Rice & Dough - Fort Lauderdale, FL

It started with a bottle of Flaco and it was on from there!

They were hosting a party that night, but luckily, they were able to find a table in the back; privacy was a definite plus in that.

I was intrigue by the restaurant because of the Japanese and Italian concept and I was curious to see how that would work. I made it work by ordering a roll as an appetizer. Can't remember what it was which means it wasn't that memorable, but it was good enough.

For my main, I switched to Italian and had the Lasagna which was quite good and might I add homemade. The layers merged together in a pleasant way.

However, the star of the night were the Kobe Meatballs which were truly delicious and super moist.

In the end, I am not sure how well the Japanese and Italian concept works, but it did get me in the door and although I wouldn't recommend the Japanese and I wouldn't come here looking for an authentic Italian experience; it is a chill spot for some food, wine and friends.

Revisit: Sushi Sake - Doral, FL (Other Locations)

Sushi Sake doesn't try to impress by providing the highest quality of sushi, but the where they lack, they make up for by creating flavor combinations that will make you say am I eating crack and why am I addicted?

Spicy Tuna Roll
Miami Heat Roll
Yummi Roll
Angel Roll

Although lunch time can sometimes be packed (Fridays), I recommend going during the day (Monday-Wednesdays), because they offer discounts and why not save a couple of dollars?

Steak Fried Rice

Service definitely requires some improvement but the atmosphere is inviting and the sushi is good so I keep going back.
