Casa Di Amore

On Valentine's Day, my fiancé surprised me by bringing to Casa di Amore.  The place gave off a vibe of a different time (as their slogan says, "Vegas the way is used to be!").  Pictures of old casinos and major Las Vegas entertainers from the past like the Rat Pack and Elvis Presley were displayed everywhere.  Even the live music of jazz, Italian, and traditional pop set off a romantic vibe.

I got the Mi Amore special and my fiancé got the Bella Notte:


I chose the Mi Amore because I wanted to try the Chicken Rollentine (the way our waiter described Chicken Rollentine really persuaded me to try it!).  Slices of chicken are dusted with wheat flour or bread crumbs, covered in ricotta cheese, seasonings, rolled up and baked.  My chicken was full of flavor!  There was so much I couldn't finish it all.  The side of the twice baked potato was very soft and and also full of flavor due to the cheese, I enjoyed every bite of it!


This is the Seafood Pesto from the Bella Notte special.  I remember tasting the seafood way more than the pesto sauce.  It was a bit overwhelming for me maybe because I ate too much seafood that week:


Overall Casa di Amore was a lovely place to dine at.  This is a great place to go to when you're on a date with your significant other!

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!
