Omakase at Yummy Grill & Sushi

For my postpartum treat, I returned back to Yummy Grill & Sushi for their omakase (leaving the selection to the chef).  Since it was a long time for me without eating raw seafood, it was quite overwhelming for me, but in a good way!  I felt like I was being reintroduced to my favorite cuisine again.  

If you're interested in trying Yummy's omakase, go to the restaurant in November because the new expanded area that will be opening is going to be exclusive to customers who will be ordering from the omakase menu!

We were served over 20 delicious foods.  The owner/chef who usually does the omakase was out of town so he trained his sushi chef, Steven, to do the preparing and presentation for him.  Chef Steven said the owner does a better job than him, but we assured him we were impressed with his presentation of the foods!

Appetizer- Cucumber salad topped with imitation crab

Takoyaki Tempura- octopus legs lightly fried in tempura batter in a house made soy-based sauce

Shigoku oysters topped with various colors of tobiko

Ankimo- Monkfish liver paired with ikura and lemon

Koshihikari Echigo Beer- Light, smooth, and refreshing!

Tai- Japanese Snapper sourced straight from Japan

Live abalone platter

Abalone cuts served fresh in-house

Fresh lobster platter prepared from a live lobster, garnished with lemon and topped with tobiko

Lobster sashimi up close

More lobster!

Lobster leg soup- uni cream based soup mixed with corn, bonito flakes, mushrooms, and potato

Lobster miso soup- The lobster just keeps on coming!

Otoro (bluefin tuna) nigiri sourced from Spain

Madai (seabream) nigiri garnished with homemade soy sauce and fresh ginger

Fresh mirugai (geoduck) nigiri

Maguro zuke (tuna) nigiri topped with a dab of fresh wasabi

Kamashita otoro nigiri and sashimi

Aji (horse mackerel) nigiri

Salmon belly nigiri

Uni (sea urchin) nigiri from Hokkaido, Japan

Kampachi (amber jack) nigiri

Thank you Yummy Grill & Sushi for an awesome omakase experience!  We look forward to coming in next month and seeing the new omakase room.

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:

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…

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!
