Japanese food has a special place in my heart. I crave it. I crave fresh fish. I crave fresh wasabi. I crave sushi. I crave Sake. Yes, I have some real issues with wanting too much all the time. My problem is that I might be a little too promiscuous. A few weeks ago I was so excited about Nobu at Caesars Palace that I stopped in 3 times in one week. I could not get enough of the lounge or the sushi. Before that I was ranting and raving about Testu at Aria Resort. You would have thought that they had me on the payroll the way I would go on about how much fun I had there.
Well...here I go again.
My new favorite, although, really, how long will it last? Shibuya at MGM Grand Las Vegas. I had a remarkable time there recently. So, I thought maybe it was the fact that I spent a fun meal with a friend and we laughed about dumb things and shared some exciting and intriguing food. New menu, new chef, good atmosphere. Was it a fluke? Well, I went in alone. I went in right when the restaurant opened. It was not super busy so the atmosphere was a bit different. The food was still remarkable and memorable. Just like that I fell in love with a different Japanese restaurant and if you know me you have already heard about it. Two strangers in the elevator after my meal heard about it. My wife had to hear about it yet I failed to take her in to try anything.
I'm a sucker for a good meal and I'm always looking for my next favorite spot. So, even though I'm excited about this today you know I'm eating my way around town at this very moment looking for the greener grass.
