Forte European Tapas Bar and Bistro

In the past few years there have been a rising popularity of tapas style restaurants in Las Vegas.  Forte European Tapas Bar & Bistro has got to be one of the top tapas places in town!  Just upon entering I saw vibrant European art all over the bistro and the music selection was great - I really wanted to dance, but of course had to eat!  Forte serves a variety of tapas/comfort foods from regions all throughout Europe like Russia, Spain, and Bulgaria.

A cocktail to start off the night.  To see what they make, click here


Plov (Uzbeki style vegetarian pilaf)- the spices used to make this plov was pleasing to my palate!  Eating any type of rice is my weakness:


Adjarski Khachapurri- this is a traditional Georgian boat-shaped bread filled with Georgian style pickled cheeses and a cracked egg.  Forget pizza, I could eat this all day:


Their clay pot meal cooked the Thracian way:


Bulgarian Mixed Grill- with kiufte, kebabche, and loukaniko.  We actually didn't order this haha, I took a photo before we sent it back.  These three sausages look like meat heaven:


Forte Fries with Garlic and Herbs- a lovely presentation of fries:


Vareniki- a hand-made dumpling filled with potatoes and fried onions with a side of sour cream.  If you don't know much about Russian cuisine, just at least know they eat everything with sour cream!:


I'm glad there were four of us, we got to sample each other's desserts.  This first treat is the Tolumba- a fried sweet dough in honey syrup:


Biscuit Cake- a cake layered dessert with honey biscuits, mascarpone, chocolate, Lavazza espresso, a bit of spiced rum, topped with walnuts and extra chocolate:


Baklava- another layered pastry made of sweet filo dough with walnuts and lemon honey syrup:


If you're itching to try out various European foods, I highly recommend checking out Forte!

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 …
