One of the many things that we love about living on The Kenai, Alaska’s Playground is that we can take so many different kinds of road trips and experience a totally different landscape. Tonight, we ventured out from our office in Soldotna, Alaska and headed down to Homer, Alaska for a walk on the beach. Hoping to grab a bite to eat and a good sunset, we were certainly in for a treat.
After stopping at the beach in Ninilchik, Alaska to take in the gorgeous mountain views, we arrived in Homer at about 7:00pm. We pulled into the overlook area right as you head into town and to our surprise, were greeted by this sunning view overlooking the bay. The views of the snow-capped mountains weren’t too shabby either! 😉
We took a peaceful drive down the Homer Spit followed by a pre-dinner walk on the beach. Campfire pits and picnic tables have a way of bringing out the camping-bug in all of us! Summer is right around the corner, woo hoo!
After soaking in the crisp, cool air from the beach we headed up to Wasabi’s Restaurant for dinner. Located off East End Road, Wasabi’s serves a mix of American and Asian style cuisine with amazing sushi and fresh caught Alaskan seafood. We love coming here because they also serve a lot of favorites that we find in can find in Hawaii, including poke and ahi tuna. The sunset from the parking lot was nothing short of amazing upon arrival.
Upon arrival we soaked in the beautiful views and chilled water. Such a modern and relaxing environment.
Per usual, we were brought out edamame right away and we were sure to dig right in (hence, the photo of a half eaten dish – sorry). 😉
First up, it was necessary to start off with a cold beverage. They have a great drink menu here with a great assortment of local favorites and organic choices as well. First up was a glass of Chardonnay from Bear Creek Winery, a local winery in Homer.
And a Lemon Drop? Sure, why not! They make the best! Do you see those amazing views out the window? Yeah, Wasabi’s has struck gold with their location for SURE.
After hearing the waitress read off the specials, we started with the sautéed peppers for an appetizers. She said, “only one out of 13 are spicy, so it’s kind of like playing Russian Roulette.” Obviously we were sold!
And for dinner, we both stuck to the special as well; bison burger with homemade fries. So much deliciousness!
After eating everything on our plates and not taking home a single shred of leftovers, we were ready to roll ourselves home and climb into our pajamas. Thank you to Wasabi’s Restaurant for the excellent food and superior service. Never a disappoint when visiting this great place!
