Marché Bacchus

For a girls' day out, my friends and I went to eat some French food at Marché Bacchus for lunch.  On Mondays to Fridays, this restaurant offers the Lakefront Lunch menu.  You have the choice of two courses with a complimentary house wine.  Along with this $19.95 lunch special, you are seated outside at the restaurant's patio, don't worry it's in a comfortable and cool area with mists and ceiling fans everywhere and you'll see lovely view of Lake Jacqueline while dining there.

Starting off the meal with some light and fluffy bread
with butter.

Soupe Du Jour: the chef's daily creation of the day was this chill soup of mainly
watermelon juice and a little salt.  Great to drink during a hot summer day!

Portobello Mushroom Burger-  roasted peppers and onions, arugula,
herbed goat cheese, balsamic reduction, and a whole wheat bun.  This
was such a great burger because I loved how this portobello mushroom
was cooked!  It was tender yet still retained it's thick flesh.  I also enjoyed the
frites (fries), it was not greasy, lightly salted, and had a nice crunch to it.

Half Pound Burger- came with horseradish black pepper aioli, cheddar cheese,
pickled red onion and arugula.  The beef was also very tender!

Poulet Frites- pan roasted farm raised chicken paillard, pomme frites, and
natural jus.  Again this meat was also tender.  I was impressed with these simple
dishes!

 Trio Sorbet- when we saw it on the menu we thought it would
be cold like gelato, but it was soft, somewhat like pudding with a clear glaze of sweetness
on top.  This was definitely one of the best desserts I've had.  These three flavors
blended with each other so well!

A big Créme Brulee- with vanilla bean custard and caramelized sugar

Part of the view of Lake Jacqueline.  This made the vibe more relaxing and
there were pretty black swans to see!

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!

Stockholm Trip '17

Over a month ago, my husband and I embarked on our first trip to Europe!!! We were there for a couple weeks and spent our time exploring the capital cities of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.  The two things I found most captivating was the art, especially the architecture, and the food!  Our trip started in Oslo, Norway and Copenhagen, Denmark (check out the links at the end of the post for more details) and ended our Euro trip in Stockholm, Sweden:

AB Café Never in my whole life did I eat pastries and drink coffee every morning until I arrived in Europe! A lot of pastries I had were hearty which left me wanting to have at least one daily.  In the neighborhood near where we were staying at was AB Café.  This is a small, cozy cafe where you can have a small bite to eat and drink before you start your day.  Pictured below is their Key Lime Sandwich, latte, and a bullar (sweet bun).  It was a nice fika!

Japan Trip '16: Sushi Bar Yasuda

I had to save my best dining experience in Japan for last at Sushi Bar Yasuda!  When my husband and I entered the small, intimate restaurant, we saw Chef Yasuda standing alone at the bar.  He had no facial expression (maybe he was getting into the zone?).  As everyone sat down, he was preparing our foods and began talking to us in a calm, friendly manner.  
As the night progressed, we all were having interesting conversations with Chef Yasuda from his life back in New York (he was the former owner of Sushi Yasuda), sushi making techniques (and secrets!), him getting to know a bit about his patrons, and so on. I had told him that we were from Las Vegas, NV and he made fun of how it was impossible to get great sushi to the desert.  Well, after eating my omakase meal, I would have to agree with him!

Now onto the food, if you haven't recognized him yet, Chef Naomichi Yasuda is featured in CNN's Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown episode in Tokyo, Japan.  If you've seen this epis…
