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:

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:

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!
