Pan-Asian restaurant and sushi bar Oishii is regarded by many as one of Dallas' best kept secrets. Located in a sparsely occupied strip mall on Wycliff between Maple and Dallas North Tollway, Oishii is truly an oasis of fine dining in a rather questionable part of town. As we all shared a bottle of J. Lohr Cabernet Sauvignon, my dining companions devoured various not-even-close to-vegan sushi rolls while I delighted in
my beautifully crafted vegetable roll. And although Oishii has several options suitable for vegans, my favorite part of the meal was the Biddhist Delight, a savory dish consisting of tofu, vermicelli, and an assortment of fresh vegetables. So fresh, in fact, that one of my omnivorous companions seemed to enjoy my entrée more than his own. As he so eloquently commented, "Wow! The vegetables actually taste like vegetables," he proceeded to pick from my plate and ignored his own. I must admit his reaction made me feel as if I had won a small battle for all vegans.
Try Oishii on Tuesday nights for $1 sushi rolls or Wednesday nights for half-priced bottles of wine.
