What makes Kyoto different from other sushi restaurants?
It’s right here in my neighborhood, and it’s reasonably priced and incredibly good. You could get sushi from lots of places, but what is there not to like here? And everybody knows your name. Kyoto is one of those places where I feel completely at home. I have lunch and dinner here. Another thing that is different about Kyoto is the owner, Sara Molony. Sara was the first female to own a sushi restaurant in New Orleans and still is.
What is your favorite dish to order here?
The Sara roll, which has spicy shrimp, avocado with crunchy bits and chili sauce on top. And the white fish carpaccio.
Do you get dessert?
I don’t get dessert here. Then again, you could say the hot sake is my dessert. I ordered a small one. I want you to try it; what do you say?
