With over twenty years as a “Sushi Man” and two previous restaurants (Kaneyama and Sushi King) under his belt, finally Keeper Lin’s bringing his inventive cuisine to Fort Bend. Sushi-lovers and food aficionados like Chef Frederic Perrier of Aura are gathering at Keeper’s Japanese Restaurant and Bar to enjoy mouth-watering, fresh food in a welcoming atmosphere perfect for lunch or dinner anytime!
What makes Keeper’s a restaurant where chefs love to eat? Quality! Keeper uses only Tamaki Gold rice, the number one best-selling rice in Japan and the freshest fish he personally chooses daily at the fish market. He says, “In the early morning I go out to choose the best fish, but if something like sea urchin comes in later, they’ll give me a call. I’ve made a trip to the fish company at midnight, just to be sure I got the freshest seafood. For quality, you can’t just place an order over the phone…you have to inspect it yourself!”
Start your meal with Dobin Mushi, a soup that melts away stress while whetting your appetite. Drink the fragrant broth out of the little cup, then open the dobin (like a little teapot) and eat the sweet morsels of Sashimi-grade red snapper, fresh clam, shrimp, fishcake, chicken, shitaki mushroom and a gingko nut…good for the memory.
Want a roll to remember? You can’t be Texan without trying the Cowboy: tuna or salmon and avocado inside topped with blackened beef, four colors of tobiko (flying fish roe in ruby, black, wasabi, and golden yuzu) and cowboy sauce with a serious kick! For something a little sweeter, pick the Skydiver: soft-shell crab and cucumber inside, topped with unagi, avocado, sesame, and eel sauce.
Why not cool down with a Blood Orange Martini or Watermelon Mojito from Keeper’s amazing mixologist, Tia? Then heat things up again with beef or tuna Hobayaki topped with miso-sesame paste with cashew nuts and onions and served on a hot volcanic stone…deliciously dramatic! Keeper says, “We’d like to invite you to our Happy Hour all day everyday. We are adding more options than before with appetizers, hand rolls and even more sushi to choose from! We’ll also offer drink specials everyday from 4-7, 9-close, and all day Saturday and Sunday!”
Enter Keeper’s Japanese Restaurant and Bar and the smiling hostess, the sushi chefs, and the servers will greet you with the Japanese welcome, “Irashaimase!” You’ll find the perfect meal, whether you prefer sushi, sashimi, teriyaki, tempura, noodles or a selection in the Bento Box lunch sampler. Keeper says, “My chefs Freddie and Juan and I all understand and passionately respect Japanese culture. We love living and working in Fort Bend…and our Japanese spirit comes through in the food we make and serve to you.”
