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:



Front- Tofu Tacos, Back- Kim Chee Quesadillas

@ 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!:



Foot Long Hot Dog topped w/ sauteed onions, yumm!

Pecan Homemade Pie- This pie tasted homemade indeed


@ Ludo Truck - I sampled my friend's Honey-Garlic Glazed Chicken Wings... OMG the marinade drenched in the chicken wing was the best I ever had!  There was a lot of honey in it for sure, but all the spices and sauces that blended with it tasted like heaven.  I wish I could snag that recipe!

@ Chairman Bao Food Truck - This was my fiancé's bao.  He said the dough tasted great and that it was different from the other baos/steamed buns he's had.  Maybe its the California water that makes the dough taste so good:


@ Longboards Ice Cream - I think this was the first frozen banana I had. It was a delightful dessert!  The toppings I chose were dark chocolate, shredded coconut, and peanuts:


@ Nom Nom Truck - This food truck sells Asian style food including Vietnamese sandwiches called bánh mì.  This was also my first time trying these sandwiches, so glad I got to try them from this food truck. The bread was perfectly toasted, the ingredients were fresh, and the sauce was amazing.  When I go back to San Franciso, I'll visit this Nom Nom Truck pronto!

Epic line to the Nom Nom truck, a 40+ minute wait.
This wait was really worth it!

How cute

We also got Vegetarian Tofu Tacos (thanks again Aleina!)

I kind of regret not going to the other food trucks, especially when they had interesting items (like the Tornado Potato Truck)!  But its ok, I'm still satisfied with the food trucks I went to and the event will be back anyways.  If anyone goes to the next food truck fest on November 5th, bring your family and/or friends with you!  Hopefully the more people you're with the more different foods you can sample from ;) Here's the list of trucks that will come later this year: Participating Trucks.

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!

Dirt Dog

If you are a hot dog fiend, I highly suggest checking out Dirt Dog! They specialize in gourmet bacon-wrapped hot dogs.  They're originally from LA, recently opened shop here in Las Vegas and planning to open another location on The Strip:
