Dallas has almost as many sushi restaurants as it does Tex-Mex ones, but not many live up to, and in this case, exceed expectations like this pocket-sized sushi-paradise does. And with its sleek decor and prominent sushi counter, Teppo would fit just as comfortably in a Tokyo suburb as it does on lowest Greenville. The chef, Tomoaki "Tommy" Nishigaya, not only sources excellent quality fish and seafood, he also possesses the skill in bringing out its best flavors. Soy marinated, torched toro is a regular crowd-pleaser, while Spanish mackerel, sea urchin and Kumamoto oysters are showcased as well. Not-to-be missed is the miso-marinated foie gras with toasted chopped pecan. But save room for the yakitori, which ranges from char-grilled chicken, duck and quail to beef, pork and organ meats. Desserts are equally interesting, especially the house made ice creams that come in flavors like black sesame with azuki beans or green tea.
- Lowest Greenville's Best Restaurants: "Arrive early (before the dinner rush) and request a seat at the far end of the sushi bar in front of the chef."
- Best for Lowest Greenville's Best Restaurants Because: Teppo is one of the best places to find quality sushi and sashimi in Dallas.
