This little area of Metairie is called Fat City. Pick a cuisine, and you can find a restaurant around here that offers it. The ones I’ve been to around here are Drago’s, Los Jefes, Bravo, Pho Michael, PF Chang’s and Todd’s Frozen Yogurt. That represents Creole/Seafood, Mexican, Italian, Vietnamese, Chinese and a place for dessert. It was time to give Japanese a try.
I’m not going to lie. I’m a pig. I love to eat! And when I heard this place did a good job with all you can eat sushi, I drove past all my favorite sushi joints to come here!
Nice looking place with several hibachi tables. They were all vacant when I arrived but two were going when I left. Looked like an entertaining show.
I wasn’t sure how the all you can eat thing worked, but as soon as I sat down the waitress handed me the first menu you see in the pictures and a pen. The next picture is the back side of it. It explains everything. $21.95 for an adult. It’s a paper menu. You just check off everything you want and they start brining you the food! The next two menus you see are plastic menus that describes their rolls.
I was starving so I checked off a bunch of things. I was thinking after eating more food than a normal person eats in an entire meal, I’d feel a little self conscious about asking for another check off menu. But before I was even close to finish, a smiling waitress walked up with a new menu and said, “This is for round two”! Was she being nice? Or was she saying, “I can see what a fat bastard you are, so I know you’ll be ordering more”! Either way, I was happy.
A few of the more notable things I ordered:
And the food!
I started off with some good old fried seafood. Shrimp tempura and soft shelled crabs. I could order some fried rice and just these two things (over and over again), and make a meal of it!
Both were fried to order. Nice and hot. The shrimp were a nice size and delicious!
When she put the crabs on the table they looked terrible! Like they had been driving down I-10, got in a terrible crash where they flipped the car several times, then the car caught on fire and incinerated them! But they were delicious!
Everything else was very good. I liked the Happy Roll. And of course when I saw the Lobster Roll was on the all you can eat menu I had to order it. Naturally it had a lot more snow crab salad in it than fried lobster, but it was still pretty tasty. And huge! I was done after that.
Except, for a scoop of red bean ice cream. It was very good because it tasted nothing like red beans! I’m not sure exactly what I could say it tasted like.
Nice place! I recommend it.
