Yu-Yu

I had heard Yu-Yu was a restaurant that recently opened in China Town, so of course I had to check this place out!  This restaurant specializes in kushi age (Japanese deep-fried meat, vegetable, and fruit on skewers).  Their deep-fried delights don't compare to what you eat at fast food chains.  Upon seeing them you'll notice they're not soggy and not leaking thru with oil, they're deep-fried just right!

I loved their simple decor, it was splendid!

Tofu Salad- this was one good d*mn salad !!

As you can see the kushi age are lightly breaded and small.
I remember we had shrimp, water chestnut, lotus root,
shiitake mushroom, squid leg, silver fish, Asian pear, etc.
I never knew so many foods could be fried and still taste
great than just by itself!  The foods are typically dipped
into a batter of egg, flour, panko (bread crumbs);
and deep-fried in vegetable oil.

Tamago (Japanese omelette) with a side of
daikon (a white radish).

Chilled Udon- I've never tasted udon noodles that were
gummy like before.  The noodles' texture and them being
chilled was actually refreshing to me, I wanted to keep
eating more of it!

If you're a deep-fried food lover, want to go somewhere for a cheat meal, or just wanting to have a meal in a nice and quiet place I recommend coming to Yu-Yu!

P.S. 
Yu-Yu's hours: 
Lunch 11am-2pm
Dinner 5pm-11pm

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:
