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!


Table for hookah
 While we ate, we watched an Egyptian movie from the early 90s(?). 
Never had a dinner and a movie at a cafe before, it was nice and relaxing.


Delicious hummus, it was smooth and tasted homemade :)

The owner made me this huge chicken combo plate!
I loooved the spices that were on the chicken.  

Turkish Coffee - This coffee is quite bold.
If you want to try it and like your coffee sweeter,
 just ask for more sugar!
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).

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!
