First time I've seen an uni, ikura, AND egg combo...will have to keep an eye out for that in NYC!


I've been craving Raku like crazy lately. Especially after recommending it to a few friends who were going to Vegas and also recapping my fav meals from last year. I'm currently working on DH as to why we need to make a trip to Vegas this year, just so I can visit Raku again. hehe.


Is it hard to get a reservation? The uni/roe/egg dish looks interesting. I still can't get used to tororo!


yum, that looks delicious!




Hi Kathy - It was a very nice combination.

Hi Kirbie - I'm sure you can talk DH into a trip! ;o)

Hi Faye - I think it depends on date and time. I'm pretty sure that prime days and times might be difficult at the last minute....but early and very late in evening (Raku is open until 3am) might be easier. You've also got to consider how busy Vegas is as a whole during that period, I'm sure that CES must have been crazy!

Hi Jason - Much of it was!

Yes indeed Kat!


Wow,the tofu and then gooey on gooey look amazing! I've never seen all of those things in one dish, and wonder why not, what a heavenly combination! We're not Vegas people, can't get a positive response from the hubs whenever I bring it up, so I must enjoy the vicarious thrills over here!


Hi FH - We're not really Vegas folks either. We stay off the strip. It's fascinating to walk around early in the morning....and of course the eating. Two nights just about does it for us...

Husband and I are very very very VERY much looking fwd to our next Vegas trip (Pres Day weekend) because we plan on returning to Raku. Our first time there, Husband labelled it one of the best meals he's had in his life and was very sad we couldn't fit it in the next trip. I'm excited about feeding the kidlet the agedashi tofu! It's my favorite version so far...


Hi Rosa - I'm sure you'll have a great time!
