Nobu, Malibu

Since it first opened at its new Malibu location, Nobu has been at the top of my restaurant bucket list. It’s located on Pacific Coast Highway, with breathtaking views of the ocean.

Jessie and I made reservations for an early dinner, with the hopes that we could snag a table on the patio. We arrived just as the sun was setting.

Luckily we were able to sit on the patio, just as we hoped!

I felt bad for our waiter, because we didn’t stay in our seats for long. The sunset kept getting better and better! (you’ll see what I mean later).

We finally sat down long enough to place our order. Instead of selecting specific dishes, we told our waiter what we liked and didn’t like, and left the rest up to the chef! Every single dish was out of this world.

We started with yellowtail sashimi with jalapeno.

Then tried some albacore sashimi.

One of the highlights of the night for me was the salmon sashimi.

The spicy tuna on ricecake put others to shame.

Next was whitefish sashimi.

After the fifth dish, we were once again interrupted by the sunset. It was one of, if not the best, sunsets I have ever seen in Los Angeles.

The sky caught on fire.

The fire in the sky eventually set, leaving a calm aftermath.

Although the sunset ended, our meal didn’t end there. We also tried the king crab tempura, black cod with miso, scallop truffle chips, shrimp, mini tuna tacos, and a few more dishes. Sadly, it became too dark to take good pictures of the food. But trust me, you will love every second of your experience at Nobu.

I know I did!
