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!

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!

Japan Trip '16: Sushi Bar Yasuda

I had to save my best dining experience in Japan for last at Sushi Bar Yasuda!  When my husband and I entered the small, intimate restaurant, we saw Chef Yasuda standing alone at the bar.  He had no facial expression (maybe he was getting into the zone?).  As everyone sat down, he was preparing our foods and began talking to us in a calm, friendly manner.  
As the night progressed, we all were having interesting conversations with Chef Yasuda from his life back in New York (he was the former owner of Sushi Yasuda), sushi making techniques (and secrets!), him getting to know a bit about his patrons, and so on. I had told him that we were from Las Vegas, NV and he made fun of how it was impossible to get great sushi to the desert.  Well, after eating my omakase meal, I would have to agree with him!

Now onto the food, if you haven't recognized him yet, Chef Naomichi Yasuda is featured in CNN's Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown episode in Tokyo, Japan.  If you've seen this epis…
