Japanese feast!

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

My girlfriend and I tried a really good Japanese cuisine- Akira last month. It’s an izakaya-type place, where you order small dishes and share amongst your party. We really enjoyed the food and customer service. Our server was really nice and friendly. I loved the ambiance of the restaurant as well- it was beautiful.

Agedashi tofu. So, so good! Can’t go wrong with this dish.

Prosciutto papaya allegra salad. This was very interesting. I liked it! Made it unique with the papaya.

Tai-chazuke. Yummy! Chazuke is my childhood fave dish! I had it all the time as a kid. It’s the simplest dish ever! Rice and tea, or broth. Bam!

Chawan mushi is always good to order.

And last, but not least, natto nigiri. My ultimate fave. Yum! Mouthwatering!

We would definitely go back to try more of their food.

When in Alaska…

…Gotta have them WILD Alaskan salmon.

When I was vacationing in Alaska last summer, I took advantage of eating wild salmon as much as I could. Yum! Nothing like wild fish in a variety of dishes.

Wild salmon and wild rice pastry from The Roadhouse in Talkeetna, AK. This was pretty good. I’m a huge fan of wild rice. I had to try it!

I loved this small town of Talkeetna. There’s a sense of community there, which I cherish.

Honey lime salmon salad from the Grizzly Bar & Grill at the Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge. I also ordered a chicken noodle soup, which was homemade.

I loved this lodge. The scenery was beautiful. The featured image above is a few of a creek next to the lodge. It really felt cozy, like I was camping in the wilderness. The air was crisp and brisk.

Blueberry salmon from 20,320 Alaskan Grill at the Mt. McKinley Princess Lodge.

I also enjoyed this lodge, too. We got to see the Northern Lights one night, too. It was beautiful. Nature is truly amazing.

Go to Alaska if you want to experience some spectacular nature. You will have a greater appreciation for it. I know I did.
