It’s time to go back to Century City again and this time to RockSugar which is one of those fusion Asian snazzy type places, typical of LA.
After going to restaurants in LA and Vegas, you’d think I wouldn’t be impressed by just any decor but this place is straight out of the Asian castle scene from “Inception.” Even though the table for 2 is tiny, it actually felt nice and cozy in there.
We started with the Salmon Sashimi which had the most perfect ponzu style sauce to get the juices flowing right.
Next up, we got the Calimari. If you normally don’t like Calimari, I implore you to try this marinated Calimari. It’s not chewy at all and almost melts in your mouth. Delish. Try it.
For one of our main courses, we tried the Thai noodles with shrimp. The noodles were very good but I’m not 100% on board with the mix that it’s in. Don’t get me wrong. I ate the whole thing but it’s a little different.
If you like beef, try this “Shaking” beef as one of your main courses. The marinated beef is perfectly prepared and seasoned. They don’t even give you a knife to cut it with, because they know you won’t need one.
For one of our deserts, we had the custard cake. My friend liked it but it was not my cup of cake. I’ll pass on this one.
Lastly, the chocolate cake with coffee ice cream was good but nothing I haven’t had before. In fact, it’s about the same as the bunt cake at the Hustler Casino (free at the $300 table), in my opinion.
All in all, this was a great discovery and I’ll put this on my list of places to take out-of-towners I want to impress.
