Sushi Yoko combines a clean modernist interior with a classic array of Japanese fare. Their sushi chefs roll simple maki that showcase morsels of eel or tuna, much as plants and sculptures are showcased in the mauve and tan insets along the dining-room walls. Chefs also combine flavors into specialty rolls such as the DFW Tower roll, a medley of crabmeat, avocado, and spicy tuna. Flames lick entrees of una ju, a broiled freshwater eel in unagi sauce, or katsudon, a combination of deep-fried pork loin with veggies, eggs, and house sauce. A broad sushi bar gives ample illumination for diners to admire chefs' artful presentation and the tiny autographs they leave on every grain of rice.
