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:

Hana Hou

During the last week of May, Bronsen and I went to Hawaii (my third trip) for vacation / family time / to eat! From my experience so far from eating Hawaiian local food, it consist an influential mix of traditional Hawaiian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, Polynesian, Portuguese, and American foods. If you're fond of any those ethnic foods like me, its like food heaven in Hawaii! We flew on our favorite airline, Hawaiian Airlines . Bronsen was hoping to get a nice meal than a snack because he always has a big appetite. His wish came true, the complimentary meal came with pasta with vegetables and vinegar dressing: and a big brownie!: Hawaiian Airlines going green: One night I was craving for saimin (ramen) noodles and spam musubi , a popular Hawaiian snack simply made with a block of rice, topped with a slice of spam, and wrapped in dried seaweed. Unfortunately, you can't see the noodles, its covered by the pork. I think there was more meat than the n
