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.

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!

Herbs & Rye

After driving pass by  Herbs & Rye  for many years I finally went in to see what all the hype was about this place.  They serve classic cocktails that were popular during the Prohibition Era and before that time like the Gothic Age (unknown-1865) and Golden Age (1865-1900): Here's an example of of some of the drinks: I loved all the drinks they made, wasn't disappointed with any of them: Herbs & Rye also serves Italian food like  flatbreads , pasta, and  they're known for the steaks they cook, I'll try some next time!  I only had the appetite to drink: I really enjoyed my time here especially the atmosphere of a " speakeasy feel".  They get busy during the weekends so if you plan to dine in, make a reservation !

During the last week of May, Bronsen and I went to Hawaii (my third trip) for vacation / family time / to eat! From my experience so far from eating Hawaiian local food, it consist an influential mix of traditional Hawaiian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, Polynesian, Portuguese, and American foods. If you're fond of any those ethnic foods like me, its like food heaven in Hawaii! We flew on our favorite airline, Hawaiian Airlines . Bronsen was hoping to get a nice meal than a snack because he always has a big appetite. His wish came true, the complimentary meal came with pasta with vegetables and vinegar dressing: and a big brownie!: Hawaiian Airlines going green: One night I was craving for saimin (ramen) noodles and spam musubi , a popular Hawaiian snack simply made with a block of rice, topped with a slice of spam, and wrapped in dried seaweed. Unfortunately, you can't see the noodles, its covered by the pork. I think there was more meat than the n
