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.

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!

Flock & Fowl

If you're in the mood to eat a chicken dish, I highly recommend checking out Flock & Fowl.  This restaurant specializes in making Hainanese Chicken Rice.  It's a simple dish consisting of poached organic, free range chicken with marinated cucumbers and preserved mustard greens as seen in the photo below.  You may dip the chicken in ginger scallion sauce, house made sambal (chile), and house made soy sauce for more flavor/kick (not pictured).  Also, the sides to choose from are organic egg, Chinese sausage (lap cheung), chicken broth, or more chicken rice:

On the day we dined there, the Chicken & Poached Egg Congee was the special dish of the day.  Congeeis a rice porridge that's common throughout Asian countries.  It can be eaten plain, but usually comes with garnishes and sides:



We couldn't resist trying their steamed buns:

After I ate, I felt like I finished a home cooked meal, which is a rare feeling for me when eating at any restaurant.  Keep in mind this …
