Yard House @ The LINQ

A few days before the grand opening of the Yard House @ The LINQ, I had the pleasure of having a sneak peak of the new location and sampling some of the food from their menu.  It seemed like there was an endless amount of food that kept coming over to us during the one hour I was there!  Upon walking in I was surprised how huge the first floor was.  The interior was quite sleek and had huge ceiling fans.  At this food event we were also given two free drink tickets (wish I could have used both, but had to work right after).

Here are some sample of foods we had- hamburger slider (the beef was seasoned nicely and cooked medium with a bit juiciness), Shiitake Garlic Noodles (one of my favorite appetizers), New York Steak Salad (I wish there were more greens, but I know it was a sample!), and Penne with Chicken (along with crimini mushrooms, asparagus and sun-dried tomatoes in marsala cream sauce, and parmesan):


Another set of foods we tried were- Blue Crab Cakes (with mango papaya chutney, passion fruit beurre blanc and tomato oil), Mediterranean Seared Scallops (roasted pasilla and spicy hummus with a brown rice sun-dried tomato tabouleh), and Pepperoni & Mushroom Pizza (its been a long time since I've had pizza at YH, eating this slice reminded me I should try more of their pizzas!): 


The last set of food in this photo are- Blackened Swordfish Taco (with green cabbage, cilantro, cumin crema, pico de gallo, guacamole and mango papaya chutney), Moo Shu Egg Roll (chicken, chili cream cheese, carrots, green onions, cilantro, spinach with apple ginger plum sauce), and a sample of Ahi Poke Bowl (marinated raw ahi and avocado with carrots, daikon radish, macadamia nuts on fried wonton):


This is the third YH location I've been to.  I was again impressed with all the foods and service.  The location of this new site is prime!  Lastly, this is the photo of the second floor/ patio, what a great view of the High Roller Ferris Wheel:


I look forward to eating at this YH location again and to also have a nice view of just watching the High Roller lighted up and moving!

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 …
