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:

Tuna sashimi:


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:


More samples!  Thanks Sushi Roku:

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 …
