Junz, Parker CO

My Yelp Review:

My cousin works here so I might be slightly influenced, but Junz is a pretty interesting fusion (Japanese & French!?!) restaurant and according to him, a lot of hot chicks dine here at night (lol). We met the owner that night and he seemed really breezy, gave us free drinks and appetizers.

My cousin still ordered a lot though; the boys enjoyed the “Japanese Style Chicken Wings with Ginger Soy Marinade” a lot, us girls thought they were just OK. We didn’t like large wings, prefer them smaller. Then there was this Tuna salad app on mashed avocados, with some artichokes, the tuna was definitely raw. Not my cup of tea but it had a very nice presentation. Fried Calamari and Fried Shrimps were both tasty but not that different from each other. I made sure I got my Yellowtail Collar, as always, such a dish never disappoints! The chef also whipped up some so-called “New Style Salmon Sashimi” for our table, so it’s not just sliced raw fish, more like a fish version of Beef Tataki. But it still failed to turn me into a sashimi lover.

Then our jaws almost dropped when we saw two big plates of sushi, can’t even recall what they were but we thought we were getting full with the appetizers already. Anyway, sushi was good, but a lot of them were spicy, guess that’s what customers prefer nowadays…

Ready for the main course? Cuz ordered both steak dishes (Rib-Eye Steak and Filet Mignon), they were just OK. The boys again seemed to enjoy the crab mashed potatoes, but I thought they were on the watery side. For us girls, he picked Chilean Sea Bass (on Risotto) and Sword Fish (on Lobster Cream Fettuccini), both were very very good. One thing we all unanimously loved was the mushroom sauce on top of our steaks and fish, it really transformed the meat. My Sea Bass was a thick cut that’s golden fried yet very juicy inside, you just can’t get enough of it! Cousin told me the secret, orang-y sauce was a reduction of boiling a lot of fish bones, and to the owner, it’s like little drops of gold, so precious (and so delicious) that he doesn’t usually grant second helpings. The sauce definitely peaked the taste of the fish. I was surprised how well the fish paired with Risotto.

Would love to come back and try more dishes on the account that Cuz doesn’t order too much food, just enough so we could savor it all!

老表今天休假,邀大头和我去他现在打工的餐厅试鲜。 好久没去Aurora,都不知道要开哪条路。千挑万选结果上了要收费的470公路。不过那一路可真叫顺畅啊!先到了表哥家和胖小子侄子玩了一会儿。小家伙越来越结实了,幸好看到我们没哭。把他放到Tracy妈妈家之后我们又开了20多分钟才到餐厅。沿路那个叫空旷啊,怎么说米国地大物博呐。Aurora算是正在开发的新区,房子多商场也多,到处都是生机啊。

点完菜都八点了,多亏了表哥的同事醒目先给咱们上了个前菜,否则肯定饿昏过去!这个也不知道叫什么,美奶兹拌虾之类的吧,一小口一小口吃还满滋味的:

等寿司的时候看了看餐厅,还算有格调。听表哥说到晚上有很多美女光临。今晚隔壁几桌就有俩金发俄罗斯女郎!

一如往常他们夫妇俩点菜多到收不了手。他们男生都很喜欢而我们女生觉得一般般的鸡翅膀:

这个朝鲜蓟(Artichoke)生吞拿牛油果酱沙拉看起来漂亮,可我不太爱吃。跟热狗同一个原理:搭配多姿多彩但味道融合不到一起。

椒盐虾和鱿鱼就没啥特别啦:

照烧鱼嘴巴,我很喜欢的一道菜,外脆里嫩,极品呀:

新潮三文鱼刺身,大概就是潮在有这么多佐料吧,跟手卷差不多了:

看这两盘寿司就证明我之前没说错吧,四个人怎吃得下这么多!

不忙不忙,才轮到正餐呢!牛扒两式。表哥的是越熟越好:

大头的则是越生他越爱:

Junz的牛扒一般般,上面铺着的蘑菇还比较入味。

我们女生点鱼,本以为健康些,结果Tracy那份跟意面:

我的那份跟芝士饭。味道超好,可肚子已经很撑了。谁看得出来我这份是鲈鱼?口感超像鳕鱼,够肥美(即使打包回去第二天仍然很好吃!)听表哥说那个橙色只有一点点的浆汁是老板的精心配方,用一大堆各样的鱼骨熬上几小时的来的汁水,客人想要多点老板都不愿给的。简直比金子还矜贵!

甜品完全不是我的注意,芒果和紅豆口味的糯米茲雪糕,挺普通的:

虽然搞到挺晚的,今天确实够快活:
