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:

Kabuto

Eating at Kabuto was a wonderful dining and learning experience for my fiance and I.  If you are truly a sushi/Japanese food enthusiast and am willing to pay $$$ for what you get, you must come to Kabuto!

We each ordered some à la carte items and the Nigiri Omakase, which includes an appetizer, ten pieces of sushi nigiri, hand roll, and dessert.  Our chef was the general manager, he's such a knowledgeable man!  He told us about the distinctive features of each fish, what his job entails, and funny stories.  I'm so glad he was our chef!

Since we sat at the bar, we were up close to see how our sushi chef worked.  He wasn't in a rush and we got to see the artistic side of how sushi is made. This made me appreciate my experience at Kabuto much more:


















Last note: Finding this place was also a learning experience for us, you may get aggravated looking for it in the strip mall... Kabuto is there! AND it's important to make a reservation before coming in because Kabuto is a very …

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!

Stockholm Trip '17

Over a month ago, my husband and I embarked on our first trip to Europe!!! We were there for a couple weeks and spent our time exploring the capital cities of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.  The two things I found most captivating was the art, especially the architecture, and the food!  Our trip started in Oslo, Norway and Copenhagen, Denmark (check out the links at the end of the post for more details) and ended our Euro trip in Stockholm, Sweden:

AB Café Never in my whole life did I eat pastries and drink coffee every morning until I arrived in Europe! A lot of pastries I had were hearty which left me wanting to have at least one daily.  In the neighborhood near where we were staying at was AB Café.  This is a small, cozy cafe where you can have a small bite to eat and drink before you start your day.  Pictured below is their Key Lime Sandwich, latte, and a bullar (sweet bun).  It was a nice fika!
