Sai’s menu is tossed in the whimsical with sprinkles of the traditional for good measure. Items served at Sai are the foodchild of Chef Eddy. Somewhere smack dab between upscale and affordable, Eddy has left his mark on this Colleyville eatery, creating dishes that make you ask, “What’s that seasoning in there?” It’s a question that you might ask while…
