An evening of delectable delights!

I’m a foodie! Had another dinner get together with some friends last. This time, we went to a Japanese restaurant called Yutaka. It’s a large, beautiful restaurant with a dark and serene appearance. With an extensive menu, everyone had trouble deciding what to order. After several reviews, I finally settled on what to have and was very happy with my order.

For my main meal, I opted to go for a trio of appetizers, that way I could try a few different dishes. I had the 10 Vegetable Tempura that was nicely coated with a light batter. 

10 Veggies Tempura, rah, rah, rah!

I went on to the Sashimi which was a generous portion of very delicate fish. It just melted in my mouth. 

Sashimi for me!

My final plate was a Sushi Pizza. It’s something I always get if it’s on the menu. I’m always on the lookout for the best one. This Sushi Pizza wasn’t bad, but I would take away the red and yellow bell peppers.

Have a slice of pizza!

Of course, there’s always room for dessert! I had to go for the Green Tea Crème Brûlée. I love crème brûlée. It’s what I normally go for if this dessert ever appears on a menu. I love cracking the hard, sugary surface and extract the sweet, creamy goodness within. This particular crème brûlée had a vibrant green custard that tasted slightly sweet and a little earthy. You could really taste the green tea. 

Crack this dessert!

Look what I found!

Our dining experience wasn’t the best. Orders took a while to get to our table, there were mix-ups in the kitchen, and plates were showing up at different times for everyone. We had a very friendly and very apologetic server whom we couldn’t help but love with her great smile. She was so sorry for our experience, she offered everyone a round of ice-cream on the house. How sweet! So, we took her up on her offer and all went for the Black Sesame Ice-cream. She even threw in an additional scoop of Ginger Ice-cream! Both hit the right spot. Yes, I had a double dose of dessert last night. Yikes!

Overall, my experience at Yutaka was great. The restaurant was understaffed, but we still had a great server taking care of us. I would definitely come back for the delicious food including the yummy crème brûlée, as well as the wonderful serving staff.
