Where are the Bad Reviews?

I’ve been asked a few times why bad food/restaurant experiences aren't mentioned in any of the CUWF blog entries. Here's a few reasons why:
  • In a world full of negativity, I feel that there is no need to add more of it to the internet universe.  I think we need a little more positivity in our lives, don't you agree?
  • No restaurant is 100% perfect (not even Michelin-starred restaurants!).  Every establishment has its bad days and I don't think that should ever be the reason to blast a chef or a restaurant on the internet, period. Let's celebrate, not castigate!
  • The name of the food blog is Cheer Up With Food – we stay true to form and only write about foods that cheer us up :)
If you're the type to relish in the best that the culinary creationists out there have to offer, look no further than our blog because that's what we love to do, too!  With that said, be sure to embrace the eats, enjoy the flavors, cheer up with your favorite foods and live life to the fullest, always.

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:
