Pass the yakitori, please "CHICKEN KEEL BONE ON A SKEWER?" My dining companion read aloud, looking concerned. We were perusing the menu at Daiji's Izakaya, a new Japanese restaurant downtown. Modeled after the popular izakaya, the Japanese version of a pub, Daiji's serves tapas-style dishes. The menu is traditional Japanese izakaya food. Both hot and cold dishes are available, along with their signature style of dish, yakitori — skewered and charcoal grilled morsels. As with any tapas-style restaurant, it's more fun to visit with a group so you can try a variety of dishes. We ordered three dishes to get us started. The excellent seaweed salad ($5) arrived first. A cool, crunchy mixture of kaisou seaweed tossed with sesame seeds, citrus dressing and a hint of red pepper, this is an excellent dish on a warm day. The agedashi tofti ($3.50) sounded interesting, but wasn't quite what we expected. Two large cubes of fried tofu are served in a sweet, gingery broth. The tofu is topped with bonito flake, or finely flaked dried fish. It wasn't to my taste, but it's a Japanese favorite. From the yakitori menu, we ordered the tsukune ($4), or fresh ground chicken meatballs. Tender, smoky and topped with a sweet yakitori sauce, they were excellent, although they didn't arrive until the end of our meal. If you're a sake fan, Daiji's offers a well thought out selection. A nice variety of beer and wine is also available. BE CHOOSY ABOUT WHAT YOU ORDER: we found some dishes to be overpriced. At $9 for two shrimp and a couple of vegetables, the tempura seemed expensive. Ditto the scallops ($5), which included only one skewer with three scallop halves. Our group was divided on the value of the devine yakitori beef tenderloin ($9). On the other hand, there are some good value items on the menu. The pork katsu ($3.50), a battered and fried pork cutlet, is a deal. The goyza pan fried pork dumplings ($4.50) served with an addictively tan chili sauce were also reasonably priced. Although there's no sushi bar. a sashimi plate ($9) is available, including three slices each of high quality salmon, tuna, and squid. Also worth a try - - the yakitori-grilled bacon wrapped enoki mushrooms ($5). More adventurous dishes are available for the bold diner The chicken liver ($3) is sue- ciUent and smoky Or try the quail eggs ($3), boiled just enough to solidify the yolk slightly then skewered and grilled for a moment over charcoal. They're a silky, smoky treat. And then there are those keel bones ($3), or the breast bone of a chicken. We just had to try them. They come four to a skewer and are grilled over charcoal. The verdict? Well, they're bones. Desserts are limited, but try the tempura banana with ice cream ($3.50). At lunch time the restaurant is a different place. Gone is the thumping techno/elec- tronica that seems out of place. Instead, jazz provides a more relaxing mood. The menu is simpler as well, with noodle bowls, rice bowls and bento boxes. The oyakodon ($7) rice bowl is a simple lunch. White and dark meat chicken is cooked with egg and onion on a griddle, then placed pancake-style atop a bowl of rice. The accompanying miso soup is rich without being heavy Daiji's Izakaya brings an interesting dining concept to Houston. Offering traditional Japanese small dishes in a pub setting, it's the perfect spot to meet friends after work, catch a quick lunch or linger over dinner. With such a broad menu, you can always try something new like those unforgettable keel bones. s Daijis Izakaya (J 1201 Caroline " 713-651-3030 www.daijis.com % Food: •inn Service: www Value: www Scene: W w m ¥ = Stay home and eat cereal 1WIW = Well, if you really must IW IW IW = Fine for all but the finicky •www*W=Worthmorethana 20-minute drive IW IW IW IW IW =As good as you'll find in this city
