When we saw Sushi Samba, while walking in the Shoppes at the Palazzo, I was so excited. It has always been a favorite restaurant of mine. I had been to Sushi Samba, a few years ago, in South Beach, Florida and thoroughly enjoyed it. I really wanted Ren to try it and this was our opportunity! Their menu is really unique; combining essences of Brazilian, Peruvian and Japanese culinary influences. Our server was great and so accommodating. He really enjoyed making suggestions on what we might like.
For an appetizer, we ordered the Otsumami, which was an assortment of edamame, green bean tempura and Shisito peppers. Shisito peppers are mild Japanese peppers. They were grilled and served with sea salt and a hint of lemon. Oh wow these were delicious. Once we got a taste of these peppers, we ordered them again at two other restaurants through the course of our stay in Las Vegas. We are now addicted. They are flavorful and the taste is awesome. We are going to look for them at home and prepare them for ourselves. For dinner, we ordered two types of Anticichos; Beef Tenderloin and Aji Panca, and Sea Bass with Miso. They are skewers marinated in their own special concoction of flavors. The taste of these skewers was simply amazing. The skewers were served with Peruvian corn. The corn kernels were about 5 times the size of the corn that people are used to in the United States.
Our appetites forced us to order another set of the Sea Bass skewers. Two other patrons on a date near us, were noticing how much we were thoroughly enjoying our meal. They actually came over to us and asked us what we had ordered. We were happy to oblige, and filled them in on our selections. They immediately told their server that they wanted exactly what we ordered. Needless to say, we really enjoyed our experience at Sushi Samba. The service, the food, the ambiance and our fellow patrons were all really wonderful.
(We are sorry for not having more pictures of the delicious food. The dark interiors, and a camera malfunction, caused our pictures to not save ☹ )
