South Point Gourmet Food Truck Fest

Earlier this month I went to the South Point Gourmet Food Truck Fest.  Non-food wise, the lot where this food truck fest was located at was s p a c i o u s, I loved it!  There were twenty food trucks there (many of them were from California).  The lucky food trucks I tried foods from were Calbi Fusion Tacos|Burritos, Pie 'n Burger, Longboards Ice Cream, Ludo Truck, and Nom Nom Truck.

@ Calbi- This food truck sells Korean BBQ style tacos, burritos, and quesadillas aka "KoMex" food.  Being an adventurous eater, I tried the Kim Chee Quesadillas with a house dipping sauce on the side.  Never would I think of combining kim chee, cheese, and a tortilla together!  The quesadillas were quite pleasant.  I only wish that the quesadillas or the sauce had more spices added to them:




@ Pie 'n Burger - I got a pie, but also got a hot dog instead of a burger... I know I should've got a burger (hence their name), but I was really craving a hot dog!:






@ Ludo Truck - I sampled my frien…

Filfila Mediterranean Cafe

Upon entering Filfila Mediterranean Cafe I was intrigued by the decoration on the walls because there was cultural art everywhere.  I noticed small banners that had King Tut on them, wall paper that had ancient Egyptian art on them, and this beautiful painting of this lady standing by a river - it had to be the Nile.  At that moment I realized I was going to try Mediterranean foodEgyptian style for the first time, I was excited!





Since I still feel like a noob when it comes to Mediterranean food, the only differences I noticed from other Mediterranean places in Vegas compared to the Egyptian style Med. food I had here was the amount of spices used and more extra virgin olive oil is poured all over the hummus (I may be wrong, maybe Egyptian hummus isn't always like this).

Jean-Philippe Pâtisserie Post #2

This was my favorite leftover cake from Jean Philippe Patisserie in Aria.  This lovely cake was chocolately smooth and moist, and filled with lots of nuts.  I will never forget this cake!

Trattoria Nakamura-Ya

Trattoria Nakamura-Ya was the first Japanese Italian fusion place I went to (finally!).  Other than the photos of the menus you see here, there was also a board listing the entrees.  Its a small restaurant so I had a nice intimate dinner with my ladies.  I was glad it wasn't a loud place so we didn't have to talk over other people's chattering or music!
There were many unique items on the menu, which made it a bit hard to choose something!  In my opinion the entrée that stood out the most was the Uni & Tomato Cream Pasta, just because I've never seen uni come with a meal before!  Even though that dish was tempting I got a gnochii pasta dish with tuna instead.  I missed gnochii so I had to get it!  
While we waited for our foods we were served buns.  If you can imagine Olive Garden's bread (except it not being buttery) having a baby with an Asian steamed bun, thats what Nakamura-Ya's buns tasted like!
