E-Jo Korean Restaurant

After watching a whole series of a Korean show, I was craving Korean food (people were eating in every episode!).  I decided to go to E-Jo Korean Restaurant mainly because of its location near Downtown.






My craving for Korean food was finally satisfied and I look forward to trying their other soups next time!

Gordon Ramsay BurGR

I had received an e-mail from a fellow food blogger, Michael, of S.O.F.A.T. Blog asking if I wanted to have dinner with him.  I had never had an invitation from a food blogger before to go eat out, so I said yes (might as well try something new!).  One of his suggestions of places to eat at was Gordan Ramsay BurGR in Planet Hollywood.  I haven't been to any of Ramsay's restaurants, so I was curious to eat there and wanted to see what the hype was all about.
Since I was with another food blogger, I was compelled to take a lot of photos:










Tacos El Gordo

If you're craving for some authentic Mexican food, I recommend eating at Tacos El Gordo (they have a few locations in town):



Another great thing about Tacos El Gordo (the one on The Strip) is that it's open 24/7!

Commonwealth

Commonwealth located in Downtown - East Fremont District is one pub I find to be interesting place to hang out at.

Here are reasons why I like this pub:





The atmosphere was way more chill than I expected, which I enjoyed.  If this is also your type of scene I suggest to check Commonwealth out!

Yu-Yu

I had heard Yu-Yu was a restaurant that recently opened in China Town, so of course I had to check this place out!  This restaurant specializes in kushi age (Japanese deep-fried meat, vegetable, and fruit on skewers).  Their deep-fried delights don't compare to what you eat at fast food chains.  Upon seeing them you'll notice they're not soggy and not leaking thru with oil, they're deep-fried just right!





If you're a deep-fried food lover, want to go somewhere for a cheat meal, or just wanting to have a meal in a nice and quiet place I recommend coming to Yu-Yu!
P.S.  Yu-Yu's hours:  Lunch 11am-2pm Dinner 5pm-11pm

CPK Partnership With Colby Red

A few days ago, California Pizza Kitchen announced their partnership with Colby Red, a red wine whose proceeds support charities that promote heart health.  Colby Red is specifically a California cuvee of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Shiraz, & Zinfandel.  This sounds like a wonderful blend and definitely good for the heart!


This wine was inspired by Colby Groom who endured two back to back heart surgeries as a child.  He enlisted his father, a winemaker, to create a wine that raises money to help others. To hear more about this story, check out this YouTube video.  After watching this video I was moved:

CPK will serve Colby Red on their menu (by the glass and bottle) at all their locations through the end of April. Also CPK has also pledged to donate up to $10,000 to charities focused on heart health this year (very nice!).

In other news, CPK's Valentine's Day menu will be available for four days from 2/14 through 2/17. This menu for two includes an appetiz…

Hawaiian Style Poke

After a week back home in Las Vegas I still longed for the food back in Hawaii.  Luckily when my husband and I were in Chinatown, I saw the shop Hawaiian Style Poke.  We had to go there to cure my blues!  As you can see from my photo they make a variety of poke (poʊˈkeɪ):

Modern poke is a raw salad mainly consisting of cubed ahi (yellowfin tuna), soy sauce, sesame oil, limu seaweed, other Asian influenced condiments, etc.  Other varieties of poke include tako (octopus), other types of raw fish, sliced Maui onions, and many more!  Poke is great to eat with rice or poi.  So if ever you need your 'poke fix', come to Hawaiian Style Poke!
