Lake Havasu Adventure

197 miles north west of Surprise, Az there is a place where something amazing can be found. The London Bridge!!! Husband and I took a nice little drive out there recently and were impressed with how interesting this place is. We definitely want to go back again soon with our friends... perhaps for a birthday weekend blowout or something... hum I'm sure I just heard the "Think Tank" start up. lol.

Anyway, just over the bridge there is this fabulous restaurant called Shuegrue's. Since we've only ever been there one time I hardly call my review of the place a set in stone recommendation. Perhaps you can consider this a mild nudge to try something new? The atmosphere was quiet and pleasant with a very accomodating staff. We enjoyed really good food and a superb view of the bridge and the water.

Husband and I started off with the seared ahi tuna appetizer. For the $14 price tag I say what we got was totally worth it. The slices of fish were very close to the size of a credit card in length and width and they were probably about half an inch thick. Perfectly seasoned and seared so much so that the only sauce needed was a pad of wasabi and a house made soy sauce. It was so good that the entire dish was devoured by the time my mind thought to snap a picture to post. So... this is all that was left.

Our lunch entree was the grilled coconut talapia with a mango salsa and wild rice. Absolutely refreshing to have such a simple dish executed so well that we even might drive back up there just to eat it again. A lot of places get so fancy with sauces and cooking methods that take away from the flavors of the food that make them so wonderful to begin with. Luckily for us, Shuegrue's knows how to do it right!

If you're in the area and haven't visited Lake Havasu City yet I strongly suggest that you do! There's something about that place that just exudes a 'good time' kind of feeling. You just can't be upset in a place like that!!

If you've been to a neat place similar to Lake Havasu, I'd like to hear about it. Leave the information as a comment below with any restaurant or actvity recommendations!
