First Year Wedding Anniversary @ Bellagio

For me and my husband's first year wedding anniversary, we spent the day at one of my favorite hotel/casinos on the Strip, the Bellagio.  All we did was eat, drink, and be tourists all day!

Yellowtail

First we went to the Taste of the Town, Sushi & Sake Reception at Yellowtail.  We got to sample different kinds of drinks and Japanese foods:


 There was a copious amount of sake over food, so it was hard to choose which were my favorites:



I enjoyed from learning a lot from the people who served all these drinks because they were quite informative about each of them.  It reminded me that the science and art into making each alcoholic beverage are remarkable.

Picasso

For dinner we ate at French food at Picasso and had a lovely view of the Fountains of Bellagio:


Prix fixe menu:


Crème of Roasted Butternut Squash- this was a nice creamy soup to start off the meal:


I chose to get the Roasted Pigeon with Wild Rice Risotto as my main dish.  This was the first time I ate pigeon and had to forget about the notion of what Americans typically think about these birds before eating it.  This bird has been a delicacy to eat in other countries for centuries, so how bad can it be?  Our waiter informed me that the pigeon meat is gamy, and it was very much so the definition of gamy!  I've had duck before so the texture was similar between both birds, but the pigeon's dark meat was thicker and had its own distinct flavor which I found delicious!  I absolutely loved the marinade that was used.  So I suggest to you Americans who think pigeons are disgusting, get that notion out of your head and give it try.  You won't be eating that possibly diseased bird you saw earlier walking down the street, the meat comes from domesticated pigeons:


Dessert menu:


Hazelnut Joconde- Gianduia Mousse, Vanilla Frangelico Ice Cream, Chocolate Covered Hazelnuts. This were a tasteful pair:


Warm Chocolate Fondant- Peanut Butter Malt Ice Cream with Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge.  The pairing of the fudge and ice cream also went well together.  This chocolate was very rich and thick, so this dessert is highly recommended for chocolate lovers:


Picasso's art are placed throughout the restaurant, it was very nice to see some of this famous artist's work:


It was an interesting experience dining here, now I won't be afraid to eat pigeon!

Kabuto

Eating at  Kabuto  was a wonderful dining and learning experience for my fiance and I.  If you are truly a sushi / Japanese food  enthusiast and am willing to pay $$$ for what you get, you must come to Kabuto! We each ordered some à la carte items and the Nigiri Omakase , which includes an appetizer, ten pieces of sushi nigiri, hand roll, and dessert.  Our chef was the general manager, he's such a knowledgeable man!  He told us about the distinctive features of each fish, what his job entails, and funny stories.  I'm so glad he was our chef! Since we sat at the bar, we were up close to see how our sushi chef worked.  He wasn't in a rush and we got to see the artistic side of how sushi is made. This made me appreciate my experience at Kabuto much more:                    Last note : Finding this place was also a learning experience for us, you may get aggravated looking for it in the strip mall... Kabuto is th

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 !
