Cadillac Ranch


I finally went to Cadillac Ranch for the first time on my friend's birthday.  Before I entered the bar, a guard asked me if I came here because of Spy On Vegas.  I said I wasn't and wondered what kind of event was going on.  We sat at one of the bars and were asked if we wanted beer because it was free!  Spy On Vegas was giving out free Samuel Adams Octoberfest beers in honor of Okotberfest.  I could not refuse a free drink and celebrated in honor of the German celebration.  I also got a free shot of lemon drop - apparently this is a common shot that I never heard of until that night!  It tasted just like iced tea.  All the bartenders were nice, funny, and made my friend's birthday quite entertaining!

This place wasn't on my list of places to hang out at Town Square because I had heard their food was nothing to rave about.  I still tried an appetizer to confirm what I heard was true.  The birthday lady and I shared a chicken taquito dish garnished with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream.  I think the quality of ingredients was fair, but I gotta give credit for CR's creativity because the taquitos were Americanized (aka B I G enough to be an entree to feed two people or more). Instead of the traditional skinny appearance, the taquitos were a bit chubby like egg rolls!

Overall I enjoyed my time at CR because the drinks were free, service was great, and I liked the atmosphere of the bar!

Fat Boy

On my cheat day I ate at Fat Boy located on 4425 Stewart St Suite 107 (corner of Stewart St & Lamb Blvd).  It's a small fast food joint that serves hamburgers, pizzas, burritos, salads, smoothies (their syrups are homemade), milkshakes, and Mexican food:

Chencho Fries- a Fat Boy favorite!  These fries are topped with salsa verde, grilled onions, chopped chicken, and melted cheese:

Pastrami Boyger- beef patty topped with pastrami, mustard, grilled onions, pickles and mayo.  If you need a serious protein fix, this "boyger" is for you:

Fat Boy makes their meat patties daily and are never frozen.  Toppings and vegetables are prepared as needed, and buns are delivered to the restaurant fresh daily.  If you're feeling gluttonous, check out Fat Boy!

Flock & Fowl

If you're in the mood to eat a chicken dish, I highly recommend checking out Flock & Fowl.  This restaurant specializes in making Hainanese Chicken Rice.  It's a simple dish consisting of poached organic, free range chicken with marinated cucumbers and preserved mustard greens as seen in the photo below.  You may dip the chicken in ginger scallion sauce, house made sambal (chile), and house made soy sauce for more flavor/kick (not pictured).  Also, the sides to choose from are organic egg, Chinese sausage (lap cheung), chicken broth, or more chicken rice:

On the day we dined there, the Chicken & Poached Egg Congee was the special dish of the day.  Congeeis a rice porridge that's common throughout Asian countries.  It can be eaten plain, but usually comes with garnishes and sides:



We couldn't resist trying their steamed buns:

After I ate, I felt like I finished a home cooked meal, which is a rare feeling for me when eating at any restaurant.  Keep in mind this …
