Grand Opening! Kashira Japanese restaurant - Koreatown

I was invited to Kashira's grand opening tasting event. The owner and the sushi chefs are all Japanese. You get to try authentic Japanese food for very reasonable prices. I posted pics of the menu below so you can see it. They also have happy hour, 4-9pm, and 2 hours free parking! But if you are drinking a lot, you can take metro right in front of the restaurant.

I really enjoyed the food. Everything was very fresh.

CLICK HERE for my short Tastemade video.



















Crunchy Spicy Tuna Roll













Popcorn Shrimp Roll


























Sake, tea, and iichiko Yuzu. I can't say no to anything with Yuzu. It was delicious.













Live Oyster was huge! So meaty and I loved it. Probably the biggest and thickest oysters I've ever had.
















Salmon Sashimi













Bluefin Tuna w/Garlic Chili oil













Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice Cake













Ahi Poke Salad













Real Dradon Roll













I tried ahi poke salad, spring roll, rice cake, sashimi and rolls.














Bara chirashi reminds me of my mom's homemade chirashi. It has kanpyo, shredded eggs and fresh seafood. We had sample size. When you order at the restaurant, you get bigger size of course.













Otoro Salmon, Uni, Scallop, Yellowtail, Bluefin Tuna. Delicious.













Tokyo Shoyu Ramen. I really liked their ramen.. really. Loved the thickness of the noodle and the flavor, of course. The picture below is small size.

Premium Probiotic Supplement

 



















Vitality Max Labs' Probiotic Formula is designed to support a healthy stomach and digestive system this supplement has the most proven effective blend of living cultures, which include L.Acidophilus, L.Plantarum, L.Casei, Bacillus Subtillus, L.Rhamnosus, B.Longum and B.Breve.
Health starts from the inside, so it's important to use a probiotic formulated to top quality standards. Probiotic 5.06 Billion adds to your body's good bacteria and helps support digestive and immune health by supporting the 70% of your immune system found in the digestive tract. What makes this Probiotic superior over others is that each capsule is enteric-coated to help prevent probiotics from being damaged by stomach acid, allowing them to reach the small intestine for maximum effectiveness. It's a well known fact that intestinal flora often decreases as we get older. Decreased intestinal flora can cause your digestive system to function incorrectly, allowing important nutrients your body needs to pass through the digestive system without being broken down and absorbed.

Taking this Probiotic daily can help your body maintain a healthy functioning digestive system. This formula has been improved to provide higher potency and a more balanced spectrum of beneficial bacteria found in the human intestinal tracts. Over time, the digestive tracks and other parts of our system may become contaminated with toxins and our digestive systems and livers may fall short on eliminating effectively all of these from our bodies. This buildup of pollutants and wastes can alter our immune systems causing health problems such as stomach bloating, constipation, irregularity, weight gain, fatigue, poor complexion, excessive mucus, depression, poor concentration skills and poor body odor. This Probiotic formula is specifically designed to target, improve, revitalize and maintain optimal immune and digestive health.
