A Night Out With Jessica

On our night out, we first went to Ichiza.  Every time I come here it takes a while for me to decide what to eat because their menu is huge! Its on a piece of paper of course and all over the walls... These are some of the foods we shared:

                          
                                              

 

Spider Roll


Okra with nattō - its soybeans fermented in Bacillus subtilis (good bacteria).  After I told the waitress I wanted to try this, she insisted me to not try it because other customers who have ordered it cannot stand the smell and don't even eat it.  I told her that it was alright and was willing to try it.  She said, "Ok..." reluctantly and left.  When the okra with nattō came it didn't smell odd to me.  As I ate the soybeans, it felt like sticky spider webs were on it, but it was still good to me.  So I proved my waitress wrong!


Later we went to Tea Station and both got flavored milk drinks.  To the left is the Taro Milk Drink and to the right is the Honey Dew Milk Drink.  Until next year Jess =P

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:
