar (super white tuna so they sub that for me).
      Sushi Sake: http://sushi-sake.com/. Everyone seems to rave about Sushi Sake and I cannot fault the quality or freshness of their fish at all but I find them to be the least accommodating and to have less personal type service than the other two - but maybe that's just me.

        Service at Sushi Sake is much better at their sushi bar than at a table.
        Sushi Sake has always been my most favorite sushi bar in the Dallas area. I find it incomparable. And, they're priced less than other sushi bars.

          Yeah - actually I would agree - I forgot about Sushi Sake ( I guess I was being literal when I said Dallas)! There's is probably better - and they have better sake choices too!

            I always sit at the sushi bar. I am always very polite and I always tip at least 20% but the two times I've asked a question about a fish on the blackboard, they've just sort of brushed me off - like saying too fishy for you. Well how do they know? As is true of most hounds I will try most anything and I pretty much like everything. Also one thing that truly irritates me there is they will not sell you a side order of sushi rice. I like to get several different orders of sashimi with a side of sushi rice and they absoltuely refuse to accommodate. I have never experienced this anywhere else - in Dallas or otherwise. Very peculiar.

              hunh. weird. I never thought of them having great service I guess but I also never thought of it as lousy.

            I personally prefer Sushi Robata. There chirashi will be similar quality to all the other places, but with the addition of their grilled food it's the winner.

              Ok - I saw Ku sushi the other day - its close to my house so I'll have to check it out!

              Teppo, Masami, Sushi Robata, and Sushi Sake should all have you covered on chirashi.

                I love Teppo. Especially their specials. The owner of Masami (I don't remember his name) worked at Sushi Sake from when Soda san first opened. He was the number 2 Itamae under Soda san.

                Another option is Sushiyama on Forest near TI. Again their other Japanese food is also good.
                http://www.sushidallas.org/media/sush... The only issue with them is their service leaves a lot to be desired.
