Foodie Friday: Hanaya Hibachi & Sushi – Yet Another Great Addition to Lakeside DFW

Just when we thought Lakeside DFW couldn’t get any better, a new Asian fusion restaurant opened its doors this week offering local residents a delicious and beautiful dining experience.

Hanaya Hibachi & Sushi is owned and operated by the same people who run Kobeya Japanese Steak & Sushi in Southlake Town Square, so if you’ve dined at that restaurant, expect the same level of service, cuisine, and atmosphere.

Hanaya offers 8 hibachi tables for diners, or if you’d rather sit at one of their dine-in tables and enjoy offerings from their menu of sushi, ramen, and rice bowls, you can do that as well.

Because we wanted the full entertainment + food experience this week, we opted to enjoy their hibachi dinner and were definitely not disappointed!

Their hibachi experience is similar to other hibachi restaurants – it’s a fun, unique experience to sit around a table with people you may or may not know and watch your food be prepared with lots of extra pizzazz. But their food was different than any other hibachi food I’ve ever tasted. The menu items were the same, but the flavors infused into those menu items were uniquely Hanaya’s. I wish I could explain to you why it tasted deliciously different, but you’ll just have to go try it out for yourself!

In addition to our fun and tasty hibachi meal, we also tried one of Hanaya’s (many) signature sushi rolls – the What A Roll which has yellow tail, spicy tuna and little red fish eggs on top. All of the ingredients in the roll tasted so fresh and we wish we would have had room in our stomachs to try a few more of their signature rolls like the Flower Mound.

They also have all the rolls and sushi you’re familiar with as well. And our favorite part was their sushi bar where you can actually see all the fresh seafood ingredients they utilize in their sushi preparations!

Hanaya is a true Asian fusion restaurant with their fantastic offerings of hibachi, sushi and ramen. We are so glad to see them finally open in Lakeside DFW and know there are many of you who are excited they are open as well!

Keep in mind that this week was their “soft opening,” so things could get a little crowded there as lots of residents try them out this weekend. But we definitely encourage you to enjoy a fun and scrumptious meal with them.

And if you go this evening, don’t forget to check out the fireworks over Lake Grapevine which you can see from Sunset Point. And you can also enjoy music from Manny Trevino as part of the Lakeside Music Series.

*Hanaya Hibachi & Sushi is located at 2314 Lakeside Pkwy, Flower Mound 75022.

Foodie Friday: World-Class Sushi at Edohana

Something you may or may not know about our team is that we LOVE sushi. It’s probably one of my personal favorite kind of meals to go enjoy. And our Buyer Specialist, Nina Boyd, is also an experienced sushi connoisseur, so this week we visited one of her personal favorite local sushi restaurants, Edohana Sushi in Flower Mound.

From the moment we walked inside, I loved the warm, inviting atmosphere. And we were greeted by 11-year owner, Kimmy Seon, who gave us a lesson on what makes their sushi so fresh compared to many other sushi restaurants.

All of their ingredients are delivered fresh daily. And her chef (who has been preparing sushi for 16 years) is a master at utilizing the fish so that he only serves the freshest and best cuts in their sushi.

This all stems from training Kimmy received after studying for several years under some of the best sushi restaurant chefs in Japan and running restaurants and hotels in three different countries.

We sat next to a couple who are also regulars of Edohana and who said they keep coming back because of the incredible food at such a great value. Plus, you can’t beat the convenience of it!

I loved absolutely everything that we tried. And the best part is that while we ate a lot, I didn’t leave our meal feeling overly stuffed. Which I attribute to the freshness and quality of what we were served.

We started out with some of their Jalapeno Poppers – lightly battered and deep-fried jalapenos stuffed with crab meat. They had a gentle heat to them which was balanced by the richness of the crab meat.

And we also ate their Tempura Fried Shrimp which were gigantic! Those were some quality shrimp – definitely not something you can get just anywhere here in DFW.

When it came to trying some of their sushi options, we sampled both some sashimi and roll menu items including: the Sashimi Sampler made with 5 pieces of assorted fish; their tuna tower; the Green Hulk made with shrimp tempura and crab meat and topped with avocado, crawfish, wasabi and sweet sauce; and the spicy tuna roll.

Then to top everything off, we completed our meal with a serving of their Tempura Ice Cream which was the perfect mix of crunchy batter and silky smooth ice cream.

This was honestly some of the best sushi I’ve ever had, so if you’re a sushi connoisseur like us and you’ve never been to Edohana, hop in your car and get yourself there immediately! We are so lucky to have this gem right here in our community!

Edohana Sushi is located at 1900 Long Prairie Rd, Flower Mound TX 75028.
