Kabuki Japanese Restaurant

My first visit to Kabuki Japanese Restaurant in Town Square was quite a treat! When I entered the restaurant, I was impressed with the elegant mix of ancient Japanese art with modern art:


We were given edamame (boiled green soybeans) while we waited for our foods:


My fiancé and I were there during Reverse Happy Hour (starts 9pm until close on weekdays) so we could eat as much food as we can! When you order off the Reverse Happy Hour Menu, you get the 2nd item (must cost equal or less than the 1st item) for only $1, what an awesome deal!

Our first appetizer was Mixed Tempura which consisted of lightly battered shrimp and vegetables:


Our second appetizer were Calamari Rings. It wasn't too greasy and was lightly flavored, just the way I like it! The dark sauce tasted like sweet onion and the other tasted like mustard mixed with horseradish. I'm glad they gave us a generous serving of calamari:


The first nigiri sushi item I always order at any Japanese restaurant is Yellowtail (Hamachi)! I ordered four pieces of my favorites along with two Jumbo Scallops (Kaibashira) wrapped in nori. The fish and shellfish was fresh and cut well:


We then ordered two sets of regular rolls. The one on the right is Spicy Tuna Roll and to the left is the B.S.C.R. (Baked Scallop on California Roll). I liked the tinge of spiciness on the Spicy Tuna Roll had and also liked how the baked scallop complimented the California Roll.:


I later ordered a few of the chef recommended items off the regular menu. First one I got was the specialty roll, Lotus On Fire. It consist of spicy tuna, lotus root (fried), and jalapeño on top of a California Roll. When I bit into the sushi, I enjoyed the crunch of the root, it was so crispy!:


The other specialty roll I ordered was the Kabuki Roll. Its a spicy crunch roll topped with various fish. This sushi was so presentable, I didn't want to eat it right away!:


The last item I ordered was Cha Soba. Its basically chilled green tea soba. Soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour and is added with green tea leaves or powder:


This was the dipping sauce and garnishes (seaweed, green onion, and wasabi) that came with the Cha Soba:


I recommend going to Kabuki for any special occasion or just to chill and relax. You'll get your money's worth of eating fine, quality Japanese food!

Fat Boy

On my cheat day I ate at Fat Boy located on 4425 Stewart St Suite 107 (corner of Stewart St & Lamb Blvd).  It's a small fast food joint that serves hamburgers, pizzas, burritos, salads, smoothies (their syrups are homemade), milkshakes, and Mexican food:

Chencho Fries- a Fat Boy favorite!  These fries are topped with salsa verde, grilled onions, chopped chicken, and melted cheese:

Pastrami Boyger- beef patty topped with pastrami, mustard, grilled onions, pickles and mayo.  If you need a serious protein fix, this "boyger" is for you:

Fat Boy makes their meat patties daily and are never frozen.  Toppings and vegetables are prepared as needed, and buns are delivered to the restaurant fresh daily.  If you're feeling gluttonous, check out Fat Boy!

Flock & Fowl

If you're in the mood to eat a chicken dish, I highly recommend checking out Flock & Fowl.  This restaurant specializes in making Hainanese Chicken Rice.  It's a simple dish consisting of poached organic, free range chicken with marinated cucumbers and preserved mustard greens as seen in the photo below.  You may dip the chicken in ginger scallion sauce, house made sambal (chile), and house made soy sauce for more flavor/kick (not pictured).  Also, the sides to choose from are organic egg, Chinese sausage (lap cheung), chicken broth, or more chicken rice:

On the day we dined there, the Chicken & Poached Egg Congee was the special dish of the day.  Congeeis a rice porridge that's common throughout Asian countries.  It can be eaten plain, but usually comes with garnishes and sides:



We couldn't resist trying their steamed buns:

After I ate, I felt like I finished a home cooked meal, which is a rare feeling for me when eating at any restaurant.  Keep in mind this …
