Yelp Denver's October Secret Supper at Blue Sushi Sake Grill
For the first time ever, Yelp Denver hosted a sushi dinner at Blue Sushi Sake Grill for the October installment of the Secret Supper Club series. Elated to finally have a sushi spot as the secret destination, Denver Yelpers were eager to try the plethora of dishes lined up for the evening.
A cocktail session was in order for the first 30 minutes of the evening. Rounds of complimentary cocktail, the Kyoto Connection Signature Martini were passed along with a unique creation of Edamame Hummus on toasted crotinis and coconut chicken bites. Vicki P describes the martini as "smooth and delicious and makes an excellent signature cocktail for Blue Sushi Saki Grill. Of the two passed starters, I liked the edamame hummus best." Guests schmoozed as they sipped and noshed until the first round of dinner was served.
To start off the zesty and fresh meal, shared plates of Sapporo Steamed Mussels and Spicy Edamame were served and enjoyed by 60 happy and hungry guests. Kim M sugguests, "If you like spicy food, get the spicy edamame. Boy did that have a kick!" To follow, house salads tided us over before the delicious rounds of nigiri and sashimi. Dressing choices of carrot ginger or wasabi soy livened up the salads! Bonnie C enjoyed the house salad with the Wasabi soy dressing "full of fresh leafy greens and the dressing and would love to have a bottle of it at home."
Next up was a piece of the Itchy Seabass: baked salmon, spicy crab, serrano, cilantro, ponzu, a piece of the Cherry bomb: tuna, serrano, rice tempura, spicy sauce, ponzu, and two Blue Balls, yes Blue Balls: Tempura fried, spicy crab, inari. "Itchy Seabass – YUM!!" Elizabeth P exclaims. "Melt in your mouth Seabass over crab with no rice. Definitely a highlight for me"
Then for the rainbow of deliciousness: the third course. A beautiful spread of Ceviche-style hirame, Kampachi crudo, Mango hama, Ringo Maguro, Truffle sake, Chili hama sashimi was presented to each guest. Demitri R describes the Chili Hama that "melted on the tongue then hit you with jalapeño, and the "Kampichi was delicate but well put together." But it was the mango Hama that him "Hama Hama for more."
And "to top it off, the Grill sent us home with a lovely gift box full of delightful goodies and lots of coupons. What a wonderful added surprise!" Jenn B "felt very well taken care of all evening long, and that extra gesture went way above and beyond. Thanks very much, Blue Sushi Sake Grill! We will be back!"
