Gold Spike Grill

If you haven't heard the news lately, Gold Spike is under a new ownership.  It is no longer a casino,  and has re-opened into a non-smoking bar and restaurant for the time being.  When I scanned through the menu while I was waiting to be seated, I saw some typical diner foods and breakfast offered 24/7:


When we were seated, our waitress gave us a separate notebook-like menu saying there were 100 hot sauces levels 1-10 (!) for us to choose from:

The heat chart

Level 10 hot sauces - I don't think I can ever handle this
level especially the feeling the day after! 

Level 1-3 hot sauces - Now these are hot sauces I can
handle haha

My bestie chose Crystal Hot Sauce and I got the
M&D's Ring of Fire.  Their
flavors and consistency were unique from each other.
For example, Crystal is a thin sauce and Ring of Fire is a thicker
 sauce with tiny chunks of pepper.

I chose a simple three egg omelette with spinach and mushrooms,
hash browns, and wheat toast.  Adding the Ring of Fire hot sauce to my meal enhanced
it quite nicely.

I really like this concept of 100 hot sauces to choose from.  For every time I go to the Gold Spike Grill, I'll level up and see what's the highest level I can handle!

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:
