Umiya

Umiya (formerly known as Kaizen) on Flamingo Rd & Arville St has quite an interesting AYCE sushi menu.  Other than sushi and seafood items, an array of Japanese foods are featured like Monkey Brain. I wasn't adventurous enough to eat Monkey Brain, I don't know if I ever will!

Another great thing about Umiya is when you are an AYCE sushi patron, you have the choice of having all you can drink alcohol for just $10 more!  There's a set menu for that also.  You can choose certain sakes, wines, and beers... What a deal!!

Our sushi chef, Eric, was nice to give my friend
and I custom rolls based off our favorite fishes.
This was my hamachi special roll :)
This roll came with red onions, tobiko (flying fish
roe), shrimp tempura, green onions, and a special
sauce...  Such a wonderful combo!

quite cream cheesy and had this nice sauce
on top!

This is one of my favorite AYCE sushi joints in Las Vegas!  Umiya has awesome food and service.  I'll definitely be visiting this place often!

***Edit: As of 1/24/13, All You Can Drink is no longer available. It is replaced by the new special, 'Buy 2 Get 1 Free drinks'. This includes Beer, Sake (House & Premium), and Soju.

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:
