Lunch: 11:45 am

Sekisui

—Best Japanese Winner—

To suppress the gnarly growl in my stomach, I headed out Poplar to my favorite sushi spot for lunch. Traditionally, I favor an assortment including the Arctic roll, the Redbird roll, and a fried Volcano roll with extra eel sauce; any combination of crab, avocado, smoked salmon, and shrimp is always a good choice. But this particular day I wanted something a bit more substantial. It was a toss-up between the Teriyaki Burger, with spicy Japanese fries, or one of Sekisui’s savory noodle bowls. It was a given that I’d start with pork dumplings, and with that in mind, I was feelin’ the Pacific Rim Noodles, the perfect pairing of spicy and tangy, filled with a few of my favorite things — shrimp, scallops, mussels, and crawfish mixed in with seafood broth and of course, noodles. What a perfect opportunity to test my chopstick skills; you never know when they will come in handy. And thankfully, Sekisui locations are literally all over town, seven in the Memphis area, in case I care to swing back by later. And I just might.   — Anna Cox
