SOBEWFF: Mix It Up With Morimoto and Robert Irvine Doing Karaoke (VIDEO)

Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto hosted his first late-night SOBEWFF event last night, and it was a hit -- a part pool party, part late night market.

Asian delicacies from top Miami restaurants were served, poolside karaoke with a cameo by a Food Network stars happened, along with flowing sake cocktails and Morimoto made everyone plates of sushi. In fact, he never stopped working the line. When Robert Irvine showed up, he fed him and took a few pictures, but immediately got back to business.

The only line in the place was for Morimoto, but everyone was happy to wait. An Iron Chef was personally preparing your plate of sushi!

Aside from Morimoto, top bites of the night were served by Richard Hales of Blackbrick, Timon Balloo of Sugarcane and Mama Pai of Khong River House.
