Pioneer Saloon

If you're interested in exploring other parts of Nevada or just want to get away from Las Vegas, Pioneer Saloon in Goodsprings is the place to visit!  This saloon was built back in 1913 and is full of history:


Gate to the outdoor dining area

Just walk on over to the general store next to the saloon
and order your food.

I got the Alaskan Salmon Burger.  The patty was grilled just right!  It came
with addicting kettle chips and I got to choose my toppings.  The owner
recommended me to try the ghost chili sauce with my burger.  I was
hesitant to get it because I can't handle very spicy foods, but he assured me
it wasn't that spicy... He was right, the sauce went great with my burger!

Outlaw Chicken Nachos

If you want to cook your own food instead you can rent a grill and they'll
supply the food!

Fire pit

Loaded Gun Baked Potato- I was still hungry and got this HUGE baked
potato, I think the owner was shocked that I was still ordering food!
This potato is topped with a generous serving of chili and cheese, it was quite a
(second) hearty meal.

Pioneer Saloon is fairly easy to find.  Just take the I-15 South from Las Vegas to Exit 12, turn right, next you'll see the road that leads to Goodsprings, drive 7 more miles and you'll see the saloon on the right side.

Japan Trip '16: Kanazawa and Tokyo

Continuing on from my last post, Japan Trip '16: Osaka, when we left Osaka, we travelled up north to Kanazawa then travelled to Tokyo where we stayed for the remainder of our trip.

We made a stop at Kyoto to do some sightseeing and snacked from bento boxes before we went on our trek:


The Japanese make cute stuff out of everything.  Yes, even food.  Kawaii desu ne:


After a long walk seeing the Arashiyama Bamboo Groove, we saw Taiyaki for the first time!  This fluffy fish-shaped cake is made out pancake or waffle batter and is usually filled with green tea, custard, or red bean paste (from sweetened adzuki beans) as seen here:


Hacchoya was the first restaurant we ate at when we arrived in Kanazawa.  This was a very nice and chic izakaya (Japanese tavern).  When we arrived it was crowded with business people dining and had a smoky atmosphere.  I hate smoke, but it won't stop me from trying new foods!  Other than eating, be sure to try the local sakes that Hacchoya has to offer.  He…

Maui & Oahu Trip '15

Earlier in July my husband I spent a couple weeks in Hawai'i.  We went to Maui (my first time there) then to O'ahu.  While in Hawai'i I got to see the differences and similarities between Maui and O'ahu.  The one thing both islands had in common was that there was delicious food everywhere!  Here are some of my favorite places we grubbed at and interesting foods we saw:
Jack's Inn When we arrived in Maui, we were craving some local food so we asked a few locals what were good local spots to eat at near the airport.  Locals were recommending Jack's Inn so we went there for breakfast.  It's a small diner with a simple menu:

I chose the Crazy Omelette with meats that the Hawaiian locals love- 2 eggs with Spam, Vienna Sausage, Portuguese sausage, and green onions!  Despite the variety of meats, I'm glad that one meat didn't overpower the other:

Miso Phat Sushi Right near our hotel was Miso Ph…

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!
