Cheesecake Factory

The Cheesecake Factory is one of my favorite restaurant chains ever! The reason why I adore this place is that they serve foods from different parts of the US and ethnic foods. I  l o v e  the quality of the ingredients used in their foods.

For our appetizer we tried the Vietnamese Spring Rolls - made with rice paper rolled around asparagus, Shiitake mushrooms, carrots,
rice noodles, green onion, cilantro and shrimp:



My meal was The Incredible Grilled Eggplant Sandwich - comes with roasted red peppers, red onion, melted Mozzarella and garlic aioli on a toasted bun. The name did fit my meal:


Mikey had the Orange Chicken - deep fried pieces of chicken breast covered in a sweet and spicy orange sauce with white rice and vegetables:


Bronsen had Garlic Noodles - made with spaghettini, shrimp, asparagus, Shiitake mushrooms, tomatoes, and parmesan in garlic sauce:

Last and not least, we got cheesecakes! To the left is Adam's Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple - creamy cheesecake swirled with caramel, peanut butter, Butterfingers
and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I'm not a big fan of Reese's, but after having a few bites of this, I changed my mind! The peanut butter cup flavor came out well with the cheesecake and cream.
To the right is my favorite, the Low Carb Cheesecake with Strawberries - graham walnut crust with strawberries and whipped cream:


If the cheesecakes from Cheesecake Factory were healthy, I'd totally live off of them! If only...

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:
