The weekend chef: Some favorites for Chinese, sushi

Posted 6:08pm on Tuesday, Mar. 05, 2013

I cook a lot at home, especially on the grill. But I do get a hankering for sushi and dim sum, and I've been known to drive a long way to indulge in excellent examples of both.

Here are a few of my favorites.


ABC Seafood & Dim Sum, Arlington: Getting good dim sum isn't easy, but at this Arlington spot it's as easy as ABC. The restaurant also serves a great crab fried rice (there is a live crab tank at the front of the restaurant). Just be sure to bring a lot of friends -- the crab rice serves at least four.

First Chinese BBQ, Haltom City: For Chinese roast pork and duck (nothing like seeing roast ducks hanging in the window), I like First Chinese BBQ.

There are six locations in the area, including Haltom City. Try the barbecue pork soft noodles.

Royal China, Dallas: For noodles made right before your eyes, try Royal China, which also has a great dumpling bar.

Wasabi Sushi, Fort Worth: There are a lot of terrific sushi spots in DFW, but my favorite is Wasabi Sushi on Hulen Street. I have a standing "sushi night" every Wednesday at Wasabi. The sushi is reasonably priced, and there is a nice selection of wines by the glass selected by the owner, a wine enthusiast.
