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

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

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 …

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…

Elixir

When I heard that my friends wanted to meet up at the new local lounge, Elixir to watch a football game, I assumed this place would be like some neighborhood bars - a lot of drinks, but with subpar food... I was completely wrong!  Elixir had modern decor:


Interesting drinks:

And foods that are made in-house including the breads, and their meats are never frozen:

If you're looking for a different bar to watch a sports game, I recommend going to Elixir!  This lounge has a nice, chill atmosphere.  Also, their Happy Hour Specials have a lot to offer (there are new items that aren't in their site yet).
