Gordon Ramsay BurGR

I had received an e-mail from a fellow food blogger, Michael, of S.O.F.A.T. Blog asking if I wanted to have dinner with him.  I had never had an invitation from a food blogger before to go eat out, so I said yes (might as well try something new!).  One of his suggestions of places to eat at was Gordan Ramsay BurGR in Planet Hollywood.  I haven't been to any of Ramsay's restaurants, so I was curious to eat there and wanted to see what the hype was all about.

Since I was with another food blogger, I was compelled to take a lot of photos:

The entrance - love the ceiling!

The screen menu in front of the restaurant

The menu

All menus had different photos on the back and they
were souvenirs!

Ready to eat!

Roasted Jalapeño Poppers- All came with bacon,
cheddar ranch, and one fiery surprise.  Since there was four of
us, one of us got the fiery surprise (this jalapeño had a lot of
 seeds)... And it wasn't me!

OHH look at the cheese oozing haha

We all shared the Kale Granny-Apple Caesar Salad-
topped with parmigiano-reggiano cheese+mini herb-
garlic croutons.  The dressing was mild and the cheese
complimented it well.  Since we were all going to eat a
lot of meat, fried foods, and dessert, I wanted to
 balance the meal with some fiber!

Our second appetizer was Fury Chicken Wings- comes with
four tangy hellfire blue cheese wings+four honey
wasabi wings.  I liked both of these, the sauces were
quite awesome.

The waiter left us with this iPad to look for drinks to order!

My friend had this drink, I think it
had 'super antioxidant' in the name?

The Britannia Burger- comes with English sharp cheddar
(my favorite)+mango chutney+arugula+Brioche bun

If you notice in this photo, there is NO sauce whatsoever.
The meat is also not seasoned!
The flavors are fused in from the grill+wood (applewood and alderwood).  I couldn't believe
it after the first bite, there was soo much flavor! The cheese,
chutney, and arugula were delicious companions to the
beef.  The burger was grilled exactly to my liking and the bun was
perfecto!  It was slightly puffy.

I got the Just Fries- they're hand cut,
comes with chipotle ketchup+curry ketchup.
These two ketchups should be sold
everywhere!  They both added a nice kick to
the fries.

All of our foods!

Me and Michael each had a our sugar fixes by having the
Sticky Toffee Pudding Push Up Pops- Salted peanut ice
cream in a push up pop.  I felt like a kid again!  I could
distinctly taste the sweetness of the ice cream/toffee and
 the salty peanut at the same time, I loved it!

I honestly can say this is one of my favorite burger joints in Las Vegas!  Even though this place serves gourmet style food, it has a casual atmosphere so you don't have to worry about dressing ultra nice.  Also the service here was outstanding, our waiter knew every single detail of the items we were interested in ordering!

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 …

Japan Trip '16: Kanazawa and Tokyo

Continuing on from my last post, Japan Trip '16: Osaka, when we left Osaka, we travelled up north to Kanazawa then travelled to Tokyo where we stayed for the remainder of our trip.

We made a stop at Kyoto to do some sightseeing and snacked from bento boxes before we went on our trek:


The Japanese make cute stuff out of everything.  Yes, even food.  Kawaii desu ne:


After a long walk seeing the Arashiyama Bamboo Groove, we saw Taiyaki for the first time!  This fluffy fish-shaped cake is made out pancake or waffle batter and is usually filled with green tea, custard, or red bean paste (from sweetened adzuki beans) as seen here:


Hacchoya was the first restaurant we ate at when we arrived in Kanazawa.  This was a very nice and chic izakaya (Japanese tavern).  When we arrived it was crowded with business people dining and had a smoky atmosphere.  I hate smoke, but it won't stop me from trying new foods!  Other than eating, be sure to try the local sakes that Hacchoya has to offer.  He…

Elixir

When I heard that my friends wanted to meet up at the new local lounge, Elixir to watch a football game, I assumed this place would be like some neighborhood bars - a lot of drinks, but with subpar food... I was completely wrong!  Elixir had modern decor:


Interesting drinks:

And foods that are made in-house including the breads, and their meats are never frozen:

If you're looking for a different bar to watch a sports game, I recommend going to Elixir!  This lounge has a nice, chill atmosphere.  Also, their Happy Hour Specials have a lot to offer (there are new items that aren't in their site yet).
