A new sushi restaurant is coming to Legacy Hall, the food hall in Plano: Hōru Sushi will open its first location at 7800 Windrose Ave. According to a release, it'll open in September with new refreshing flavors and textures.
Founder of Hōru Sushi is Chin Liang, who has 20-plus years of experience behind the sushi counter at restaurants such as KÄI in Legacy West, Lounge 31, and Steel Restaurant & Lounge.
Liang says he's always been drawn to the energy of sushi bars, stating, "there's something electric about the connection between a sushi chef and their customers that inspired me to open my first sushi concept with a focus on that interpersonal interaction."
Focusing on freshness, Liang will keep the sashimi menu simple with three types of fish available daily, plus daily specials based on seasonal availability from Tsukiji Market in Tokyo, Japan.
Mainstay starters will include:
- Miso soup
- Spicy edamame
- Shishito peppers
- Hamachi and yucca chips
Sushi highlights include an Ahi Tuna Tower with spicy tuna, crab, avocado, sushi rice, tobiko, shredded nori, wonton chips, and wasabi aioli; Truffle Salmon roll featuring soy paper, salmon, truffle oil, avocado, tempura puffs, spicy mango, and eel sauce; and the Legacy Hall roll, featuring tempura bacon, crab, avocado, tuna, salmon, yellowtail, masago, topped with sliced lemon and scallions.
Food Hall Co. VP Kulsoom Klavon says they've wanted to bring a sushi concept to Legacy Hall for some time.
"We have been waiting for the perfect partner to complement our other restaurant offerings," Klavon says. "Chin Liang’s experience and creative vision for Hōru Sushi makes us confident that we have found the best possible concept to wow our guests and fill a much-desired culinary niche."
