After Whitney’s baby shower on Saturday, Christopher and I decided to knock a couple of places off our “Memphis Eats” list. We started at Edo Japanese Restaurant which is right next door to Jerusalem Market.
Remember when we went to Jerusalem Market? It was yummy! So we had high hopes for the authenticity of Edo as well.
I read several reviews where people critiqued the decor, but Christopher and I actually found it kind of fun. A little run down maybe, but the Asian inspired theme promoted a semi-romantic setting with partitioned booths and low lighting. But one does not go to Edo for the decor…
This is their ginger dressing on a salad that came with the meal we split. I actually enjoyed this, but that’s not necessarily a good sign since I don’t just love ginger. In fact, this is the first time I’ve had a ginger dressing that I liked. Christopher said it was a little bland compared to normal. So if you’re like me and want just a hint of ginger – you’ll enjoy their salad.
The chicken teriyaki, however, did not disappoint. Oh. My. Gracious. Hands down best chicken teriyaki I’ve ever had. The chicken had been slightly charred, but still plenty tender and the sauce was delectable (not at all syrupy like some places). I will go back here just to order this again! So good!
After dinner we headed to Jerry’s Sno Cones for dessert!
To be 100% honest… we didn’t fall in love with Jerry’s. The biggest reason is probably because Christopher doesn’t just love sno cones and the only flavor option they had for me was vanilla. We both enjoyed our sno cones, but wouldn’t go back just the two of us. If we had friends in town who loved sno cones, though, we’d definitely take them. It’s a fun experience.
I’m glad we were able to knock a couple of places off our list. We are adding MORE restaurants to it nearly as fast as we take ones off, haha!
