Return to Ichiza

My friends came to visit here in Las Vegas from the OC last weekend. Since they were under 21, I had to think of places to bring them to during the night in a 21+ city.  One place I thought would be perfect to go to was Ichiza. My second visit to Ichiza with them was way better than my first!  I didn't feel horribly sick like last time and I got to enjoy the food and had a good time. I gotta say, if you go to Ichiza on a Saturday past midnight, you'll meet interesting characters... Anyways Bronsen and the girls ate a tofu steak. It was only a small block of tofu, but the flavors added to it was splendid! As for me, I finally got to eat their popular dish, Honey Toast! YAY:



This Japanese dessert is basically a half loaf of white bread. The center is hollowed out and then soaked with butter and honey and toasted. Then the bread is topped with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream. I feel the need to go on a hunt for honey toast in other restaurants now haha.

Kabuto

Eating at Kabuto was a wonderful dining and learning experience for my fiance and I.  If you are truly a sushi/Japanese food enthusiast and am willing to pay $$$ for what you get, you must come to Kabuto!

We each ordered some à la carte items and the Nigiri Omakase, which includes an appetizer, ten pieces of sushi nigiri, hand roll, and dessert.  Our chef was the general manager, he's such a knowledgeable man!  He told us about the distinctive features of each fish, what his job entails, and funny stories.  I'm so glad he was our chef!

Since we sat at the bar, we were up close to see how our sushi chef worked.  He wasn't in a rush and we got to see the artistic side of how sushi is made. This made me appreciate my experience at Kabuto much more:


















Last note: Finding this place was also a learning experience for us, you may get aggravated looking for it in the strip mall... Kabuto is there! AND it's important to make a reservation before coming in because Kabuto is a very …

Herbs & Rye

After driving pass by Herbs & Rye for many years I finally went in to see what all the hype was about this place.  They serve classic cocktails that were popular during the Prohibition Era and before that time like the Gothic Age (unknown-1865) and Golden Age (1865-1900):

Here's an example of of some of the drinks:

I loved all the drinks they made, wasn't disappointed with any of them:


Herbs & Rye also serves Italian food like flatbreads, pasta, and  they're known for the steaks they cook, I'll try some next time!  I only had the appetite to drink:

I really enjoyed my time here especially the atmosphere of a "speakeasy feel".  They get busy during the weekends so if you plan to dine in, make a reservation!
