Nobu

My favorite meal in Las Vegas was at Nobu.  It is owned by celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa and it is fantastic!  Not only did I love the food, I loved the decor as well.  Especially these pillow looking lights that hung at different levels from the ceiling.  How cool are those?

Enough with the decor...bring on the cocktail menu please!

I started the evening with a Peruvian Caipirinha.  A mix of Machu Pisco (which reminds me of Machu Picchu), fresh lime, brown sugar, shiso and ginger beer.  I loved it!  I also had the Grapefruit on the Rocks.  That one has gin, ginger liqueur (can you tell I love ginger), St. Germain Liqueur, and grapefruit juice.  Loved it too!  I was on a roll with great cocktails.

There were many parts to the Nobu menu.  We started with the cold stuff.

My favorite dish of the night was the yellowtail sashimi with jalapeno.   Spicy and delicious...it was perfection!

The other cold dish we got was the White Fish Tiradito.  It was my second favorite dish of the night.  As you can see, the cold menu was my favorite!

I love the way this tastes and looks.  The red color is a pile of spices and chili paste.  It sits in Yuzu and lemon juice with cilantro in the middle.  Once again, perfection!

Time to try some hot dishes!  We started with the creamy spicy rock shrimp.

My husband and I love this kind of thing.  A lot of restaurants serve their version of it, but this was the best we have had.  The shrimp was a tempura batter and the creamy sauce had lots of garlic in it.  Delish!

Our last hot dish was the Spicy Garlic Scallops.  It included asparagus, zucchini, red peppers and broccoli.  You can tell it's spicy just looking at it.  I think both of the hot dishes were my husband's favorite.  I thought they were fabulous, but I longed for more of the cold menu.  At this point we decided to try some shrimp tempura sushi because that is what we always get at sushi places back home and we wanted to compare.  It was good, but I wish we would have stuck with more sashimi.

This is where my night gets fuzzy.  I took this picture of the dessert menu, but for some reason didn't take a picture of dessert.  I also didn't get a picture of that shrimp tempura sushi.  Not sure if it had something to do with that empty glass behind the menu or if I just got lost in the amazing meal.  Either way, it was a fantastic night!  ;)

    1. Aren't you heading to Vegas soon? Eat at that Nobu! And yes, I do know how to eat well. If only I knew how to burn the calories as fast as I eat them. ;)

  2. There's a Nobu here in NYC, but I'm lukewarm on Japanese food. So did you start with all those cocktails? That's what I do too! The food looks absolutely amazing and, as my almost-mother-in-law used to say, it pleases the eyes before it pleases the stomach.
    Thanks for linking up this week, Sonja! Looking forward to hearing about your next restaurant visit.

  3. I'm so glad that you dine at these fantastic restaurants so I can enjoy them vicariously through you. The dishes on that menu look innovative, and I think I would have ordered the creamy, spicy rock shrimp, too.

  5. I love spicy seafood, any kind of seafood really! The Sashimi looks scrumptious. I love the taste and it is low on calories too - best of both worlds. With a nice glass of white wine and maybe a light dessert and I would be in heaven. :)

    1. Yes, yummy and low calorie don't usually go together, so when they do we better take advantage.
