New Fort Worth Restaurant Makes Sushi Simple
Temaki on Magnolia Avenue
I just found a pocket-sized sushi restaurant that leaves behind all the pretentiousness and complexity of ordering and eating sushi.
Don't get me wrong, sometimes I'm in the mood for the highfalutin experience. But if I ever want sushi simple, affordable and fast, I'm going to Temaki on Magnolia.
That’s the owner’s intention. You don’t have to be sophisticated to get this place. There are five simple panels that hang over the cash register — sides ($3), classics ($5), temaki ($5), nigiri/sashimi ($5) and signatures ($9).
The temaki is my new favorite healthy thing to eat. It is a hand roll that reminds me of a Japanese soft taco-like treat. Brown rice, your fresh raw fish of choice and cucumbers are loosely rolled in this light seaweed thingy. Those of you who haven’t figured out chopsticks can pick this up with your hands.
The most brilliant part of this restaurant is that I had a complimentary appetizer of edamame, one brown rice California roll and the Temaki hand roll for $10.83. There wasn’t even a line on the receipt for a tip nor a tip jar.
I got my own water and enjoyed my meal with no interruptions from a server. And I didn’t have to wait for a check because I paid at the cash register. You must try it!
It's been a while. I've missed you all. Since this blog started five years ago to tell you about new and adventurous things to do in and around Fort Worth, I am here to help you with some ideas in the wild outdoors of the DFW backcountry just in time for planning your Spring Break. You don't have to travel far and empty your bank account to have an exhilarating time this Spring Break. So I will do a little series on this blog of some great ideas. And be looking for my march issue cover story in Fort Worth, TX magazine that will have you exploring areas you never thought existed in our hometown. You just thought you had to go to Utah or Colorado to enjoy the great outdoors. And don't forget to click the links I've embedded into this post for more information.

UPDATE: In just a few hours the children not only raised $2,000 in money and gift cards for evacuees temporarily (or permanently) relocated in Fort Worth and Dallas, but also received two suburbans full of unused clothing, socks and underwear, diapers, wipes, baby bottles, formula, toys, pet treats and pet toys. We traded the donations for homemade bread and muffins, breakfast tacos, lemonade and fresh hot coffee. The community came together for this one. A special thanks to everyone who supported these children's efforts to help other children. Be looking for a Part II soon as more people come to DFW from the Texas Coast with more needs!
I watched my parents go through this when Katrina hit their home in New Orleans. They were displaced for nearly six months until they decided to never go back. Most of their friends never returned either. It took them 11 years to sell their home down there, having to pay two mortgages, because people didn't want to experience Katrina eve…
I pulled my car into the Kimbell Art Museum's sparkling monochromatic underground parking garage. The museum's Renzo Piano Pavilion opened to members this morning, and after months of research I'm afire.
Talk about whether this building will
complicate or take away from the original Kimbell Art Museum designed by Kahn have swirled internationally for years—whether the green
space that once represented silence will be ruined, whether the jewel box masterpiece
actually needed to grow, and why one should augment something that is
considered a perfect work of architecture. I grew up close to this museum and was distraught when they erected the ugly tarp and dug into the sacred lawn I once sat by myself and sketched the allée elms or read philosophy texts.
After three years of digging the tarp is gone, and much of the green space intact. I jump into the transparent,
glass elevator, float onto the lawn facing the Kahn building, exit outside, turn left and enter the pavilion.
