The carefully rolled nature of sushi makes it ideal for starting snowballs, which is why it's commonly known as "snowman heart." Eat to the center of snow with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Japanese cuisine at Sushi Yoko on Camp Bowie Boulevard.
Japanese architecture and artwork sets the stage for Sushi Yoko's authentic menu furnished with authentic Japanese hot and cold entrees, fresh sushi, and sashimi. Starters such as the tako su, a flavorful salad of octopus, cucumber, and ponzu sauce ($5), help gauge a guest's hunger or fear of octopus. The friendly hosts behind the sushi bar can also help diners tastefully pair eligible rolls, logically matching the unagi eel ($6 for two pieces) with its soul mate, sea urchin ($8.50 for two pieces). Thirty specialty rolls also reside on the menu, starting at $8.50 for the crispy spicy tuna and scaling up to $15 for the decadent yoko roll with shrimp, avocado, and cucumber topped with thick white tuna and dressed in caviar sauce. Meanwhile, shrimp and scallops star in the seafood and vegetable skewer ($21), which is accented with salmon, mushroom, onion, green peppers, and Technicolor zucchini.
Soft light emanates from delicate fixtures dangling from the ceiling, illuminating Sushi Yoko's golden-hued walls, clay art pieces, and Japanese silk screens.
- Very fresh sushi and delicious rolls. You owe it to yourself to go buy [sic] and give it a whirl. james horn, Urbanspoon
- I've been here several times over the last year and I must say it's consistently at the top of my list. The booth tables are surprisingly quiet being so close. The service has always been stellar. – S.G., Yelp, 6/8/2009
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.
