Roka Akor Steak, Seafood & Sushi, a nationally recognized Japanese sushi and steak concept, has opened its first location in Texas right here in Houston’s River Oaks District.
Roka Akor offers contemporary Robata Japanese cuisine, prepared on a twelve-foot robata grill that uses mesquite charcoal and almond wood with flames that can raise temperatures up to 1,900 degrees. ROKA is derived from two words: RO and KA. The meaning of the first word is hearth, a gathering place where people socialize and take in the ambience; the latter stands for a burning fire and projecting energy. This is why Roka Akor’s design features a centrally located robata grill that provides the heart of the visual experience, surrounded by rich wood décor and sleek lighting.
Roka Akor’s menu changes seasonally, including a rotating selection of prime-cut steaks, seafood, and vegetables with Japanese-inspired marinades and sauces, along with sushi and sashimi.
Monday to Friday enjoy a 2-course lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for just $24, or come with friends for happy hour deals daily.
