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:

Try saying the name of this brewery seven times

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!

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 …
