Our Valentine’s Date

I know I’m a bit late posting this, but I am happy to finally share our Valentine’s Day. Being completely transparent, we hadn’t planned on doing anything major. We were going to stay in, cook dinner, and watch a movie. Everyday is basically Valentine’s Day for me because I get to spend it with the best husband ever, but he knows how much I love a good date night so out we went.

We had no reservations anywhere but forged ahead and walked to an outdoor mall with plenty of options. Our plan was King’s Fish House but the wait would be an hour to an hour and a half. We decided to check out somewhere else and put our names down for Kabuki because the wait was 35 minutes!

While “waiting” we walked around and asked about some other waiting times. Lucille’s BBQ had a wait for three hours!! I was astonished!

Thankfully for us all of that killed some time and we arrived back at Kabuki and chatted for a little while before it was our turn to get seated. We were both so happy to finally be sitting and looking at a menu! To say we went a bit overboard with ordering is being kind.

Anytime we go get sushi we always get edamame. Whether it’s plain or garlicky and spicy we love the stuff. It’s something delicious to munch on and distract you while you wait for everything else. This time was no different and we ordered the spicy garlic edamame.

This menu had pictures and when I noticed the black miso cod it looked so good so we had to try it. The cod was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The freshness of the cucumbers and carrots that came with it added a nice contrast to the perfectly cooked fish.

Ever since discovering spicy tuna on crispy rice we always look for it on the menu. There’s something so magical about the tuna piled high on the crispy cake of rice. The texture of the soft fish and the crispy rice patty really make it delectable.

We ordered three sushi rolls. The first was a nice basic spicy tuna roll. It was good and fresh! Nothing to complain about and nothing to write home about..

I wish I could remember what the 2nd and 3rd rolls were, but I can’t and I’ve been combing through the menu now for a good 10 minutes and have had no luck figuring it out.

I think the second one was the Sun Kissed Roll with salmon the outside and spicy tuna and avocado on the inside.

The other had this coconut curry base with red bell pepper, cilantro, and shrimp on top of a California roll (maybe??)..

We both left feeling fully and happy! It was a little panicky in the beginning trying to figure out a plan B on the fly, but thankfully it all worked out! We had a great time and enjoyed spending some together time…goodness I do love my guy!
