Sushi Samba at the Palazzo

                The Cocktail that preceded the Cake Boss Incident

After a day of wandering the Strip (to the tune of 7 miles per the pedometer) we were ready for happy hour drinks and nibbles ($6 plates and drinks) at Sushi Samba at the Palazzo shops.

 I cannot remember the names of our drink specials but they were some powerful fruity concoctions that made me feel like I was on vacation.  We sat at the bar and were entertained by the young folk adjacent to us and well taken care of by our bartenders.

Waygu beef gyoza: some of the best pot-stickers I have ever eaten although I am not sure if this is the best use of Waygu. 

 

Scallop sushi and salmon skin roll: delicious but not stand-outs.  We had two orders of the seabass tempura on the recommendation of the bartender--ethereal crust dusted with togarashi.  Gone too fast for a photo.  The tuna tartare was a nice sized serving for the price but not especially memorable.  We also enjoyed a sake flight for $15.  Refreshingly inexpensive tab for great food and drink, and one of the few happy hours in Vegas that doesn't involve beer in plastic cups and your standard bar fare.
