It's far Eastern culture that you can now find in Granger. Located inside Heritage Square is the plaza's newest restaurant, Soho Japanese Bistro.
When you walk in, you are instantly greeted by a wall of water.
“The atmosphere here really takes us over the edge. People have been coming in here saying ‘We've needed this for years,'" says General Manager Jesse Limon.
A wood beam ceiling and Japanese archways hover over guests as they dine beneath a twinkling night sky. Under your feet, leaves are etched into the tile.
A stylish bar occupies a corner of the restaurant which features three different kitchens: teppanyaki rooms with numerous grills, a large, fresh sushi bar, and a line kitchen. But if you're not a fan of sushi don’t worry, they have chicken dinners, steak, duck, salmon, cod, and much more.
As for prices, Soho runs the gamut when it comes to cost. Anything from a $7 appetizer to $35 dinners. Whatever your price range, you’re bound to find something; if you're on a budget, you can still have a great meal.
Aside from sampling some sushi, I headed over to have dinner in the teppanyaki room. Some of the staff joined me around the grill for a dinner which was complete with fire, shrimp, chicken, and steak (I’m not a fan of beef, but I must say it was quite yummy).
Ahi tuna was also on the menu as was the ‘Oceans 11,’ a giant boat-full of sashimi and sushi and spicy tuna rolls, which feeds a lot of people and runs about $55.
However, I was told the mob lobster roll is heavenly so had to try it. It is a lobster tail in rice wrapped with fresh slices of regular tuna, mango, white tuna, and salmon and topped with caviar.
Soho Japanese Bistro is more than just sushi; it's a taste, a visual and overall experience for the senses with one goal in mind.
Over the years I’ve eaten at Japanese/Sushi places from New York and L.A. to Miami and Hawaii, and Soho ranks up there with one of my favorites.
