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!

Maui & Oahu Trip '15

Earlier in July my husband I spent a couple weeks in Hawai'i.  We went to Maui (my first time there) then to O'ahu.  While in Hawai'i I got to see the differences and similarities between Maui and O'ahu.  The one thing both islands had in common was that there was delicious food everywhere!  Here are some of my favorite places we grubbed at and interesting foods we saw:
Jack's Inn When we arrived in Maui, we were craving some local food so we asked a few locals what were good local spots to eat at near the airport.  Locals were recommending Jack's Inn so we went there for breakfast.  It's a small diner with a simple menu:

I chose the Crazy Omelette with meats that the Hawaiian locals love- 2 eggs with Spam, Vienna Sausage, Portuguese sausage, and green onions!  Despite the variety of meats, I'm glad that one meat didn't overpower the other:

Japan Trip '16: Kanazawa and Tokyo

Continuing on from my last post, Japan Trip '16: Osaka, when we left Osaka, we travelled up north to Kanazawa then travelled to Tokyo where we stayed for the remainder of our trip.

We made a stop at Kyoto to do some sightseeing and snacked from bento boxes before we went on our trek:


The Japanese make cute stuff out of everything.  Yes, even food.  Kawaii desu ne:


After a long walk seeing the Arashiyama Bamboo Groove, we saw Taiyaki for the first time!  This fluffy fish-shaped cake is made out pancake or waffle batter and is usually filled with green tea, custard, or red bean paste (from sweetened adzuki beans) as seen here:


Hacchoya was the first restaurant we ate at when we arrived in Kanazawa.  This was a very nice and chic izakaya (Japanese tavern).  When we arrived it was crowded with business people dining and had a smoky atmosphere.  I hate smoke, but it won't stop me from trying new foods!  Other than eating, be sure to try the local sakes that Hacchoya has to offer.  He…

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!
