Tex Wasabi’s Rock-N-Roll Sushi-BBQ Restaurant Review

: Guy Fieri, a local restaurateur and Food Network celebrity with a rep for brazen themes, hits pay dirt with this daredevil concept. In the mood for raw or a 14-hour smoking? Why flip a coin for unagi versus brisket when you can order both? Pop plush pork “sliders,” a trio or a dozen, then conquer the smoked ribs and chicken platter. Or take a more ethereal route with hamachi nigiri or a spicy tuna inside-out roll. The fusion here gets a little dicey, as in the Cajun chicken club wrapped in sushi rice or the barbecued pork, avocado and french fries roll. But it’s all about being fearless and having fun, as embodied by the youthful throngs and staff. Fortunately, the flippant-sounding menu choices (like Eddie’s Mommy for soybean pods and Garden of Good and Evil Lettuce Wrap) maintain underlying respect for ingredients. Wash it all down with a wild cocktail from a vast list, including party-size “bowlas,” or a bargain bottle of respectable wine.
