Sakari Sushi Lounge in Des Moines

For those that are Sushi lovers this review is for you. YOU must try Sakari Sushi Lounge in Des Moines on Ingersoll. Not a super big place and have been told that on Friday and Saturday nights it gets fun with the crowds.  I have eaten at several Sushi places in Des Moines and this ranks up there as a place to go.   Below I tried the following rolls and loved the Snake.  

  • Snake- Spicy Tempura Shrimp, Avocado, Scallions, Topped with Red and White Tuna.
  • Alaskan- Spicy Alaskan Crab Mix, Cucumber, Topped with Alaskan Salmon
  • California Roll - Cucumber, Avocado, Crab

Smokey D's Ribs and Burnt Ends

Are you interested in the best barbecue in Des Moines area?  You should visit Smokey D's right off 2nd Ave by the Harley Davidson Dealership.  I have enjoyed coming here for quite sometime and have never had any surprises.    I have tried the baby back ribs, sausage, brisket, pulled pork, and burnt ends.   One of favorite choices of meat is the burnt ends.    The burnt ends are chunks of brisket ends that are packed with deep smoke flavor, dry rub, and a unique texture.  Another favorite is the Baby Back Ribs.  Perfectly cooked with a little tug off the bone.  You have many choices in sides and recommend that you step outside the box.   My favorite side by far is the potato casserole and cucumber onion slaw.  The spud sticks, beans, and tater chips are good too.  They do have several locations serving different items so check out their website for a menu near you.  Very good.
