Coffee

I realized I never did an entry on coffee before!  I enjoy the smell of coffee, it soothes and awakens me.  I can survive without drinking coffee for months unlike other people, but this doesn't mean I despise the drink.  Ever since I can remember, I always saw my dad drink coffee, day or night.  Somehow this might have caused me to rebel against drinking it regularly?  

In Las Vegas there's many coffee shops.  I always go to major chain coffee shops instead of small businesses.  I need to change that!  I guess I had a bad experience going to an unknown coffee shop once, it was obvious this place was imitating Starbucks.  Once I venture out more and find a nice local business I'll post an entry about it!

A coffee shop that I'm fond of is The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf across from UNLV.  I like it for its location, discounts offered to UNLV students (I'm an alumni though :-p), enough tables to merge for a study group, and my drinks are always made the way I like it!  I like ordering the Hazelnut coffee, if you prefer subtle flavored coffee, try this drink.

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:
