Top pick: If you don’t save room for a bowl of black sesame mousse for dessert, then you’ll just have to go back. It’s this critic’s favorite dessert in Texas, period.
The downside: If you’ve been to Tei-An before, skip the basic tasting menu, a greatest-hits collection of menu staples, and spend more cash on a seasonal menu of Sakurai’s latest inventions.
Fun fact: This isn’t just a local favorite. Tei-An has a glittering reputation over in Japan, too. By the way, don’t miss the most luxurious bathrooms of any restaurant in Dallas.
