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 …

Japan Trip '16: Kanazawa and Tokyo

Continuing on from my last post, Japan Trip '16: Osaka, when we left Osaka, we travelled up north to Kanazawa then travelled to Tokyo where we stayed for the remainder of our trip.

We made a stop at Kyoto to do some sightseeing and snacked from bento boxes before we went on our trek:


The Japanese make cute stuff out of everything.  Yes, even food.  Kawaii desu ne:


After a long walk seeing the Arashiyama Bamboo Groove, we saw Taiyaki for the first time!  This fluffy fish-shaped cake is made out pancake or waffle batter and is usually filled with green tea, custard, or red bean paste (from sweetened adzuki beans) as seen here:


Hacchoya was the first restaurant we ate at when we arrived in Kanazawa.  This was a very nice and chic izakaya (Japanese tavern).  When we arrived it was crowded with business people dining and had a smoky atmosphere.  I hate smoke, but it won't stop me from trying new foods!  Other than eating, be sure to try the local sakes that Hacchoya has to offer.  He…

Elixir

When I heard that my friends wanted to meet up at the new local lounge, Elixir to watch a football game, I assumed this place would be like some neighborhood bars - a lot of drinks, but with subpar food... I was completely wrong!  Elixir had modern decor:


Interesting drinks:

And foods that are made in-house including the breads, and their meats are never frozen:

If you're looking for a different bar to watch a sports game, I recommend going to Elixir!  This lounge has a nice, chill atmosphere.  Also, their Happy Hour Specials have a lot to offer (there are new items that aren't in their site yet).
