Rose. Rabbit. Lie.

Rose. Rabbit. Lie at The Cosmopolitan is one of the most interesting places I've been to on The Strip.  I feel like I've fallen down the rabbit hole like Alice and somehow landed at this restaurant!  Rose. Rabbit. Lie. has multiple rooms that has a bar, speakeasy (separate drink menu from the bar), and has a show called Vegas Nocturne that plays at three different times throughout the night w/ different prices per time slot.  We opted to just dine in and will watch the show at another time.  Just eating at the dining room was great experience for me and my group!

The lovely dining room- I love how detailed everything was from the silverware, menu, and to the art:


Rose. Rabbit. Lie. has a creative drink menu.  The drinks on the top are Chrysanthemum and Mark Twain.  At the bottom is Floradora Imperial and Vivante Water- Earth friendly water:


This restaurant serves tapa style dishes, I was impressed with each of them :)
The dishes in this photo collage are:
Sauteed Calamari- flavored with lime, oil, garlic, and its own ink.
Oysters On The Half Shell- with Cognac cocktail sauce, mignonette, and horseradish sorbet.  Even if you don't like horseradish, you must try it, its unbelievably tasty!
Uni Perciatelli- with Alaskan king crab, shiso, and umami butter.  This pasta was al dente and the umami butter had a unique type of creaminess to it.
Brussel Sprouts- This popular dish comes with crispy chicken skin, manchego, and Spanish smoked paprika.  Loup De Mer en Croute- Branzino fish on creamed spinach, raisins, and verjus.
Ajo Blanco Gazpacho- This chilled appetizer comes in a bear (?) paw-shot glass with marcona almonds and green grapes.  Since it comes in a shot glass, just down this appetizer, its refreshing!


For dessert I got the Cookie Jar-  This was a fancy presentation for an assortment of cookies, which were freshly made.  There were cookies on the crown (lid) and inside the bear.  My favorite ones were the two oatmeal raisin (?) cookies with cream cheese-filling in between them:


Other things I liked about my dining experience was the top notch service- very attentive, yet not overbearing, and how part of the show spilled into the dining room for a bit.  I would say more, but you'd just have to see it for yourself.  Lastly, it costs $$$ to dine at Rose. Rabbit. Lie., but totally worth every penny!

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 there! AND it's important to make a reservation before coming in because Kabuto is a very …

Japan Trip '16: Kanazawa and Tokyo

Continuing on from my last post, Japan Trip '16: Osaka, when we left Osaka, we travelled up north to Kanazawa then travelled to Tokyo where we stayed for the remainder of our trip.

We made a stop at Kyoto to do some sightseeing and snacked from bento boxes before we went on our trek:


The Japanese make cute stuff out of everything.  Yes, even food.  Kawaii desu ne:


After a long walk seeing the Arashiyama Bamboo Groove, we saw Taiyaki for the first time!  This fluffy fish-shaped cake is made out pancake or waffle batter and is usually filled with green tea, custard, or red bean paste (from sweetened adzuki beans) as seen here:


Hacchoya was the first restaurant we ate at when we arrived in Kanazawa.  This was a very nice and chic izakaya (Japanese tavern).  When we arrived it was crowded with business people dining and had a smoky atmosphere.  I hate smoke, but it won't stop me from trying new foods!  Other than eating, be sure to try the local sakes that Hacchoya has to offer.  He…

Elixir

When I heard that my friends wanted to meet up at the new local lounge, Elixir to watch a football game, I assumed this place would be like some neighborhood bars - a lot of drinks, but with subpar food... I was completely wrong!  Elixir had modern decor:


Interesting drinks:

And foods that are made in-house including the breads, and their meats are never frozen:

If you're looking for a different bar to watch a sports game, I recommend going to Elixir!  This lounge has a nice, chill atmosphere.  Also, their Happy Hour Specials have a lot to offer (there are new items that aren't in their site yet).
