Lotus of Siam

Lotus of Siam is a Thai restaurant that I've always wanted to go to since high school. There were previous attempts of going there, but it was always closed! This time I finally planned going there by checking their open hours. If you see the restaurant from the outside, it looks a bit plain, but the interior is opposite, far from plain! I felt comfortable being there.


Since me and Reggie had never been to Lotus of Siam before, we couldn't decide what to try. Our waitress was kind enough to give a list of recommendations and since there wasn't a lot of vegetarian items, she said she'd make our foods meat-free! We shared an appetizer consisting of tofu, green onion, cilantro, red onions, and cucumber. The spiciness of this salad was a delight:


We also shared a meal of Drunken Noodles with Shrimp. The Drunken Noodles were greasily full of flavor, I'm glad our waitress made this recommendation:

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:
