Asian Treats

Hue Thai
5115 Spring Mountain Rd.
Las Vegas, NV 89146


On 7/2 I finally reunited with Michelle, my friend since middle school. She suggested for us to eat at Hue Thai, a South East Asian restaurant. We ate here a few years ago and I still remember I ordered the Curry Goat, which my body couldn't handle, but that's a different story!

Their menu has so many items, that it took us about 10 minutes to decide what we wanted to eat! They're known for their Banh mi sandwiches (influenced by the Vietnamese and French), but I wasn't in the mood for eating sandwiches. I'm used to going to an Asian restaurant to eat rice or noodles...sorry I'll try them next time!

For my appetizer, I chose Banh Beo Tom Tuoi (Steamed Rice Cakes with Shrimp):



I ate a generous serving of Pho Ga (Chicken Rice Noodle). I love how you can put as many garnishes as you want to your pho like bean sprouts, basil, and cilantro:

Long Life Vegetarian Restaurant
4130 S Sandhill Rd # A4
Las Vegas, NV 89121


A favorite place that Bronsen and I have been to many times is Long Life Vegetarian Restaurant, located on East Flamingo Rd. and Sandhill Rd. They serve fake meats of chicken, beef, pork, and real fish so they're not strictly vegetarian! The first thing to see when entering are their parrot cichlid fishes. They always look like they're smiling =)



Bronsen's favorite appetizer, Spring Onion Pancakes:




He also ordered Egg Foo Young with shrimp. The gravy is light and tasty, not thick and salty like in other Chinese restaurants I've been to:




I ordered a beef and vegetable dish (the beef looks so real!):




They make the fluffiest brown rice I've ever tasted:

Maui & Oahu Trip '15

Earlier in July my husband I spent a couple weeks in Hawai'i.  We went to Maui (my first time there) then to O'ahu.  While in Hawai'i I got to see the differences and similarities between Maui and O'ahu.  The one thing both islands had in common was that there was delicious food everywhere!  Here are some of my favorite places we grubbed at and interesting foods we saw:
Jack's Inn When we arrived in Maui, we were craving some local food so we asked a few locals what were good local spots to eat at near the airport.  Locals were recommending Jack's Inn so we went there for breakfast.  It's a small diner with a simple menu:

I chose the Crazy Omelette with meats that the Hawaiian locals love- 2 eggs with Spam, Vienna Sausage, Portuguese sausage, and green onions!  Despite the variety of meats, I'm glad that one meat didn't overpower the other:

Japan Trip '16: Kanazawa and Tokyo

Continuing on from my last post, Japan Trip '16: Osaka, when we left Osaka, we travelled up north to Kanazawa then travelled to Tokyo where we stayed for the remainder of our trip.

We made a stop at Kyoto to do some sightseeing and snacked from bento boxes before we went on our trek:


The Japanese make cute stuff out of everything.  Yes, even food.  Kawaii desu ne:


After a long walk seeing the Arashiyama Bamboo Groove, we saw Taiyaki for the first time!  This fluffy fish-shaped cake is made out pancake or waffle batter and is usually filled with green tea, custard, or red bean paste (from sweetened adzuki beans) as seen here:


Hacchoya was the first restaurant we ate at when we arrived in Kanazawa.  This was a very nice and chic izakaya (Japanese tavern).  When we arrived it was crowded with business people dining and had a smoky atmosphere.  I hate smoke, but it won't stop me from trying new foods!  Other than eating, be sure to try the local sakes that Hacchoya has to offer.  He…

Fat Boy

On my cheat day I ate at Fat Boy located on 4425 Stewart St Suite 107 (corner of Stewart St & Lamb Blvd).  It's a small fast food joint that serves hamburgers, pizzas, burritos, salads, smoothies (their syrups are homemade), milkshakes, and Mexican food:

Chencho Fries- a Fat Boy favorite!  These fries are topped with salsa verde, grilled onions, chopped chicken, and melted cheese:

Pastrami Boyger- beef patty topped with pastrami, mustard, grilled onions, pickles and mayo.  If you need a serious protein fix, this "boyger" is for you:

Fat Boy makes their meat patties daily and are never frozen.  Toppings and vegetables are prepared as needed, and buns are delivered to the restaurant fresh daily.  If you're feeling gluttonous, check out Fat Boy!
