-yaki onigiri (grilled rice ball) w/ Kaku Rei plum sake
-Kobe beef fillet w/ wasabi & Kobe beef skirt with ginger
-fried ebi (shrimp)
-tsukune (ground chicken) skewers
-portobello stuffed with chicken
As much as I love sushi, there's a special place in my heart for yakitori. I wish there were more places that served it in Vegas. Raku in Chinatown is consistently on top of the "Japanese Food" list on yelp, and it's easy to see why. Prime example of quality over quantity. I even tried their Kobe beef, which I'm not convinced is the real deal, but it was delicious nonetheless.
