808 Tapas East-West Infusion

***Update: business closed***

With my Groupon about to expire, it was time to try this Hawaiian style small plates and sushi restaurant located in the revitalized strip mall at the corner of Sahara and Fort Apache roads.

The best items were the ones with bold flavors with ingredients that masked the quality of the fish. A perfect example of that were the Tensai hamachi shooters ($15 for 6). The ponzu sauce and white truffle oil made for a delicious and bold combination, but over powered the yellowtail. In the same vein, the sauce in the spicy tuna crackers ($6.50) were the prominent element in the dish along with the wasabi crackers, relegating the fish to a secondary role. The yellowtail jalapeno ($7) dish was another solid item that used plenty of yuzu to create bold flavors.

Less successful were the kalbi short ribs ($8), a small plate with approximately six rich and sweet kalbi ribs that were unfortunately very oily. The sushi and sashimi were the weakest items due to the chewy and tough texture of some of the fish. The sinew in the tuna in the sashimi plate ($8) was rather pronounced and made it tough to eat. The tuna topping the Victorino roll ($13) suffered from the same problem.

With so many lackluster dishes, I’m not sure I’d come back and chances are if I am back in this strip mall I’d hit up Settebello or Bachi Burger instead.

  1. Take the structure No. 305522-101 for example. We can separate the 9 digits into sections. The 1st section is 305522 and also the other is 101. As for the first section, all style No. of Nike Series begins with 3 and the remaining 5 digits represent the series which these comfortable shoes belong towards. All your attention, the “Style Code” for the first shoes is 02001 rather than 00001. The additional section, contained 3 digits, contains information of colourways.Surprise: The new sneakers are sold at low prices!Hey. you good friend:The new Jordan sneakers are sold at a lower price, the price is cheaper, the quality is better, and the discount is ploughed!

  10. My spouse and i have been quite glad John managed to do his investigations
    while using the precious recommendations he made using
    your web page. It’s not at all simplistic to just choose to be giving
    out secrets and techniques some other people may have been making money from.
    So we consider we’ve got the blog owner to appreciate for this.

    The entire illustrations you’ve made, the simple website menu, the friendships you aid to create
    – it’s everything sensational, and it is letting our son and
    us feel that the matter is amusing, and that is rather important.
    Thank you for the whole lot!

  12. In response to the theme of the Renaissance, flat boots similar to ancient Roman gladiators appeared on the show. The leather of the shoe body is matched with the retro Roman-style winding strap, which is chic and practical to wear.

  13. I seriously love your website.. Excellent colors & theme. Did you make this web site yourself? Please reply back as Iím wanting to create my own personal blog and would love to know where you got this from or just what the theme is called. Cheers!
