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!

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

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.

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!

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…

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 …
