Echo & Rig

One of the new Las Vegas restaurants to eat at is Echo & Rig, located in Tivoli Village:


One unique thing about this steakhouse is that they have butchers!  So if you really enjoyed their meats, you can learn more from a professional and bring some meat home:


Echo & Rig specializes in assortment of steaks:


We had heard that people raved over their Portobello Fries with Herb Aioli.  These thick slices of portobello fries were absolutely delicious!  This appetizer is worth trying:


My friends got the Bone Marrow Carne Asada:


I wanted to try a vegetable appetizer, so I ordered the Pumpkin Squash, Rosemary & Brown Sugar.  It was nicely cooked by it not being soggy, and light in sweetness:


Entree time!  These all cost $17.70, not bad for paying for fine quality meats.  I got to sample each of my friends' dishes and I could taste the freshness and juiciness in each of them, especially the lamb:

I had the Mary’s Chicken- ½ roasted chicken with white grits, herbs de Provence, and au jus.  The chicken paired quite well with the grits and the chicken was moist!:


My friend got the Sea Bass ala Plancha: with crispy skin and olive oil dipping sauce:


My husband got the Wood Roasted Salmon with Béarnaise.  This usually comes with meat juice, but since my spouse is a pescetarian, they didn't mind not including the meat juices:


My other friend got Colorado Lamb Porterhouse Chops with Peewee potatoes, dried apricots, and violet mustard:


We just had to get another appetizer.  This is the Grilled Octopus, Gigante Beans, Garlic & Green Olive Vinaigrette- this unique dish was surprisingly light to me!  I would've never pictured octopus with these beans, garlic, and vinaigrette:


Lovely view from the patio:


It was such a nice dining experience at Echo & Rig.  I look forward to eating their other dishes!

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:

Jack's Inn 312 Alamaha St Kahului, HI 96732 (808) 877-3610


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 …
