Sushi Samba Las Vegas

The menu at Sushi Samba is completely addicting. Sushi Samba melds Japanese, Peruvian, and Brazilian interpretations on food, drink, and design. It's like a little something for everyone, with many unique and delicious dishes perfect for sharing. And really, that is the fun of Sushi Samba, enjoying several beautiful dishes while emphasizing the social aspect of the dining experience. Eating here is also fun; from the whimsical decor, to the food itself, it's a delightful experience. After the rich breakfast we enjoyed at Bouchon, we were looking forward to enjoying a few vegetables. More often than not, vegetables are virtually ruined by excessive or ransid oil. Luckily, Sushi Samba perfectly prepared the field green salad with sliced radishes, and beets. It came with a light and flavourful carrot ginger dressing. Very refreshing. Photobucket The tuna tataki was a nice combination of salty and sweet, tender and crunchy. Photobucket We loved the shrimp ceviche, with perfectly chopped vegetables, and a crunchy plantain to top it off. Photobucket The sushi platter, with the samba strip roll, was gorgeous, in every sense. It was a nice surprise to have a few bites of lobster to accompany our rolls, but the unagi (bbq eel), hiding in the background was absurdly good. My caipirinha is in the background, just as strong as it should be. Photobucket This cake looks too simple. Fortunately, it was not. It was a warm chocolate banana cake, but hiding underneath the vanilla rum ice cream is this toffee-like maple piece. Now it does sound simple, I agree, although it tucked a nice little surprise into a warm chocolate cake, which wouldn't otherwise compete with the hundreds of other warm chocolate cakes available elsewhere. Photobucket Christian Louboutin. This is for Shauna, and other lovers of shoes. It makes getting to Sushi Samba not half bad, cough, cough, as you wander through the shops of the Palazzo.

I actually ate at Sushi Samba in Dallas, TX: delicious! And the service was awesome: we had a few toddlers at the table and the waiters were super patient.

The contemporary version, internationally known as "sushi", was created by Hanaya (actually he's my best friend...) The sushi invented by Hanaya was an early form of fast food that was not fermented (therefore prepared quickly) and could be eaten with one's hands by a road or in a theatre. 23jj
