Cafe Kubo's Sushi
GREAT new sushi place in Chinatown. It's in a really nice new strip center on 9889 Bellaire Blvd. Ste. 234. The food is really good and the prices are super low. I was introduced to Cafe Kubo's Sushi by Mrs. Foster, a Japanese woman who belongs to my Buddhist organization. She is really picky about Japanese food, so I knew it had to be good. My favorite is the Roll Combo B at $8.49, you get a California Roll (8 Pieces), a Spicy Tuna Roll (8 Pieces), and Crunchy Eel Roll (4 pieces). You can see in the photo that the presentation is artful, and they use three colors of roe - red, green, and black.
Connor likes the Chicken Teriyaki bento box, which is a steal at $6.99. It includes salad, pickle, broccoli, a dumpling, rice and edamame. The atmosphere is very casual and brightly colored in green, orange, and white. There is even a couch and cushy chairs, if you feel like just having coffee or tea with friends. If the great food, funky atmosphere, and low prices weren't enough, Cafe Kubo's also has free wi-fi. It's no wonder that I have been back almost weekly since I was introduced to this little gem.
