Tsunami Asian Grill, in the Venetian Hotel and Casino

Any place that has Kirin Ichiban on draft is two steps closer to being an object of my eVerlasting affection.

But, of course, the food has to shine eVen more brightly to make up for the heightened expectations.

I "ducked" (you'll get it later) into Tsunami to grab a one-dish meal. That happened to be the roasted duck with pineapple and basil in a red curry sauce.

The good -- the duck was off the bone (thankfully), the curry was hot but not killer hot and there was a lot of food.

The bad -- what happened to the rice?!

After asking a few times and already haVing eaten half the bowl, the white rice came. A little too sticky, but not bad.

Final Comment: Need to hit this joint again, but $14 for that meal is a good bargain when the other main option is Tao.
