If you have been feeling a bit in a rut when it comes to dining out, have I got some great news for you.  Kingwood is the happening place for new restaurants, and I have three (yes, three!) to tell you about.

Yama S Fusion Sushi recently opened their doors at the front of Kingwood, and I’ve been hearing some great things about them.  Now I’m not a huge seafood fan, but I do enjoy some sushi and I really enjoy hibachi-style dishes.  And I’m told that Chef Yama is hard to miss with his red hair!   The menu is quite extensive and the prices are reasonable. 

If you prefer tacos over sushi, then you may have heard that Torchy’s Tacos is coming to Kingwood later this spring!  They are building their latest restaurant in the new H-E-B plaza at the intersection of West Lake Houston Parkway and Kingwood Drive.  What started out as a food trailer in 2006 has grown to over 30 restaurants in Texas, Colorado and Oklahoma.  They offer all kinds of tacos, including vegetarian and breakfast options and even a taco of the month.  My buyer’s agent, Amanda, says that the tacos are “amazing” and that Torchy’s has a quite a fan following.

Now that you have had breakfast, lunch or dinner, you might need some dessert.  SUB ZERO Ice Cream and Yogurt is also making its home at the same H-E-B plaza.  If you have watched any of the network cooking shows, you have probably seen someone making ice cream using liquid nitrogen.  At Sub Zero, your ice cream is “made to order” right in front of you.  Pick a flavor and add-ins, and watch as the liquid nitrogen does its magic and turns the cream into a creamy, cold treat. 

There are several other new restaurants in the area as well, and more planned.  If you have one that you think I would enjoy, let me know and I’ll check it out!
