Yonaka Modern Japanese

When I heard that Yonaka serves modern Japanese dishes, I was curious and had to go as soon as I could!  I was impressed at the beginning before I even started eating.  Our waiter was very informative going about the concept of Yonaka's dishes and remembered in detail the dishes he recommended us to try.  Another thing I liked about Yonaka was complimentary dishes we received... It was very nice of the staff!



Midori Salad- greens, 
asparagus,
 snow
 peas,
 asian 
pear,
 avocado,

 and
cucumber 

This was complimentary and had an interesting dressing drizzled over
the fruits.

Sake Orenji- atlantic 
salmon,
 orange
 supreme, 
yuzu 
tobiko, 

lemon
 oil,
 and maldon. 

Hamachi Kama- grilled
 yellowtail
 collar,
 preserved
 lemon,

and pickled 
vegetables

A complimentary dish!  

Fresh uni (sea urchin)...What a lovely presentation!

I forgot the name of this dish, but it was quite unique and flavorful!

Had to of course get some sushi

Dessert- you can tell the flavors by the
fruits...  I was surprised by the blood
orange sherbert.  I think it was the first
time I had tasted this fruit's flavor, it
wasn't as sour as I thought it would be!

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!
