Founded by the owners of The Fish, Sushipop's menu features fresh specialty rolls and noodle bowls for on-the-go Japanese dining. Sidle up to the counter and toss back a smooth California roll ($4.95 for 8 pieces), or opt for specialty rolls such as the Tuna on Fire, a spicy tuna tube accented with cucumbers, jalapeños, and a drizzle of house fire sauce ($9.95 for eight pieces). Accessorize your order with single-serving sushi in the form of “pop it” pieces ($1.75 per piece), or go the combo route to tack a miso soup or salad onto a set of sushi such as the High Roller, a trident's worth of shrimp tempura, spicy tuna, and spider hand rolls ($9.95). Palates passionately opposed to deep-sea dining can slurp the grilled-chicken udon soup ($6.95) or nosh extras such as fried dumplings ($3.95 for five pieces) and edamame ($3.95).
Twelve chefs clad in black uniforms and red hats stand at attention over tableside hibachis. All eyes on them, they start to play with their food: the culinary wizards wave lobster tails at guests, set onions aflame, and flip shrimp high in the air to land in their tall hats. “It is not just about the food, it’s about the show,” says Sumo Japanese Steakhouse owner Brad Meltzer. “The show brings you in and the food brings you back.”
Prior to landing on the hibachi grill, beef is butchered in-house and dressed in its Sunday best. Filet mignon shares grilling space with salmon, chicken, tuna, and scallops dipped in house-made ginger sauce. Meltzer and a small army of trained sushi chefs designed their menu of more than two dozen nigiri and sashimi rolls to please even the prickliest taste buds. Meltzer himself favors the 210 roll, a cyclone of scallops, shrimp, and crab slathered in sweet-and-spicy sauce and topped with crabstick, eel sauce, spicy mayo, and a snowfall of tempura flakes.
Naan Sushi Japanese Restaurant's skilled culinary artisans craft specialty sushi and upscale Japanese cuisine amid the restaurant's modernistic décor. Fresh sushi and entrees populate Naan's dinner menu with rolls such as the Texas Tornado, a spicy deep-fried vortex of jalapeños, scallions, and yellowtail served on a double-reinforced storm plate. Lighter fare gently cares for subtle hunger pangs with antidotes such as soups, salads, and deep gulps of fresh air. A line of cushioned couches snakes through the restaurant, separating the spacious dining room from the luminous bar and giving Naan's layout a one-of-a-kind shape. White-clothed tabletops and chairs fill the dining area and provide a bright contrast to the dark-leather armchairs, an accordion partition adorned with dragons, and a campfire surrounded by Eagle Scouts. Patrons can also show off their rock-star-imitating powers at karaoke nights each Saturday at the Dallas location and each Thursday at the Plano location.

If you peek into the kitchen of Big Fish, you might see sushi in its rawest form: a whole salmon, fresh from the ocean, scales shimmering beneath the chef's knife. Breaking down whole fish is a daily activity for the restaurant's chef, who excels at preparing platters of tender sashimi and sushi rolls. Sizzling fried rice, bento boxes, and ramen bowls are a few other specialties. Pair your meal with one of the spot's specialty drinks, such as a green tea frappuccino or a boba smoothie.
