Umeko: Sushi and Grill

In: 3 stars, Dinner, Japanese, Lunch, Plano

The experience Tonight I was in the mood for Sukiyaki.  I remembered driving by Umeko on the way home from Ferrari’s the other night and thought we’d try that.  I drove home to get Ogre and had to remind him that dinner with his family was more important than work, so we dragged him with [...]

The experience Today we decided we’d eat Asian food.  It was either a Korean place we hadn’t eaten at before or sushi place we hadn’t eaten at before.  Mina picked sushi.  I knew she would.  We went to Avocado California Roll and Sushi.  Before we left, we had to pack up the sushi playset and [...]

Cheese.  That meant starting the day at the Original Pancake House (where service was not that [...]

The experience It was, once again, Mina’s day to attend Young Chef’s Academy in West Plano so we had previously made plans to go to Japon Steak and Sushi right next door based on a reader suggestion.  Grace was busy so I took Mina to school this time and she arrived after class with Benji [...]

About Child's Plate

Childsplate.com chronicles our journey to find the perfect family restaurant. We are looking for restaurants with excellent food and a great attitude towards kids, even the whiny, cranky ones! We will be headed out to a different restaurant every single day to provide ourselves (and you) with some entertainment and good information about DFW area restaurants. We hope you will visit frequently and use our experiences to create some fun dining experiences of your own! Watch out, DFW, the Phipps family is going out to eat!
