When you think of Las Vegas you think huge casinos and gambling, but Las Vegas has some of the best restaurants in the county. Hell even some of the buffets are really good! I’ve had some of the best meals of my life in Vegas. The Rodizio Fire Pit at Rum Jungle was awesome, my monstrous shrimp cocktail and 22oz porterhouse at Envy Steakhouse was just great and the 5-course meal I had Zeffirino was simply amazing. Oncec again this year in Las Vegas I had one of the best meals of my life, definitely the best sushi of my life!
It was pretty late at night and Colin, Jack, Ramzi and I were originally going to go to the Pho place at Treasure Island, but it was closed. So we walked across the street to the Palazzo and ended up at Sushi Samba. Sushi Samba isn’t just a Japanese sushi place its a mix of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine. The inside of Sushi Samba is very chill and relaxing. I started things off with a Mojito, which is becoming one of my favorite drinks.
The menu was quite big, they seemd to have a lot of things that I might have wanted to try, but I was here for Sushi! They had most of the normal Sushi you would find most places but they had many unique rolls that were a mix of Japanese, Brazilian, and Peruvian all in one. I first ordered the BoBo Brazil which is comprised of seared american kobe beef, avocado, kaiware, shiso, red onion and chimichurri. Then I was about to order a shrimp tempura roll, when our waitress told me they had this special which was a shrimp tempura roll topped with seared Japanese Kobe beef and avocado spread. So I decided on that instead.
When the Sushi was brought out I tried the BoBo Brazil rolls first and they were just great! One of the better rolls I’ve had in a long time, it had quite a lot of different flavors to it. After trying to BoBo Brazil roll I tried one of the special rolls. When I put it in my mouth it just like melted! The Japanese Kobe beef was so tender and had a taste that I never experieced before, it was amazing! There have only been a few times in my life when I ate something and was like, “Wow this food is just AMAZING!” this was one of those times. There is definitely a difference between Japanese and American kobe beef too! This was the best Sushi I’ve ever had in my life and would fly to Vegas just for it! Thats how good it was! If you are in Vegas you definitely have to check out Sushi Samba!
