Japanese restaurant comes to Eureka Spring’s

Asparagus Guacamole Roll at Mountain Sushi Japanese Restaurant in Eureka Springs

Mountain Sushi Japanese Restaurant

In the old Subway building in Eureka Springs a new Japanese Restaurant has opened serving Asian Fusion Japanese cuisine. The restaurant is Mountain Sushi and it has quickly become one of our favorite lunch places. The other night we decided to try dinner. We started with an Asparagus and Guacamole Roll and OMG, what a mouthful of flavor. We had Chicken Tempura and Chicken Tempura Fajita for our main entrees and found them to be excellent.

We’ve tried a number of other dishes for lunch and have not found one we didn’t like. For lunch we usually get a Bento box (what a deal!). The Bento box gives you the entree (I love the Teriyaki Salmon), stir fried veggies, rice, salad or soup, and you can inexpensively add on an appetizer, which we usually do. We even tried the Spam Roll once (very good).

A passion for cooking

The owner, Andy Yang, has a passion for cooking and had been looking to open his own Japanese Restaurant in Eureka Springs. His family already owns a restaurant in town and this is his venture out on his own. One of the things he plans on doing is a monthly international roll. The Asparagus and Guacamole Roll was his Mexican take. He plans on an Alfredo roll, Greek roll and others and we will be going in to try them all.

Read what he wrote on his Facebook page about one of his new dishes. “In celebration of Spring, our newest creation is here!. The Shrimp Tempura Fruit Roll. It has shrimp tempura, cream cheese and mango on the inside. Banana and tempura flakes on the outside topped with Unagi sauce. It’s decorated with a fruit salad dressed in our mandarin orange sesame ginger dressing. ONLY $8.95!!!!” Yum, I think I’ll jump in the car and head out to Mountain Sushi right now.

When you are in Eureka Springs, let us know and we’ll guide you to the restaurant. You might also want to checkout their Facebook fan page. And if you need some accommodations to sleep off all that food, give us a call.

Moist Chocolate Pistachio Cake

June 14th, 2013

Chocolate Pistachio Cake

At our Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast we love to  serve our guests dessert for breakfast and we wanted to share our Moist Chocolate Pistachio Cake recipe with you. It’s one of our favorites and we’ve found if you slightly heat the cake before serving, it adds a subtle richness to the taste.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package plain white cake mix; (18.25 oz)
  • 1 package pistachio instant pudding mix; (3.4 oz)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder; (we use Wilbur Chocolate)
  • vegetable oil for misting pan
  • flour for dusting the pan

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly mist a 12 cup Bundt pan with vegetable oil, then dust with flour. Shake out the excess flour. Sprinkle the pecans and chocolate chips evenly in the bottom of the pan. Set the pan aside.
  2. Place the cake mix, pudding mix, sugar. water, oil and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute. Stop the machine and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat 2 minutes more. The batter should look thick and smooth. Remove 1 cup of the batter to a small bowl. Mix the Wilbur’s Cocoa into the small bowl and stir until the mixture is well combined. Set aside.
  3. Pour the remaining batter into the prepared pan. Pour the chocolate batter over the top, trying to keep the chocolate batter away from the edges of the pan. Swirl the chocolate batter into the white batter using a dinner knife. Place the pan in the center of the oven.
  4. Bake the cake until it is golden brown and springs back when lightly pressed with your finger, 55 to 60 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and place it on a wire rack to cool for 20 minutes. Run a long, sharp knife around the edge of the cake and invert it onto a rack to cool completely, 20 minutes more.
  5. Optionally, pour some chocolate sauce over the cake.

Yield: 16 servings
Cook Time: 60 minutes
