Little Katana on Travis Street is an inventive offshoot of the tiny sushi bar in the Galleria expanded to a full kitchen that prepares dishes with Japanese, Korean and Thai influences. In addition to fresh and relatively inexpensive sushi, Little Katana offers a variety of steaks and other meats cooked on a custom-engineered grill to tame the intense heat generated from the imported Korean oak charcoal the kitchen uses. Results can be mixed. Steaks can be rich and juicy, or leathery and parched. Ahi Tower, a silo of tuna, fake crab and avocado layers, is delicious. So is the mango cheesecake, served as a mess in a sundae glass. Watch the service though.
