Cafe Kubo's Sushi
Houston, TX 77036
Houston Press's Description
One of the hippest and yet most laid-back places to spend an evening in Chinatown is at Cafe Kubo's, the younger and far more mod sister of the staid Kubo's in Rice Village. Instead of focusing on sushi, however, Cafe Kubo's offers a much more traditional Japanese fast-food menu of dishes like curried pork cutlets over rice, bento boxes of fried chicken and bowls of tonkatsu ramen that complement its casual vibe. Happy hour runs every day of the week here, and the food and drink specials make it a huge draw in the evenings.
Tips from foursquare
Tokyo Shoyu Ramen is pretty good here, but not enough meat.If there's a lot of people it takes a really long time for the food to come out
Super-cute staff. <3
Best ramen ever.
After 5pm $1.75 Japanese beer and $1.25 bud light. Pork cutlet curry is awesome.
Domestics and imports are both $1.99 during happy hour :)
