Cafe de Japon

We recently hit up Cafe de Japon a few hours ago.  After eating some of the Japanese comfort foods, I was surprised that there were no other customers around... This place should be bumpin during the weekends!  

On the left I tried the Agedashi Tofu from the Daily Specials Menu.  It is hot silken firm tofu, cut into cubes, lightly dusted with potato starch or cornstarch and then deep fried until golden brown.  I've had this dish countless of times at other places, and this was the first time the tofu stood out from the others I've had.  The toppings and the sauce that accompanied the tofu was quite delightful.  

To the right is Omu Rice- It is chicken fried rice covered with egg and homemade tomato sauce on top. Their homemade tomato sauce was bold, which I enjoyed because to me it paired well with the fried rice and egg.


 I love their philosophy of Family, Health and Deliciousness.  According to their website, they only use the freshest materials from their everyday purchases.  I could definitely tell their foods were fresh with every bite!

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 …

Herbs & Rye

After driving pass by Herbs & Rye for many years I finally went in to see what all the hype was about this place.  They serve classic cocktails that were popular during the Prohibition Era and before that time like the Gothic Age (unknown-1865) and Golden Age (1865-1900):

Here's an example of of some of the drinks:

I loved all the drinks they made, wasn't disappointed with any of them:


Herbs & Rye also serves Italian food like flatbreads, pasta, and  they're known for the steaks they cook, I'll try some next time!  I only had the appetite to drink:

I really enjoyed my time here especially the atmosphere of a "speakeasy feel".  They get busy during the weekends so if you plan to dine in, make a reservation!
