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!

 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 Ă  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 th

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 CafĂ© 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 CafĂ© .  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 !
