Taco Azteca

 In Las Vegas there is such an abundance of Mexican restaurants that I find it overwhelming, but in a good way!  Just choosing where to eat for Mexican food makes it a bit harder.  After over a year of driving pass Taco Azteca, my friend and I finally went there!  We finally crossed this place off of our "foodie bucket list":



In the evenings they have their mini food truck in front of the restaurant:


Menu:


My friend had given up carne for Lent and when looking at this menu, we assumed the Quesadilla only had queso inside the folded tortilla.  When she got it, there was also carne inside!  I graciously took it from her and requested from the cook to have another quesadilla with only queso.  

For our drinks we each had a Champurrado (not on this menu).  This is a warm, thick, 'chocolately' drink, based on hominy flour, piloncillo, water or milk, and may also contain cinnamon, anise seed and/or vanilla bean.  This is not your average cocoa!  This drink is perfect for cold weather and is best to accompany it with a small snack or by itself!

Whenever I'm craving a late night snack, I'll make sure to come by Taco Azteca again :)

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:
