Umiya

Umiya (formerly known as Kaizen) on Flamingo Rd & Arville St has quite an interesting AYCE sushi menu.  Other than sushi and seafood items, an array of Japanese foods are featured like Monkey Brain. I wasn't adventurous enough to eat Monkey Brain, I don't know if I ever will!

Another great thing about Umiya is when you are an AYCE sushi patron, you have the choice of having all you can drink alcohol for just $10 more!  There's a set menu for that also.  You can choose certain sakes, wines, and beers... What a deal!!

Our sushi chef, Eric, was nice to give my friend
and I custom rolls based off our favorite fishes.
This was my hamachi special roll :)
This roll came with red onions, tobiko (flying fish
roe), shrimp tempura, green onions, and a special
sauce...  Such a wonderful combo!

grilled ahi

Proof!

Left- Lychee Saketini (a chilled cocktail that
uses sake, simple syrups, spirits, liqueurs, etc.

Right- Japanese Lasagna, this baked roll was
quite cream cheesy and had this nice sauce
on top!

This is one of my favorite AYCE sushi joints in Las Vegas!  Umiya has awesome food and service.  I'll definitely be visiting this place often!

***Edit: As of 1/24/13, All You Can Drink is no longer available. It is replaced by the new special, 'Buy 2 Get 1 Free drinks'. This includes Beer, Sake (House & Premium), and Soju.

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…

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:

Jack's Inn 312 Alamaha St Kahului, HI 96732 (808) 877-3610


Miso Phat Sushi Right near our hotel was Miso Ph…

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!
