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:

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!

Flock & Fowl

If you're in the mood to eat a chicken dish, I highly recommend checking out Flock & Fowl.  This restaurant specializes in making Hainanese Chicken Rice.  It's a simple dish consisting of poached organic, free range chicken with marinated cucumbers and preserved mustard greens as seen in the photo below.  You may dip the chicken in ginger scallion sauce, house made sambal (chile), and house made soy sauce for more flavor/kick (not pictured).  Also, the sides to choose from are organic egg, Chinese sausage (lap cheung), chicken broth, or more chicken rice:

On the day we dined there, the Chicken & Poached Egg Congee was the special dish of the day.  Congeeis a rice porridge that's common throughout Asian countries.  It can be eaten plain, but usually comes with garnishes and sides:

We couldn't resist trying their steamed buns:

After I ate, I felt like I finished a home cooked meal, which is a rare feeling for me when eating at any restaurant.  Keep in mind this …
