Japanese Food Porn From Sharaku Sake Lounge

by Steven Doyle         photos by Joey Stewart

CraveDFW contributor Joey Stewart prepared this photo essay during a recent visit to Sharaku Sake Lounge, a particularly wonderful izakaya. Consider a izakaya like a Japanese tapas bar which offers sake and small plates like crispy fried morsels called kushiage, grilled skewers called kushiyaki, and shabu-shabu which are meats cooked tableside in steaming pots of broth.

Sharaku has the same owner as one of the very best sushi bars nearly next door, Yutaka Sushi Bistro. Both spots are fresh, contemporary and exemplary. Both are located in a small strip center in the 2600 block of McKinney in Uptown Dallas.

There are plenty of fun dishes to order from the menu while washing them down with bottles of Kirin, or one of the many sakes and custom cocktails.  We will let the dishes speak for themselves today as Joey walks us through his dining experience.
