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!

Maui & Oahu Trip '15

Earlier in July my husband I spent a couple weeks in Hawai'i.  We went to Maui (my first time there) then to O'ahu.  While in Hawai'i I got to see the differences and similarities between Maui and O'ahu.  The one thing both islands had in common was that there was delicious food everywhere!  Here are some of my favorite places we grubbed at and interesting foods we saw:
Jack's Inn When we arrived in Maui, we were craving some local food so we asked a few locals what were good local spots to eat at near the airport.  Locals were recommending Jack's Inn so we went there for breakfast.  It's a small diner with a simple menu:

I chose the Crazy Omelette with meats that the Hawaiian locals love- 2 eggs with Spam, Vienna Sausage, Portuguese sausage, and green onions!  Despite the variety of meats, I'm glad that one meat didn't overpower the other:

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…

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!
