Sushi Roku

Last week I attended Sushi Roku's event of previewing some items from their 2013 Summer Break menu before it's public debut on Memorial Day Weekend!  It was truly an honor to be invited :)


At the event, they continuously served samples throughout the evening!  Just when you thought they stopped serving a certain item, it would come back within a few minutes. 

This salmon nigiri was truly a delight, the tomatoes on top complimented the salmon quite well.  I couldn't refuse this sushi every time I was offered it:


This chicken salad Chinois had a light dressing, perfect for summer!:


Kobe Meatballs topped with masago cream sauce.  This meatball was a bit crispy and the sauce added a nice balance to the flavors:


A couple cocktails were served including this Pineapple Fusion.  This drink is made with a 12 year old rum, pineapple, vanilla bean, cinnamon, and brown sugar.  This truly is the best mixed drink I've had in awhile!  The GM, Johnny Seo came by to say hello to us and told us the background about this drink.  Pineapple Fusion was a part of the menu at BOA Steakhouse (it's location at The Forum Shops at Caesar's had closed down).  I'm so glad this drink was revived:

Lovely decor:


Nice view of The Strip, especially at night!


Albacore sashimi with garlic aioli and tiny crispy rice crackers:


Shrimp dim sum in dashi broth:


Shitake mushroom tempura with truffle mayo.  I usually don't eat fried foods, but I had to make an exception for this:


Combinations:


Far East Mule - Thai basil, cucumber, lime juice, simple syrup, Bombay Sapphire, and ginger beer:


This Raspberry Bread Pudding with caramel gelato was to die for!  Bread puddings are one of my favorite desserts and whoever made up this recipe, nailed it!  This raspberry bread pudding was a bit puffy, not soggy like some other bread puddings I've had before:

How nice of them to give us gift bags:

Gelato Messina

At the new Downtown Summerlin  shopping plaza, fantastic shops and restaurants are opening up including a new gelato eatery named  Gelato Messina .  What stands out about this gelato shop is that this is their first US location (they are based in  Australia ) and they make their gelato from scratch using only the finest ingredients.  I guarantee that if you stop by and sample their gelato, your eyes will POP in amazement like mines did!

Hana Hou

During the last week of May, Bronsen and I went to Hawaii (my third trip) for vacation / family time / to eat! From my experience so far from eating Hawaiian local food, it consist an influential mix of traditional Hawaiian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, Polynesian, Portuguese, and American foods. If you're fond of any those ethnic foods like me, its like food heaven in Hawaii! We flew on our favorite airline, Hawaiian Airlines . Bronsen was hoping to get a nice meal than a snack because he always has a big appetite. His wish came true, the complimentary meal came with pasta with vegetables and vinegar dressing: and a big brownie!: Hawaiian Airlines going green: One night I was craving for saimin (ramen) noodles and spam musubi , a popular Hawaiian snack simply made with a block of rice, topped with a slice of spam, and wrapped in dried seaweed. Unfortunately, you can't see the noodles, its covered by the pork. I think there was more meat than the n
