Morimoto Las Vegas

Earlier in the day I was pleasantly surprised by a great fish and chips lunch, and now I was craving one of my favorite foods, sushi! The best sushi I had in Vegas was off the strip in Chinatown, but this time I stopped by Morimoto which was conveniently located in the MGM Grand, the hotel I was staying at.

I grabbed a seat at the bar and ordered the Asian Pear made with Grey Goose La Poire, ginger shrub, and yuzu. Tasty!

All the appetizers and main dishes sounded good, but I had my heart set on some sushi. I ordered the Chef’s Sushi Combination which comes with 10 pieces of nigiri and a spicy tuna roll for $55.

The sushi was alright. The pieces were a bit too big and heavy with the rice. I’ve come to realize that you don’t go to Morimoto for the sushi. I’ve had a great dinner at Morimoto NYC where I enjoyed the tasting menu and it’s the signature appetizers and unqiue dishes that really shine. This holds true for Nobu as well.

I tried another cocktail, the Geisha’s Secret. It had Kai lychee vodka, shochu, calpico, and pomegranate. Both cocktails were great.

Another day in Vegas has gone by. I couldn’t wait for the hockey game tomorrow and seeing T-Mobile arena!
