Aces & Ales

I've noticed every time I ask a friend who recently turned 21 (or close to it) if they like beer they say no in a disgusting matter! Its either they've a) drank only domestic beer or b) are stuck in that phase where they just want to get drunk fast. I wish I could get my young friends out of that phase by bringing them to Aces & Ales to enjoy the taste of beer. Its a great place for beer enthusiasts located on the east side of Las Vegas. A variety of craft beers are served here - basically beers that are made by small, independent brewers with only traditional brewing ingredients such as malt, hops, yeast and water, and brewed with traditional brewing methods (zooass.com/bar/glossary).

From the huge board that listed the craft beers offered, I chose the Dogfish Head Sah'tea - a modern update of ninth century Finnish proto-beer.  This smooth beer was marvelous! My taste buds could feel the chai, berries, spices, and beer blend well together.  I'm getting thirsty just thinking about it!


Food wise, I was impressed what was on their menu because there was also a variety of foods.  I wasn't really hungry, so I just sampled the sweet potatoes fries which were made perfectly crisp!

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:
