Money Cat, Houston, TX

I must start by highlighting the Money Cat as a truly memorable Japanese dining experience. The anticipation for its opening in 2022 was immense, and I was among the first to savor its innovative fusion of tempura, sushi, and hot-cold dishes, elegantly presented in a fine-dining atmosphere with a minimalist, neutral decor featuring wooden interiors, emerald tiling, and black marble floors.

For food enthusiasts, the chef's table is a must, allowing you to observe meal preparation while dining. The menu is a delightful array, making it challenging to pick a favorite. However, the Sake Ringo, crafted with fresh salmon, apple-fennel compote, and white ponzu, stands out for its freshness and flavors.

This establishment excels in creativity and unique gastronomy, evident in dishes like Chilean seabass cured in miso with green curry and the katsu sando with Japanese tartare sauce and tamari caramel on house milk bread.

Remarkably, this culinary gem is surprisingly affordable. Prices are reasonable, with the recommended salmon dish at $17.00, Wagyu skewers at $18.00, and spicy tuna at just $12.00. While some dishes, like lobster at $52.00, come at a higher cost, the quality justifies the expense.

    From the very moment you step through the door, the experience is nothing short of incredible. The drinks not only taste delightful but are also served promptly. I celebrated my birthday at this establishment and perhaps went a tad overboard with my orders, but I can confidently say it was well worth it. I highly recommend exploring their seasonal menu – the uni was impeccably fresh, and the belly flight was an absolute delight. Rest assured, I will be returning for another visit!

    What an enchanting dining experience we had! Ramil, our attentive server, made our first visit truly memorable by guiding us through both the regular and secret menu offerings. Without a doubt, the highlight of our evening was the exquisite bluefin flight – the O toro simply melted in our mouths! To kickstart our meal, we indulged in the heavenly honey vanilla milk buns. We couldn’t resist exploring the salmon flight to savor every delightful variety, with the ocean trout offering a sweeter contrast and the Ora King salmon displaying its exceptional richness.

    Ramil surprised us with a fresh off-menu creation, the Toro & Salmon makimono, and it exceeded our expectations. The cocktails were not only potent but also bursting with delightful flavors. We savored “The Trinity” and “Not Cha Matcha” cocktails, both equally satisfying.

    Without a doubt, I’m already planning my return visit to sample their Kakigori dessert and indulge in their hot tastings. This dining experience was a true culinary adventure that I can’t wait to relive!
