The Barrymore

I got the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary dinner at The Barrymore inside the Royal Resort before it's grand opening.  I loved every aspect of this restaurant during my dining experience!  The friendly staff and their service, interior decoration, the display of wine, selection of jazz music, food quality, and reasonable prices pleased me!  I hope my pictures can give the reader an idea of what I mean:

The beautiful dining room for dinner.  I don't want to spoil the surprise of what the entire place looks like.  You can look it up at another site if you're that curious... 
Freshly baked bread
Lobster Mac & Cheese - with mascarpone-tallegio cream sauce.  It definitely did NOT taste like it came from a box.
Lobster "Deviled Eggs" 
The Crispy Fried Outer Banks Calamari - with romesco sauce (our waiter raved about it!), herbs, and lemon
Pan Seared Foie Gras - Specially fattened duck or goose liver with vanilla bean French toast, fig and cherry chutney.  The liver had a slightly sweet taste.  If no one told me this was a liver, I'd assume it was some dessert!  
Diver Scallops - ox-tail stew, potato galette on the bottom and mushroom emulsion.  I've never seen scallops this thick and meaty looking before!
Pan-Seared Salmon - with roasted fennel, bouillabaisse broth, and saffron rouille
I had the Vadouvan Squash Curry - squash and root vegetables in curry, topped with cous cous.  It came in an interesting genie bottle-like cover to preserve the smell and heat (?) of the dish.

At the new Downtown Summerlin  shopping plaza, fantastic shops and restaurants are opening up including a new gelato eatery named  Gelato Messina .  What stands out about this gelato shop is that this is their first US location (they are based in  Australia ) and they make their gelato from scratch using only the finest ingredients.  I guarantee that if you stop by and sample their gelato, your eyes will POP in amazement like mines did!

Hana Hou

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
