Last month, we resumed our monthly date night.  We frequented Amakara in Dublin.  I found it by Yelping a Japanese restaurant close to our house and Amakara came up as highly rated and reviewed.  Yes, another Japanese restaurant after taking my brother to Sushi House in Alameda for his birthday dinner the week before.

The Grilled Edamame with sea salt and olive oil was an addictive appetizer.

The Tuna Ceviche salad had a generous amount of maguro tuna sashimi and mango cubes.

We ordered two Amakara Original Rolls: Italian Dragon and Klondike Express.  The Italian Dragon roll had sweet teriyaki inside and sat on top on a tasty basil/pesto sauce.  The Klondike Express was unique in that it had scallops and five different colored roe as a topping.

The food came out and the service was great in that our drinks were constantly refilled and the waitress came by to check on us often.  This is a great place to go out on a date with romantic-dimmed lighting around with the exception of the sushi bar with big screen TV.  Amakara also has great cushion-ey leather seats.

Hurray for finding a Sushi House-like place that’s closer to our house.  We’ll be coming back for more.
