Yonaka Modern Japanese

When I heard that Yonaka serves modern Japanese dishes, I was curious and had to go as soon as I could!  I was impressed at the beginning before I even started eating.  Our waiter was very informative going about the concept of Yonaka's dishes and remembered in detail the dishes he recommended us to try.  Another thing I liked about Yonaka was complimentary dishes we received... It was very nice of the staff!



Midori Salad- greens, 
asparagus,
 snow
 peas,
 asian 
pear,
 avocado,

 and
cucumber 

This was complimentary and had an interesting dressing drizzled over
the fruits.

Sake Orenji- atlantic 
salmon,
 orange
 supreme, 
yuzu 
tobiko, 

lemon
 oil,
 and maldon. 

Hamachi Kama- grilled
 yellowtail
 collar,
 preserved
 lemon,

and pickled 
vegetables

A complimentary dish!  

Fresh uni (sea urchin)...What a lovely presentation!

I forgot the name of this dish, but it was quite unique and flavorful!

Had to of course get some sushi

Dessert- you can tell the flavors by the
fruits...  I was surprised by the blood
orange sherbert.  I think it was the first
time I had tasted this fruit's flavor, it
wasn't as sour as I thought it would be!

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:
