Food Fashion and Flow: Nobu Malibu (LV's LA)

Nobu Malibu (LV's LA)


There is something rejuvenating about sand, beautiful water and the breeze of ocean air. Nobu Malibu is a beautiful, posh restaurant located in the heart of Malibu.   A group of friends and I came here to celebrate the birthday of a close friend in our circle and what a great dinner destination this was! The birthday celebration was so much fun.  The location is breathtaking and the food is fresh and tasty, but be prepared to spend a small fortune for the ambiance and the tasty Japanese food that will play with your taste buds.

  The cozy couches and tables next to the ocean are definitely prime real estate here, so if you want to be seated there, you might fare better coming early or on a week day.

 We had a great spot with a view of the ocean and of course, lots of great people watching. When we saw Hugh Jackman walk by, we knew it was going to be an interesting evening:-)

 The food here is served tapas style in small plates, so we started with lobster tacos and this was definitely one of my favorites

 Lobster and shrimp tacos, brussel sprout salad

 Field Greens salad with Matsuhisa dressing

 This brussel sprout salad was tasty with a unique flavor, but one of my friends didn't care for it. I thought it was fresh tasting with robust flavor


 This Lychee passion fruit  refresher was sweet and delicious. So perfect with the complex flavors in the food. Yes the ladies in this photo  are looking right at me trying to figure out who I am, LOL


Yellowtail with Jalapeno


The first drink was so delicious, I decided to try the Acai punch. It did not look appetizing at all when they brought it to me, but it was very refreshing. It definitely tasted better than it looked
Shrimp tempura rolls


Okra tempura

The rock shrimp tempura is a must try. Definitely tasty and a large enough portion for sharing.


I snapped this image of the waves crashing from our table. Isn't this view amazing? 


We arrived early evening and it was low key and calm, but after it got dark the energy level here went into overdrive.

The vibe as the evening went on was LOUD, vibrant and energetic, especially in the bar. After dinner, we lingered in the bar to continue our celebration and met some interesting people. Definitely not a dull moment. We didn’t leave Nobu until close to their closing time because we were having such a great time and good conversation among strangers who became new friends.

 If you are after a quiet serene experience, come early. For high energy, come later in the evening. Lots of great people watching and a parking lot full of automotive eye candy:-)  I highly recommend reservations because it gets very busy here, especially on weekends. Dining here is a luxury experience, so when your toy size portions come out, just smile enjoy the ocean air and eat:-)

The food and drinks were so delicious! I should have given them my card, LOL. Those ladies were looking at me like: "Who is she?" People often ask me if I am in the entertainment industry when I'm out and about.

How brilliant this Nobu Malibu restaurant is!! This luxurious spot is worth visiting. Thank you my friend for sharing these photos and your experience at this place. Actually I will get engaged pretty soon and was looking for such a pretty seattle convention center with such great services.
