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:

Oyster Shooters with uni and ikura

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!

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!
