Bread & Butter

My friends had invited my fiancé and I to try a new restaurant, Bread & Butter for breakfast.  I wanted to go, but I declined because I had to finish up on some studying.  Later on in the day, my fiancé asked if I wanted to go to Bread & Butter for dinner because our friends were going back there to eat!  Well I was convinced to go during my 'study break' since my friends were hardcore enough to go to Bread & Butter twice in one day.

We were all greeted by the owner Chris who told us to make ourselves at home.  He also told us that the foods here are made from scratch and the restaurant menu is not the same every day, so he likes to get feedback from his customers on the Bread & Butter's Facebook fan page to get ideas on what to make for future days/weeks... What a great concept!

We came on a 'customize your own grilled cheese sandwich' night.  The small menu had a variety of breads, cheeses, vegetables, and some meats to choose from.  I chose all the items I never had and haven't in awhile for my customized sandwich.  One of the vegetables I chose was alfalfa sprouts.  I was a bit afraid that it wouldn't pair well with my bread, sourdough waffles.  Surprisingly, the sprouts and sourdough waffles tasted way better together (with the help of cheese and other veggies) than I expected :]

Another interesting thing about this place is that they sell a variety of root beers.  There were brands I saw that I never heard of before.  My friends and I chose different brands (I got the Waialua Root Beer, it was subtle, yet sweeter than the others) and I could definitely taste the difference among the brands.

If I lived closer to Bread & Butter, I'd definitely come to this place more often!  I just need to make an excuse to go to Henderson/Anthem area sometime soon.

My customized grilled cheese sandwich: sourdough waffles, cheese ( I wish I remember which one I had!), and plenty of vegetables. 

An acorn squash soup - It was quite creamy!
Fresh desserts -  I didn't want to overindulge myself with these treats, they were awesome!

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: Sushi Bar Yasuda

I had to save my best dining experience in Japan for last at Sushi Bar Yasuda!  When my husband and I entered the small, intimate restaurant, we saw Chef Yasuda standing alone at the bar.  He had no facial expression (maybe he was getting into the zone?).  As everyone sat down, he was preparing our foods and began talking to us in a calm, friendly manner.  
As the night progressed, we all were having interesting conversations with Chef Yasuda from his life back in New York (he was the former owner of Sushi Yasuda), sushi making techniques (and secrets!), him getting to know a bit about his patrons, and so on. I had told him that we were from Las Vegas, NV and he made fun of how it was impossible to get great sushi to the desert.  Well, after eating my omakase meal, I would have to agree with him!

Now onto the food, if you haven't recognized him yet, Chef Naomichi Yasuda is featured in CNN's Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown episode in Tokyo, Japan.  If you've seen this epis…

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).
