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

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 …

Herbs & Rye

After driving pass by Herbs & Rye for many years I finally went in to see what all the hype was about this place.  They serve classic cocktails that were popular during the Prohibition Era and before that time like the Gothic Age (unknown-1865) and Golden Age (1865-1900):

Here's an example of of some of the drinks:

I loved all the drinks they made, wasn't disappointed with any of them:


Herbs & Rye also serves Italian food like flatbreads, pasta, and  they're known for the steaks they cook, I'll try some next time!  I only had the appetite to drink:

I really enjoyed my time here especially the atmosphere of a "speakeasy feel".  They get busy during the weekends so if you plan to dine in, make a reservation!

Dirt Dog

If you are a hot dog fiend, I highly suggest checking out Dirt Dog! They specialize in gourmet bacon-wrapped hot dogs.  They're originally from LA, recently opened shop here in Las Vegas and planning to open another location on The Strip:
