Las Vegas, NV: Raku

After our trip to Tokyo, I was craving Japanese cuisine almost everyday. I knew Raku would hit the spot during our trip to Las Vegas. The last time we've dined at Raku was back in 2009. This place doesn't need an introduction. You just need to know that this is a place where other world-class chefs dine at off the Strip.

One thing I noticed since our last visit was the dining room had extended to second room. Given the number of diners every night, a reservation is a must. A number of diners were turned away since they didn't have a reservation. If you call the restaurant by 3pm, you can snag an early reservation at 6pm.

As soon as we were seated, we knew exactly what to order. We always try to get a few specials written on the black chalkboard and a number of classics. I recommend ordering the house-made tofu. 

Shrimp Balls

Bluefin Tuna Sashimi

Juicy Deep Fried Chicken

Kobe Beef Outside Skirt with Garlic

Kobe Beef Fillet with Wasabi

Yellowtail with Glazed Soy-based Sauce

Chicken Breast with Skin

Kurobuta Pork Cheek

Steamed Foie Gras Egg Custard

Fluffy Cheesecake

Raku will never let me down. The service is prompt and helpful and the food is unparallelled.
