Good 'non-sushi' Japanese food in town?

Hey guys, I was looking for a good authentic (or as close as you can get to 'authentic' in DFW) Japanese restaurant that showcase the non-sushi side of Japanese cuisine, hence the title. So far, my favorite is Sushiyama near 635&Forest - their ramen and tonkatsu were pretty good, and their takoyaki is almost similar to the ones I had in Osaka, Japan, but I was wondering if there was some other places in town that has stuff like donburi and Japanese style curry rice and what not, other than Sushiyama. Any suggestions?

  1. Sushi Robata on Frankford & NDT has a very good selection of grilled foods and other typical Japanese including Takoyaki.

      Yup, the hot foods at Robata beat out what they serve at Sushiyama.

      a few other ideas...

      Curry rice: Mr. Max

      Tonkatsu: Ino, and I have heard they do a good donburi

      Yakitori (and they have other good hot foods besides this): Teppo

      Tei An already mentioned, you can get soba there but in general they have a lot of interesting non-sushi food as well.

      1. I think that Tei Tei Robata Bar on Henderson is good. I'm probably not the best judge of how authentic it is, as I've only spent three weeks in Japan. But my girlfriend lived there for three years and seem to enjoy it too.
