Nobu is the place to go for quality Nikkei cuisine but its extensive menu also serves up sashimi, sushi and other more traditional options, making it the go-to place for consistency good Japanese food as well
The Nobu name is synonymous with innovative Japanese cuisine and while there are a lot of restaurants that serve similar fare today, the restaurant still stands out for its consistency and quality. This is apparent in dishes such as the yellowtail sashimi with jalapeño, a popular ingredient in Japanese fusion cuisine. Nobu’s dish is all about quality—the pieces of yellowtail are sliced at just the right thickness and the accompanying sauce is piquant but not overpowering. Another dish to go for is the truffle uni rice with seaweed tacos—one order comes with four servings, each in the ideal size to be eaten with one hand, and each has a good ratio of rice, uni and truffle in each bite. The black cod miso is faultless; the chunks of fish give way easily and each sliver has the perfect balance of sweetness and umami. Nobu’s menu is extensive and it’s easy to get caught up in trying the different dishes, but make sure to leave room for dessert. Round ’n’ Round cheesecake is a frozen cheesecake with an intriguing raspberry soda filling that has a bit of fizz to it, all accompanied by the caramel-like sweetness of Hokkaido black honey.
