Sushi + Drinks = Good Times!





I couldn't figure what I wanted to do for my birthday for the longest time! I had a few ideas and just decided for Bronsen to make me sushi as his present to me. No big party, no fancy restaurant, no going out to a club/lounge..I just wanted my birthday celebration to be simple this year. A couple hours before we got home from school, he somewhat surprised me saying that a few of our UNLV friends were coming over. I was fine with that just as long as I got to eat enough sushi! I was so glad our friends came, I enjoyed my birthday way more! I want to thank my sushi chef again for making awesome sushi =)

As for where we got the sushi grade fish, we got it from Pacific Seafood in Henderson, located on 1647 W. Warm Springs Rd. The sign of the tiny store doesn't say Pacific Seafood, it says, "Fresh Seafood." I found it a bit odd, but when you look at some of the products inside the store, there are "Pacific Seafood" stickers labeled on them. Pacific Seafood mainly sells Japanese and Hawaiian products and seafood of course!

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!

Dirt Dog

If you are a hot dog fiend, I highly suggest checking out Dirt Dog! They specialize in gourmet bacon-wrapped hot dogs.  They're originally from LA, recently opened shop here in Las Vegas and planning to open another location on The Strip:
