my sweetie 'n' i took teague out to lunch at wasabi sushi (in the same shopping center as half price books on south hulen) for his b-day. good place (in spite of the cheesy jazz-lite soundtrack) -- nicely appointed room, fast service, and everything tasted fresh. we ordered from the lunch menu. started with miso soup. i had a three-roll plate with shrimp tempura, spicy tuna and spicy salmon rolls. she had an avocado roll in place of the tempura. nice contrast between the hot wasabi and sweet shaved ginger on the plate, and the waiter brought extra ginger when i asked. teague had tempura udon (soup with batter-dipped and fried shrimp, sweet potato, green bean, carrot and eggplant on the side) that looked boss as well. lunch menu runs between $8-$10 and was more filling than this kind of thing often is. we'll go back.
