What's the scoop? Restaurants sign on to offer set multi-course menus for a fixed price. Depending on the price, a specific portion of the proceeds is donated to the Houston Food Bank. Its a good opportunity to try some new restaurants while also helping a charity- let's face it, you were gonna go out for dinner a couple times this month anyways, so the donation is icing on the cake. (Sometimes, there's actual cake!)
For the first weekend of the month, I was craving some Asian food and we decided on Tokyohana- a Japanese/hibachi restaurant. The menu they offered was:
Choice of soup/salad- we chose the onion soup because its kind of the best part
Choice of appetizer: I chose the chicken gyoza, which were quite delicious.
I chose this roll with tuna, avocado, and a wasabi honey sauce.
