Twenty Four Hours away at Tulalip Resort Casino – Total Dining Experience

 

Tulalip Resort Casino’s Journeys East is only one of several restaurants to try at Tulalip, the options include Tulalip Bay, Blackfish, Cedars Cafe, The Draft, Eagles Buffet and Canoes Carvery. I’ve indulged in at least half of these dining spots and recommend them all. Dining at Tulalip Resort Casino ranges from casual to fine. With so many restaurants to choose from there is a cuisine to satisfy everyone be they Foodie or Gourmand.

On this trip we just had the most wonderful culinary experience at Journeys East during our 24 hours at Tulalip Resort Casino. Dinner for six was extraordinary and for a lover of Asian cuisine you will be in dining heaven. The food was the freshest and utterly amazing.

We sampled the Traditional pot stickers and dumplings to start. Moved onto some spectacular sushi rolls that were as much a work of art as a bite to eat. Being seafood lovers we followed with some superbly prepared fish and shellfish. The  steamed Halibut was outstanding and definitely gets my vote of favourite dish of the night.

The dishes paired well with the chilled Sake, and the Sparkling Sake I tried for the first time was a surprise, and the perfect choice for the spicy bursts of flavour in every bite.
