Plano’s massive food hall expands tomorrow with the arrival of a sushi spot that takes freshness seriously.
The sashimi menu at Hōru Sushi, scheduled to open on Friday, September 27, relies on just three types of fish available daily and symbolizes the first restaurant venture for respected chef Chin Liang.
Its home in Legacy Hall (7800 Windrose Avenue) is already packed with 20 vendors slinging cuisines from around the world, including breweries, bars, and an outdoor entertainment venue across three levels and 55,000 square feet.
Liang, who’s amassed over 20 years of experience behind sushi counters, most recently helmed the knife station at KÄI in Legacy West. He also honed his talent at Lounge 31 and Steel Restaurant & Lounge.
“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,” says Liang, in a statement.
Core offerings call for an ahi tuna tower (spicy tuna, crab, avocado, sushi rice, tobiko, shredded nori, wonton chips, and wasabi aioli) and Legacy Hall (tempura bacon, crab, avocado, tuna, salmon, yellowtail, masago, topped with sliced lemon and scallions).
The truffle salmon roll is built with soy paper, fresh salmon, truffle oil, avocado, tempura puffs, spicy mango, and eel sauce. Underwater specials, depending on seasonal availability, will be sourced from the famed Tsukiji Market in Tokyo, Japan.
To warm up diners’ palates, there’s miso soup, spicy edamame, shishito peppers, and hamachi and yucca chips.
