Nobu New York, one of my favorite Japanese restaurants. I got the $120 Omakase menu here and I must say it was definitely worth it. The food wasn't overpowering in taste. They were light in taste yet flavorful at the same time. Texture was awesome too. One of my favorites here is the matsuhisa dressing. It's a little citrus-y salty and a little pepper-ish? It's perfect. I would've ordered a bottle of that if I could. The rest of the food were up to standard. You know when you walk into restaurants like this and you kinda expect their food to be of a certain standard and I'd say their food passed or surpassed my expectations. Well, if you think the omakase is a little too pricey, the a la carte menu isn't too bad either. Just make sure you order the black cod miso because Nobu makes it best. The cod is so fresh. It's cooked just right, not too juicy, not too dry with a rich miso taste. It's lovely. Lastly, if you're a chocolate lover, you have to try the warm chocolate cake. The warm chocolate oozes out like chocolate lava. It's bittersweet and together with the green tea icecream, it's just absolutely delicious.

They've so many different locations. I'd say the food quality is pretty much consistent throughout. I've been to Nobu London and it was amazingly good too. I'll do a feature on that sometime later. 

Well then, this probably is my last post for 2010. Happy new year everyone! 2011 will be a great year =)

Hi all, this is hands down my favorite green tea cupcake I can find anywhere in the world. Why are the green tea cupcakes so good? because it has one of the most authentic green tea taste when you bite into it. You gotta smell it first, then bite it.  The place is Kyotofu NYC. They serve brunch, lunch, dinner, desserts, cocktails anything but I usually go for their desserts. I personally recommend the warm miso chocolate cake but really I just wanna get my hands on those lovely yummy green tea cupcakes. The restaurant has a nice chill and classy interior, definitely go chill and have a cup of tea with some delicious japanese snacks. The green tea cupcakes are strictly to go just because it is about 3.50 each to go or 8 bucks at the restaurant. so yea, if you're around the area, definitely go try it out =)
