Nobu – Malibu
I wanted to do something nice for my boyfriend’s birthday so I decided to take him to the popular Malibu, CA restaurant Nobu. You’ve probably seen it on shows like “Keeping up with the Kardashians” and “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”, or in weekly tabloid magazines since it’s a hot spot for celebs.
My bf is stationed at Port Hueneme so he’s driven by the place a few times and mentioned he wanted to go there. It’s always been on my ever-growing bucket list, so I figured it was a great occasion for us both to cross it off.
First, you have to really plan for this outing because they get booked a few weeks in advance. And second, I’ve been told their sushi isn’t worth the price so we decided to go with their hot/cold dishes instead.
We got 6 courses that included a ribeye with truffle butter, tempura popcorn shrimp salad with mushrooms and a spicy mayo dressing, spicy tuna crispy fried rice and blue fin toro tartar with caviar. It was all amazing and delicious. I think we both agreed the tartar was our favorite course.
It was probably the most expensive meal I’ve ever had, but it was delicious, the ambiance was amazing since you’re sitting right on top of the Pacific Ocean, and the company couldn’t have been any better, celebrities included!
