This Week in Cafe: Genji Restaurant and Karaoke Bar

Good old Jason Kerr. An ordinary night out for our former Stirred & Shaken drinks columnist includes passing out in the bushes and snoring at the dinner table. You have to love this man!

Besides being a fan of fermented beverages, Kerr is into food (in fact, he’s a chef), which is why we asked him to fill in for Robb Walsh by reviewing Genji Restaurant and Karaoke Bar for this week’s paper. Of course, Kerr-style antics ensued. In service of Houston Press readers, the intrepid Kerr tried “Genji’s Special Drink for Men,” made of whiskey and pineapple juice. He also assessed the karaoke machine, which, um, resulted in Mr. Genji himself physically taking away the microphone halfway through his first song. Hey, at least he didn’t get barred!

By the way, Kerr thought the Japanese food served at Genji was phenomenal (when he could remember what he had). To read the full review, pick up the Press this week. – Cathy Matusow
