Viva Las Arepas

After a night of drinking, my friends and I all decided to go to Viva Las Arepas (formerly known as I Love Arepas) along Las Vegas Blvd.  Arepas are basically a flat, round, and soft patties made out of cornmeal, which are grilled, making them crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.  They can be stuffed with beef, chicken, ham, cheese, beans, shrimp, and many more. 






Eating here reminded me there's a lot more Latin American food out there other than Mexican food.  Its a bit hard though to try other cuisines when majority of Latin American restaurants in Las Vegas are Mexican.  I guess I have to venture more!

My Thanksgiving

Finally here are my pics from Thanksgiving!  This year I had lunch with my parents then dinner with my friends.  Despite eating little of each dish and going to the gym in between meals, I stayed super full until the next day!  












Social House

I had went to Social House located inside Crystals for my friend's birthday dinner.  Instead of everyone ordering their own entrées, they had prepared a multi-course dinner (Omakase) for our party.  From what I remember, they gave us a lot of cilantro garnished foods.  
Here's some of the foods we got, the ones not pictured were Thai beef salad, pork ribs, sushi, and miso cod - my personal favorite!  If you've had a previous bad experience with eating fish, I dare you to give it one more chance by trying their miso cod.  This fish was cooked perfectly because it was seasoned nicely and soo soft, but not to the point of being mushy.





FYI, I recommend eating at Social House if you're ballin with money ;D

Kyara Japanese Tapas

Kyara Japanese Tapas was my number one pick to have a little dinner with my friends during my birthday weekend.  I wouldn't have remembered this place if it weren't for them.  A friend had suggested to eat Japanese food and another suggested to eat Spanish tapas.  Since I like both foods, Kyara came to mind!  I knew Kyara would be a great pick because their foods are served in small servings and since the prices are reasonable, my friends and I could order a lot and try each other's dishes:
