Sekisui Pacific Rim is my favorite restaurant in Memphis for many reasons. I love the glass-encased waterfall, the remix dance anthems, the Kill Bill poster in the women's bathroom, and the sushi bar that serves "Ocean Pyramid" until 1 a.m. on weekends. But despite all these extras, nothing brings me back more often than the restaurant's house salad: hearts of romaine in bite-size pieces, jumbo lump crab meat, and crunchy rice noodles tossed with ginger vinaigrette that is so good you want to lick the bowl for every last drop. The ample serving is enough for a meal, and, at $5.95, you can afford to order a second martini.
