Blade photographer Katie Rausch and I have a new place we like to stop at for lunch when we're working on stories near Sylvania: Kyoto Ka. It's a sushi bar at heart, but they also serve salads (avocado, house, seaweed --- the list is endless), soup and entrees like teriyaki chicken.
- Miso vegetable soup (includes mushroom, spinach, green onion, and carrot). Here it is:
- The vegetable udon, which is fresh vegetable soup with lots of noodles.
- I'm also a huge fan of the plum roll, which is a vegetarian roll with cucumber and plum. It's actually a weird fusion of flavor -- it seems like eating vegetables and dessert at the same time, since the plum sauce adds a sweet kick.
Katie ordered the lunch special bento box, which makes it cheaper to try a lot of different things at Kyoto Ka. For the bento box, you get salad and soup, in addition to your sushi choice and your entree choice. Lunch time there is less expensive than dinner, and there are separate menus.
Service always seems to be great, making it a good place for a business lunch probably.
Kyoto Ka is located at 6801 W. Central Ave. Visit www.kyotoka.com for more information and for hours.
