Other Mama

It's been awhile since I've blogged about a restaurant in my hometown, Las Vegas!  Being a new parent has made me busy bee, so I have been putting up quick posts on the @CheerUpWithFood Instagram here and there instead.  I will continue blogging when I get the chance though! 

 Over the weekend I dined at Other Mama.  Since I'm a big seafood lover, it was hard to decide what I wanted to try.  As you can see on Daily Specials, they offer an interesting variety of seafood:

Daily Specials!

They also serve beer, wine, and cocktails:

In Vegas it's not often that you see Hush Puppies (cornbread balls) on a menu so I had to try their rendition.  These appetizers were soft, fluffy and it's subtle sweetness hit the spot:

On to the raw delights:

Amberjack Crudo- garnished with meyer lemon, radish, and chives

There were four types of oysters being served as the Daily Specials so we tried one of each:

Wico Mico, Hammersly, Pickering Pass, and Calm Cove oysters with wasabi cocktail, rosemary mignonette, ponzu salsa, and pickled pepper & habanero

Their Oyster Shooters were like a seafood medley!  I wish I could slurp 20 more of these:

A refined ceviche dish:

This was the first time I ate tostada bread perfectly crisp and the lobster and its garnishes were quite flavorful:

Oh my sweet tooth!  We were surprised with Honey Miso and Nutella Ice Cream, both made from scratch:

I never tasted ice cream so soft like this in a long time!  These could be confused with gelato

Eating at Other Mama reminded me how much I miss the food in Japan and I enjoyed how they infused flavors from other cuisines into their dishes! Thank you Ken for telling me about this place!

Kabuto

Eating at Kabuto was a wonderful dining and learning experience for my fiance and I.  If you are truly a sushi/Japanese food enthusiast and am willing to pay $$$ for what you get, you must come to Kabuto!

We each ordered some à la carte items and the Nigiri Omakase, which includes an appetizer, ten pieces of sushi nigiri, hand roll, and dessert.  Our chef was the general manager, he's such a knowledgeable man!  He told us about the distinctive features of each fish, what his job entails, and funny stories.  I'm so glad he was our chef!

Since we sat at the bar, we were up close to see how our sushi chef worked.  He wasn't in a rush and we got to see the artistic side of how sushi is made. This made me appreciate my experience at Kabuto much more:


















Last note: Finding this place was also a learning experience for us, you may get aggravated looking for it in the strip mall... Kabuto is there! AND it's important to make a reservation before coming in because Kabuto is a very …

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!

Dirt Dog

If you are a hot dog fiend, I highly suggest checking out Dirt Dog! They specialize in gourmet bacon-wrapped hot dogs.  They're originally from LA, recently opened shop here in Las Vegas and planning to open another location on The Strip:
