Raku $100 tasting menu - extremely overpriced

Worldwide Diner | Dec 26, 201410:57 AM

I went to Raku recently and asked for their $100 tasting menu.

First course, tofu. I've lots of excellent tofu, they don't blow my mind, ever. These are just decent.

Second, oyster w/ caviar. They didn't specify what kind of caviar and I'm no expert. This could've been a costly dish but I find nothing special about it.

Third, sashi. No fatty tuna. Pretty boring for high end sashimi.

Fourth, grilled tomatoes. I would never have ordered these.

Fifth, grilled fish. Tasted good but it was only half of a small fish.

Sixth, scallop. I thought these were overcooked so while the saucing was excellent, I didn't particularly liked the dish.

Seventh, grilled wagyu. Tasty. I enjoyed the garlic combo.

Eight, grilled pork. Really fatty, which is fine for flavor.

Ninth, fish and mushroom. I think this is the other half of that little silver fish.

Tenth, tuna tartare?

There's a restaurant in DC called Sushi Taro. You can get Omakase at the 6 seat sushi bar. For $125, you get around 15 courses, with several courses including multiple items. For the sushi and sashimi courses, you could pick from 6 trays of seafood. Sushi Taro blows Raku out of the water by comparison.

I also hate going off the strip without a car. Taxis in LV blows. Charging $3 extra for credit card.

Maybe I should've skipped the Omakase?

Raku,
