For a good meal in North Platte, you've gotta get away from the expressway. Tempura is deep within North Platte, and it's worth the little drive past the deserted downtown to this strip mall eatery. Both Chinese and Japanese fare grace the menu, and I was pleasantly surprised by a special changing menu of special rolls with combinations that were new to me.
The service was quick and attentive, with a gold star for taking care of the kids with trainer chopsticks and special attention.
The prices might be a little high for the quality, but this is Nowhere, Nebraska, so I'm happy to oblige the premium for something good.
Whenever I'm crossing the country, it seems I hit North Platte around meal time. And now, I don't have to worry about that anymore!
