The way of the Samurai is to prepare simple but solid sushi that will have you roll back for more.


Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
Never doubt the power of one bad meal. I visited Samurai (1630 NW 23rd St.) when it opened a few years ago and did not feel the need to return. The sushi was not good. I remember the tempura batter being sharp. Like, it hurt my mouth to eat.

Golden god

Take your time picking a menu item you like — there’s plenty to choose from.


Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
Golden Phoenix, 2728 N. Classen Blvd., has a menu that requires time, patience and a spirit of adventure. Not that you have to try Top Snail with Coconut Juice ($8.95), but it’s there if you want to.

Greasy spoon greatness

Sometimes a diner is just a diner. A good ol’ hole-in-the-wall can still serve up perfect breakfasts as well as burgers.


Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
We have fooled ourselves, we foodie hipsters. We have bought into this idea that every hole-in-the-wall is a gem merely waiting for us to polish it. And then we can shine it in the eyes of our foodie friends and say, “Oh, you haven’t been there? I’m not surprised.”
