A Visit to Little Katana

DSC00064by Steven Doyle

Nestled on the corner Travis and Knox, Little Katana quietly serves up sushi and Korean dishes to neighborhood patrons who pack the house all through the week. Monday is the perfect day to acquaint yourself with this little gem as it is half price sushi rolls and bottles of wine and sake. For the uninitiated, you may wish to start your dinner with the sampler platter which includes Crab Tempura, Seared Ahi Tuna, Shrimp and Lump Crab Cake and Coconut Shrimp Tempura served with an Asian Slaw.

You may have also heard the name Little Katana bandied about with regards to the new addition of restaurants at Dallas Omni downtown. Let us chat about this little sushi wonder for a bit:

Particularly enjoyable on the appetizer side of the menu are several hot rocks where the guest becomes the cook, sizzling bits of Kobe steak or thin slices of Maine lobster. Both are served with a spread of delicious sauces.  Other apps you may wish to check out are the Shumai which are steamed and packed with flavor. Often you will find these dumplings rubbery, but Katana’s version are soft and supple.    Continue reading

Bringing Harrington back from New York was a major coup for Bolsa as the chef has some major skills as evidenced by his new menu at the Oak Cliff restaurant.   Continue reading
