Bernard's Bistro

Last month we went to Bernard's Bistro's second location in Henderson to try out Californian-French cuisine.  This bistro has a nice and cozy decor, which makes it very inviting.

For our appetizers we tried the Ahi Tuna Tartar (top left pic)- served with avocado, ocean seaweed, sesame wonton and ponzu sauce on an egg shell.  I especially liked the presentation of this app, it was so nicely done that I didn't want to eat it!  All the garnishes complimented the ahi well.  The second app we got was the Escargot Belle Époque (top right pic)- land snails, mushrooms and tomatoes in garlic butter sauce.  To me, the sauce wasn't too buttery and I was able to taste the escargot.

The entrees we chose were the Argentinian Pan Roasted Organic Chicken Chimichuri (middle left pic)- with roasted potatoes, seasonal vegetables and pine nut chimichuri sauce; the second entree was Bistro Prime Cheese Burger (middle pic)- comes with caramelized onions and raisins with their house flavor spread.  This burger was humongous!  I needed a fork and knife to eat it.  There weren't too much raisins and it blended well with the sauce.

For dessert, my husband got a slice of key lime pie (middle right pic) and I got the Tarte Tartin with vanilla ice cream and strawberries (bottom pic)- this dessert is an upside-down tart in which the apples are caramelized in butter and sugar before the tart is baked.

The presentation of each dish were all wonderfully done:


If you're looking to have a casual dinner with a right amount of class, Bernard's Bistro is a great place to eat at!

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!

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 …
