I recently drank KAPPA Pisco for the first time! Here's a little background on this drink: KAPPA Pisco is a very clear drink! ...
Umiya (formerly known as Kaizen) on Flamingo Rd & Arville St has quite an interesting AYCE sushi menu. Other than sushi and seafood i...
Another great thing about Umiya is when you are an AYCE sushi patron, you have the choice of having all you can drink alcohol for just $10 more! There's a set menu for that also. You can choose certain sakes, wines, and beers... What a deal!!
|Our sushi chef, Eric, was nice to give my friend|
and I custom rolls based off our favorite fishes.
This was my hamachi special roll :)
This roll came with red onions, tobiko (flying fish
roe), shrimp tempura, green onions, and a special
sauce... Such a wonderful combo!
|Jordan's white tuna special roll thats garnished|
with a lot of fried garlic!
|A lovely picture of our sushi chef,|
he was so funny!
|Eric creating a special roll that is|
not included in the AYCE menu :o
|A daily special- I think this was |
|Left- Lychee Saketini (a chilled cocktail that |
uses sake, simple syrups, spirits, liqueurs, etc.
Right- Japanese Lasagna, this baked roll was
quite cream cheesy and had this nice sauce
|Banana Split with vanilla ice cream|
This past December I went to Oahu to get married! Since planning for my wedding was my priority, I didn't really plan to eat anywhere...
|My uncle had the Fried Chicken & Waffle. This picture|
makes the food smaller than it seems, I was impressed by
the portion size, I didn't know pieces of chicken could be
that big (all thanks to genetic modification)!
|My meal, the Mini Breakfast Special was smaller compared |
to everyone else's. For this special you get to choose 1) how
you want your eggs cooked 2) choose pancakes, toast, fries
or rice and 3) choose bacon, link sausage, Spam, or
Overall this was a nice family restaurant to eat at. I wish Pancakes & Waffles was also here in Las Vegas!
|Top- Snickerdoodle Cupcake w/ Cinnamon Cream Cheese|
Frosting, Lilikoi Cupcake w/ Cream Cheese Frosting (my
personal favorite) Bottom- I forgot the left one! The right
is Southern Red Velvet Cupcake w/ Cream Cheese Frosting
|I had a Grilled Ahi (tuna) plate that came with tartar sauce, |
rice, and mac salad. There was a big, fresh chunk of
tuna that came with the plate. I tried to finish it all, but I just gave the rest to my husband.
|My cousin had the Kalbi plate. You can tell this was slabbed |
with a lot of marinade!
|I thought this was cute and funny, a mother hen|
leaving L&L Barbeque with her chicks!
Now here's the main event, my wedding!
|A three tier Tiffany Blue cake with white sugar shells and|
flowers to feed about 80 people from Aloha Cakery. Me and my
husband chose the flavors (Chocolate Kahlua Fudge,
Strawberry, and Vanilla) and fillings (guava and lilikoi) for each tier. It
was great doing business with the owner, Kathy!
Along with its lovely look, my cake was so good that
my guests demolished the cake :D
|A pūpū (appetizer) platter consisting of spicy edamame,|
spicy chicken wings, cream puffs, cake pops, fruits, cheese,
chips with salsa, and cupcakes!
|Time to eat!|
|It wasn't hard for me to choose a caterer. I really wanted to|
eat food from Marujyu Market again! I ordered mostly the same
foods that I ate in 2009. I also ordered Pulehu Steak, Chicken Adobo, and
Basa Fish (it's sauce was incredible!). Everything tasted great! I'm so glad I
was able to eat their food again.
|What a great breakfast!|
|We of course had to eat at Zippy's - only in Hawaii!|
|My friend had a big bowl of Loco Moco- rice with meat|
patties, gravy, and fried egg on top.
|The Filet Mignon with Mushroom Gravy sounded really good on the menu,|
so I had to get it! It was worth the $18. The Filet Mignon was quite tender
and I love the bunch of rice that came with it!
|Shopping at Sack N Save. I wish these items were also in grocery markets|
here in the mainland!
|I heart Spam|
|The Curry Stew Special with beef and chunks of veggies. |
One of the best curries I've had! I also had a vanilla Ice Cream Cone. It was refreshing
to eat it on a warm day.
Overall my foodie trip to Hawaii was awesome as usual. I miss it and can't wait to come back to da aina again :)
Lately I've been going to new restaurants that recently opened in town like Bund Shanghai Restaurant, which serves Cantonese style fo...
