After our heavy dinner at "The Cheesecake Factory" we decided on something light the following night by having some Japanese Food at Osaka Japanese Restaurant. It is one of a very few Japanese Restaurants off the strip that serves up some decent Japanese Food.
California Hand Roll
Surprisingly the Sashimi was really fresh particularly the Salmon. We really enjoyed it.
Basically Tuna Sashimi with a Mayo mix Thousand Island and Tobiko Sauce. The Sauce went really well with the fresh Blue Fin Tuna.
The Tofu was deep fried perfectly maintaining a nice light crust. However the Tofu they used was Chinese Tofu which wasn't as soft and silky as Japanese Tofu.
Beef Roll with Spring Onion
The Beef Roll was pretty good with some pieces very tender and some a little chewy from being overcooked.
Grilled Chicken Wings
The Chicken Wings were not grilled but deep-fried. It was quite bland.
Brandon's main course. The Pork they used had the right amount of fat making it very tender and juicy. The egg on top was also really good and the rice wasn't too soggy from the Katsu Sauce that was poured on top.
Cold Soba Noodles
Hamachi Kama Shioyaki
The Hamachi was grilled just right and was not overly salted.
The Prawns were fresh and the batter was crispy. It was so good we had two orders of it.
Fried Ice Cream
This was bad. The Tempura Batter was not completely cooked through leaving the inside very doughy.
This was the best dessert we had among the desserts we ordered. The Pineapple flavor was quite pronounced but the Sorbet was a little too icy.
Molten Chocolate Cake
This was really bad. It tasted like it came out from a packaged dessert. The Cake was very dry and too sweet.
Our supposedly light meal did not turn out so light after everything we ordered. Most of the dishes we had were good except for their Desserts.
