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 :)

Fat Boy

On my cheat day I ate at Fat Boy located on 4425 Stewart St Suite 107 (corner of Stewart St & Lamb Blvd).  It's a small fast food joint that serves hamburgers, pizzas, burritos, salads, smoothies (their syrups are homemade), milkshakes, and Mexican food:

Chencho Fries- a Fat Boy favorite!  These fries are topped with salsa verde, grilled onions, chopped chicken, and melted cheese:

Pastrami Boyger- beef patty topped with pastrami, mustard, grilled onions, pickles and mayo.  If you need a serious protein fix, this "boyger" is for you:

Fat Boy makes their meat patties daily and are never frozen.  Toppings and vegetables are prepared as needed, and buns are delivered to the restaurant fresh daily.  If you're feeling gluttonous, check out Fat Boy!

Flock & Fowl

If you're in the mood to eat a chicken dish, I highly recommend checking out Flock & Fowl.  This restaurant specializes in making Hainanese Chicken Rice.  It's a simple dish consisting of poached organic, free range chicken with marinated cucumbers and preserved mustard greens as seen in the photo below.  You may dip the chicken in ginger scallion sauce, house made sambal (chile), and house made soy sauce for more flavor/kick (not pictured).  Also, the sides to choose from are organic egg, Chinese sausage (lap cheung), chicken broth, or more chicken rice:

On the day we dined there, the Chicken & Poached Egg Congee was the special dish of the day.  Congeeis a rice porridge that's common throughout Asian countries.  It can be eaten plain, but usually comes with garnishes and sides:



We couldn't resist trying their steamed buns:

After I ate, I felt like I finished a home cooked meal, which is a rare feeling for me when eating at any restaurant.  Keep in mind this …
