I never got around to writing this post so I figured I would give credit where credit is due. Before this meal there was no question that the best sushi meal of my life was at Sushi Yasuda in New York City. I was always extremely curious how good Masa in NYC could really be. Only problem is I didn’t have $1300.00 or whatever crazy amount it is to find out. So when I was headed to Vegas I was excited to see that Masa had a more “affordable” option and it happened to be in the hotel we were staying in. When we got there they had a quite large menu outside of sushi which I found kind of weird. However, I knew why I was there so we started out by getting 2 orders of the chef’s choice. I will say that it was knockout. It completely lived up to the hype. We also got a roll with sea urchin which was extremely delicious. The dining room was gorgeous but felt kind of cold and I did not like how there was no sushi bar. The sushi came out of the kitchen which felt kind of weird. The meal was very expensive but it was good. After the meal I did not have a hard time deciding what was the best sushi I ever ate. It was definitely at Sushi Yasuda. Not only did the fish taste better but I feel like when your spending that kind of money you want the sushi made in front of you. I am by no means an expert on Japanese food in Vegas and for all I know there is just as good or better sushi far cheaper.  But if you are an out-of-towner and want a sure thing, you will not be disappointed with this sushi.
