Bahama Breeze

For lunch I went to Bahama Breeze for the first time with my friends.  I was a bit skeptical about eating here because from my experience eating at a few nice looking restaurants in the area of Flamingo Rd. and Paradise Rd., their foods weren't that great.  I hope Bahama Breeze would be different... It was different, the food was actually way better than I expected!

When it comes to Caribbean food, I'm not knowledgeable about it mainly because there's not a lot of places that serve this cuisine here in Las Vegas =(  I only know that Caribbean food consists of: seafood, the popular Jamaican jerk seasoning, and its fusion of African and some European cuisine.

For appetizers, we tried the Fire-Roasted Jerk Shrimp - the shrimp are soaked in a garlic-thyme butter and comes with warm Cuban bread.  The flavor of the shrimp was overwhelming and addicting!  I just wanted to keep ordering more!

I decided to try this combination meal of Key West Tacos with seafood chowder - comes with flour tortillas filled with sautéed tilapia, avocados, tomato salsa, and crisp iceberg lettuce with ancho-chili sour cream:


The tilapia was indeed fresh.  I finally believed in the sign they had at front saying along the lines of only serving fresh fish here.  The sauce and garnishes went well with the fish tacos.  As for the seafood chowder, I was satisfied with it because it was quite creamy and had a lot of seafood in it.

This place is great for big parties and it so nice and spacious inside and out.  I'll come back for sure for a special occasion!

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 …

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!
