My husband and I ate at Nobu back in April of 2011 and enjoyed it so much we have been longing to return ever since. We were in Dallas to see Brian Regan at the Fair Park Music Hall and decided to take the opportunity to eat at Nobu again.
We had tried an Omakase (tasting) meal with our first visit and the service was as exceptional as the meal. We did not have the same experience this second visit. This time we ordered ala carte. Almost every dish we ordered was exceptional, the only one that wasn't was the House Special Roll which was not so special in my opinion (just an ordinary roll with salmon, tuna, tobiko, avocado, rice, and maybe crab- in a roll that had too large of a circumference too eat in one bite causing me to repeatedly drop it and splash in the soy sauce.) The Tiradito Nobu Style was perfection on a plate- white fish with chili and yuzu. It was both spicy and tangy. We also had Tuna with a wonderful cilantro sauce, which helped cool down our tongues after the Tiradito. My husband enjoyed his Miso Soup and I enjoyed a nice Seaweed and Cucumber Salad. We both drooled over the Kushiyaki (skewers) Beef and Vegetables with the Aniti-cucho sauce. That sauce is amazing. It is very spicy but so good. We were sweating and loving every minute of it. To end the meal we had some Mochi Icecream (the Red Velvet and Pumpkin flavors are quite wonderful and unique.) We also had several cocktails, which were okay, but not worth $14 each.
The service this time was rushed. We had multiple dishes on our table all at once and the server seemed to be doing his best to get us to finish as quickly as possible. The food, however, was so good we will return again for our next celebration meal. But we learned that Omakase is probably the best way too experience Nobu.
