Happy Valentine’s Day!

We just returned from the best dinner we’ve had so far on our trip – and we’ve been travelling for 8 months soon! Today was Valentine’s Day and even though Danes aren’t huge on the whole Valentine’s thing (check out our comments on A Cruising Couple’s post on Valentine’s Day around the world) we gave in and splurged on a fancy dinner.

The other day we walked past a place called Sushiclub – and it looked sooo fancy. And when we decided to do something nice for Valentine’s we just knew we had to go there.

Here’s the thing. I love sushi. Lovelovelove! I could eat it for every meal everyday! Seriously. I actually pretty much did that when I lived in Berkeley for four months in 2012. I just can’t get enough!

And it’s been so long since we’ve had sushi. So there was no doubt about it: Sushiclub it was! And boy, we were well fed…

They had a very fancy (and expensive!) Valentine’s special which we didn’t get. It was just too much. So we went with the à la carte sushi and ended up ordering two rolls each.

We had the New York Roll (salmon, cucumber and avocado) and Crazy Roll (shrimp, avocado and creme cheese inside and salmon around it – yum!). They were both very tasty – but the Crazy Roll was definitely the best.

I have to say that this is the best sushi I’ve ever had. Sushi in Denmark is very expensive, so we normally go for the cheaper places where the sushi is nothing special. But this was something else. Somebody please send me a large check so I can go here everyday – thankyouverymuch. ;)

We just wanted to see the dessert and coffee menu because we wanted to enjoy a cappuccino in the beautiful restaurant. But when I spotted the creme brulée – there was nothing to do! I had to have it. Jonas was game.

The creme brulée was so good! and it actually came with a brownie as well. Not bad at all!

Yeah, you guessed it: we had the best night ever. The server was extremely polite – nearly too polite! He was observant and made us feel very special. He also applauded our choices from the menu “great choice, miss!“.

The restaurant was extremely neat. The chairs were so comfy and we sat right by the open window and enjoyed the warm evening air. People we dressed super fancy and a dj played great electronic music at just a perfect volume to still talk.

It’s all in the details and this was such a perfect dinner. It’s way more expensive than many other restaurants here in Playa del Carmen, but we got such a great experience here. We paid just over $1,000 pesos in total (including tips) – that’s around $75 USD.

Sushiclub is located on Calle 26 between Av. 5 and 10. Be sure to check it out when you’re in Playa del Carmen. It’s actually a chain and they have restaurants in Mexico, El Salvador, Argentina, Paraguay and Spain – check out their locations on their website.

    Hvis du på et tidspunkt vil have billig sushi, men ikke behøver den fancy restaurant del af oplevelsen, så tag på Sushi-Ken. De har to ruller for ens pris tirsdag og onsdag, og til prisen er det virkelig god sushi!! Vi spiste der tit som frokost før stranden, eller bestilte det som take-away på tømmermændsdage :D http://www.sushi-ken.com.mx/

      SÅ godt tip, Gitte! Jeg er vild med billig sushi! ;) Da jeg boede i Berkeley kostede en California Roll (min favorit) vist omkring $2,5 USD – så jeg spiste ofte (læs: hele tiden) 2 ruller som et måltid! Bum – $5 USD. Ikke dårligt! Haha. :) men man kan godt smage forskel, må jeg indrømme, når man får sushi et rigtig godt sted.

      Men! Jeg 100% for kvantitet over kvalitet, når det kommer til sushi. ;) Vi skal helt klart forbi Sushi-Ken! Det er sgu et godt Playa-tip. :) Er det snart tirsdag!? Haha. :)

    Jeg er faktisk ikke heeelt fan af sushi, men når jeg ser de her billeder, får jeg nu lyst til at forsøge mig med det igen ;) Hehe. Det er bare ærgerligt at det er så dyrt i København, som du siger, for så er det ikke lige noget jeg har lyst til at smide penge efter, medmindre jeg er helt sikker på at jeg kan li det :)
    Vores valentinsdag blev brugt først med Anders’ niece hele dagen (SÅ hyggeligt!), og så god mad, en gåtur og så et afsnit af House of Cards til sidst ;) En dejlig dag, som nok havde været ligeså dejlig, selvom det ikke havde været valentinsdag :P

      Whatwhatwhat! Hvordan kan man ikke være fan af sushi? :P Jeg kan slet, slet ikke få nok. Det er et problem… Du har ret! Det er virkelig dyrt i København at spise sushi. Og jeg kan sagtens forstå, at du ikke er game, når du nu ikke ved, om du kan lide det! Uh, måske skulle du prøve Nyu Sakura på Frederiksberg – de har running sushi, og det er ret godt til prisen! De har også andre retter, som kører rundt, hvis nu du ikke kan lide sushien :) Mener, det koster 135 kr. pr. person til aften. Et stort glas vand koster 15, så man kan slippe med 150 kr. pr. person :) Det gjorde vi ofte, da vi boede i København!
      Lyder som en hyggelig Valentine’s! Men som du siger, så havde det nok ikke så meget med dagen at gøre. Jeg er fuldt ud fan af, at man søger at hygge hver dag – eller i hvert fald ofte! Valentine’s eller ej… :)
