Today, I was feeling happy hour-ish, but also Sushi-ish. Hmm I thought, where can I go with the pefect combination ? DORAKU on Lincoln Road of course ! http://dorakusushi.com/ Doraku has been a staple on “the road” for over a decade. It’s location on the far western end has endeared it to us locals. We yearn for a place on the beach where people don’t have cameras around their necks or have on neon T-Shirts. Their happy hour runs 7 days a week. That’s right..Saturdays & Sundays too between 5 and 7pm. They have a special happy hour food and drink menu that is priced perfectly for LOCALS, NOT TOURISTS. I sampled some delicious shrimp & basil tempura, salmon carpaccio and also the philly roll which has salmon and cream cheese. I was pleasantly surprised at how yummy their bok choy w/garlic turned out. All were uber fresh and uber good. Service was excellent. We ended our happy hour with some sake. Although a busy spot no one hurries you and there is no chaos. After work or play, this is the spot.Their dark yet fun asian inspired interior decor went well with the cuisine. Buddha heads abound everywhere. Besides having a formal restaurant table area, they also have a outstanding sushi bar in the rear of the restaurant where you can witness their top notch sushi masters create some creative dishes. As we sipped on our delicious glasses of white Sangria and a watermelon lychee martini cocktail we spoke with one of their managers named JC, who told us of their new venture in the extension of Dadeland mall. It’s called Aoki Teppanyaki. http://www.simon.com/mall/dadeland-mall/stores/aoki-teppanyaki I will be sure to check it out. If I were you, I would check out Doraku happy hour. Now.
