SOHO Japanese Restaurant

In Las Vegas there are amazing restaurants outside of the Strip and SOHO Japanese Restaurant is one of them.  Expect to be waiting in line no matter what time you come, it is worth the wait!

When my husband and I arrived, we were told there would be a 15 minute wait and that our waitress to be had to clean up the bar of where we were going to sit at.  We waited more than 15 minutes, but I saw that the waitress was multi-tasking a lot of things in a short period of time.  By the time she sat us she apologized for the longer than expected wait.

The specials:



Started off with Edamame.  It was the first time I had it with a dipping sauce:



Yellowtail Yuzu Soy- Topped with micro cilantro, garlic oil, ponzu, and garlic dust:



I love Salmon Sashimi:



Behold, the SOHO tadas!  This is a Mexican and Japanese fusion dish.  At the front is Hamachi - Salsa Verde, middle is Tuna - Hawaiian Poke Sauce, and at the back is Salmon - Pico De Gallo.



The second batch.  At the front is the White Fish - Shiso Pesto, middle is the Shrimp - Mango Salsa, back is the Tako (octopus) - Kimchee:


A nice, simple presentation of the Japanese Omelette (tamago):


Spicy Tuna Hand Roll:


The executive chef/owner, John Chien Lee, had heard about our long wait and gave us a Hydro Bibb Black Cod- marinated miso cod (my fave), lettuce cups, and garnished with crispy wontons.  How nice of him:


Our waitress asked if we liked scallops, we said yes and later was given another dish on the house!  This is the Hokkaido Scallop. This opulent dish did not have a "fishy" taste at all.  It was cleaned thoroughly and the garnishes paired well with the shellfish:


Lastly, we were surprised again with another free dish!  This is Soho Maki- egg rolls with chicken, shrimp, cabbage and sweet chili sauce as a dip.  This is similar to the Filipino lumpia:


All of the dishes we had were spectacular!  After meeting the Chef John, we could tell that he was passionate about his job and wanted to make sure all his customers were satisfied.  So if you enjoy eating Japanese food, you HAVE to eat at SOHO!  

P.S. Happy Hour is on Mon-Sat from 4pm-6pm.

Stockholm Trip '17

Over a month ago, my husband and I embarked on our first trip to Europe!!! We were there for a couple weeks and spent our time exploring the capital cities of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.  The two things I found most captivating was the art, especially the architecture, and the food!  Our trip started in Oslo, Norway and Copenhagen, Denmark (check out the links at the end of the post for more details) and ended our Euro trip in Stockholm, Sweden: AB CafĂ© Never in my whole life did I eat pastries and drink coffee every morning until I arrived in Europe! A lot of pastries I had were hearty which left me wanting to have at least one daily.  In the neighborhood near where we were staying at was  AB CafĂ© .  This is a small, cozy cafe where you can have a small bite to eat and drink before you start your day.  Pictured below is their Key Lime Sandwich, latte, and a bullar (sweet bun).  It was a nice fika !

For my 30th birthday, I decided to celebrate it for the entire month of November.   Since I've reached this milestone in my life, why not spread out the celebration?  Here are highlights of my birthday month: Cake, Cake, Cake My coworker got me this lovely Guava Cake from Andrea's World of Cakes , thank you Fran! Hawaii Trip '16 My family and I were in Hawaii for a bit.  Being there for my birthday was not the primary reason though :p We had this 'ono (delicious) and authentic Hawaiian meal from Waiahole Poi Factory : Don't forget the chili water and Shoyu! There's been many poke bowl shops poppin' up in Vegas.  But none yet that I've been to can beat the OG poke bowls from Hawaii!  Pictured here are poke bowls with simply marinated raw fish and rice.  We also had some sashimi and musubis from Foodland Farms : Li Hing Mui Frost from Frostcity :                   These huge Banana Mac Nut Pancakes with Coco
