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!

Stockholm Trip '17

Over a month ago, my husband and I embarked on our first trip to Europe!!! We were there for a couple weeks and spent our time exploring the capital cities of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.  The two things I found most captivating was the art, especially the architecture, and the food!  Our trip started in Oslo, Norway and Copenhagen, Denmark (check out the links at the end of the post for more details) and ended our Euro trip in Stockholm, Sweden:

AB Café Never in my whole life did I eat pastries and drink coffee every morning until I arrived in Europe! A lot of pastries I had were hearty which left me wanting to have at least one daily.  In the neighborhood near where we were staying at was AB Café.  This is a small, cozy cafe where you can have a small bite to eat and drink before you start your day.  Pictured below is their Key Lime Sandwich, latte, and a bullar (sweet bun).  It was a nice fika!

Japan Trip '16: Sushi Bar Yasuda

I had to save my best dining experience in Japan for last at Sushi Bar Yasuda!  When my husband and I entered the small, intimate restaurant, we saw Chef Yasuda standing alone at the bar.  He had no facial expression (maybe he was getting into the zone?).  As everyone sat down, he was preparing our foods and began talking to us in a calm, friendly manner.  
As the night progressed, we all were having interesting conversations with Chef Yasuda from his life back in New York (he was the former owner of Sushi Yasuda), sushi making techniques (and secrets!), him getting to know a bit about his patrons, and so on. I had told him that we were from Las Vegas, NV and he made fun of how it was impossible to get great sushi to the desert.  Well, after eating my omakase meal, I would have to agree with him!

Now onto the food, if you haven't recognized him yet, Chef Naomichi Yasuda is featured in CNN's Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown episode in Tokyo, Japan.  If you've seen this epis…
