Vegetable Tan Tan

This is my favorite ramen place in Hawaii. The soup broth in the Tan Tan ramen is spicy and flavorful. The noodles are usually cooked al dente which, to me, is a must. My favorites are vegetable tan tan and wakame tan tan. We always order a side of gyoza.

Beware of their short hours. They also take every holiday imaginable off.



6375 Rainbow Blvd.  Las Vegas, NV

phone 702-898-9998   (They have a misprint on the business card (see above ‘suhi??”) as I am certain it is supposed to be ‘sushi’, as well as some misprints on the menu…so I am hoping that the address and phone number are correct.)

This place is off the strip, way out in the industrial north end of Las Vegas in Spring Valley and was introduced by our good friend and local guru ‘CL’.  It is likely to cater to lunch crowds because every time we go there for dinner it’s nearly empty.  They have an all you can eat sushi menu for $25 per person.  All you can eat sushi!!   The atmosphere is nice-ish, the service is medium-ish, the food is tasty-ish, however you can order roll after roll after roll after roll, well you get the idea…..the biggest kick is the menu is a bunch of fun to read over…..With sushi dishes such as “suck my roll”, “screaming orgasms”, “happy endings” and “wet dreams’ …. it is Vegas after all baby…..  my first thought is I shouldn’t be sharing this info…’cause what happens there stays there…..LOL.    3.5 stars….. with much, much room for improvement……however we will keep going back…’cause it’s all you can eat!

1335 N. First St., San Jose, CA 95112


One of our favorites!!  When clients and company come to town, we take them here for the sheer enjoyment of watching the food being prepared right in front of us.  The atmosphere is relaxed, yet classy, the service is extremely friendly and authentically dressed, and the Teppan-yaki exciting to watch…nothing like getting involved with your food…..lots of compliments to our favorite chef -Thomas.   Every meal we have ever had here, and we have had many, many, many, has been just amazing.  My personal favorite is the Fillet Mignon Steak and Lobster combination, which is served with; salad with ginger dressing, miso soup and always go for the fried rice, mmmmmm so good, add hot green tea, house saki or Sapporo beer, and the orange sherbet to finish…so much food I tend to skip the appetizer …..oh alright twist my arm, Edemame or California roll.  5 stars and kampai!
