Sushi in Houston

I'm a California girl in Houston for business for the next two weeks (having already been here for four). I'm all about great Tex-Mex, but I'm dying for good sushi. I'm staying at the University of Houston, but wouldn't mind traveling elsewhere in the city. What would you recommend?

Vietnamese rice in a hot pot

I recently moved back to L.A. from St. Louis, where - if you can believe it - there was phenomenal Vietnamese food. My favorite dish from my favorite restauraunt was rice in a hot pot - a mix of cooked rice, brown sauce, vegetables and some kind of protein, all baked in a metal pot so that the bottom and sides got crispy. I would kill to find it here in Los Angeles - has anyone seen or had anything similar?
