Katie and Elaine Taka Taka New York!

Last week while in New York for the photo shoot after a long day on set we decided to venture out for dinner. We stayed at The James Hotel in Soho (an awesome place to stay!) so there were many good places to eat within walking distance. A few blocks away we found somewhere called Taka Taka - Mexican Sushi & Japanese Tacos. We'd heard good things about this restaurant so we gave it a try.

First off - the drinks! Along with co-workers Kate and Jackie, we decided to get mojitos. Not too sure what they put in those drinks, but they were delicious - quite possibly one of the best mojito's any of us had ever had!

The cool thing about Taka Taka is that there was a conveyor belt with plates of sushi traveling throughout each table. Each plate had a number that you could reference from your menu to see what it was, then when the number you wanted went by you just grab and enjoy. On one of those nights where you are absolutely starved and just can not wait for the waitress to take your order, this would be the perfect place to go. The waitress just kept track of the numbers we grabbed off the conveyor belt and added them to our bill at the end.

The food combination's at this place were really interesting because they actually did combine some pretty unusual ingredients to create Mexican sushi and Japanese Tacos. We ended up eating tons of sushi and ordered lobster tacos. Everything was so good, and we left stuffed! This was probably the best meal we had all weekend - and the cheapest too! Although there is an endless number of restaurants to try in New York, Taka Taka is definitely somewhere we would go back to again and again!
