Kyara Japanese Tapas

Kyara Japanese Tapas was my number one pick to have a little dinner with my friends during my birthday weekend.  I wouldn't have remembered this place if it weren't for them.  A friend had suggested to eat Japanese food and another suggested to eat Spanish tapas.  Since I like both foods, Kyara came to mind!  I knew Kyara would be a great pick because their foods are served in small servings and since the prices are reasonable, my friends and I could order a lot and try each other's dishes:



We were all given a complimentary salad while we were ordering.

Chef's specials


Edamame

Potato salad

I think this was ahi... The sauce that came with was nice!

Motsu ni- pork intestine stew.  The meat came in thin cube like strips (my first time seeing them in that form).

Gingko nuts-  They may look wet in appearance, but the gingko nuts
tasted dry on the inside and had a bold flavor.

YuDofu- A tofu soup with ponze.  I didn't expect the big cubes of tofu to fill me up the fastest!

Ika butter- stir fried squid with butter

Tofu steak- Somewhat the shape of a steak, but not a steak!

Butabara- pork belly (Tare/Shio)

Asparagus

Shiitake- these mushrooms had a nice, thick flesh.

Garlic potato- deep fried potato with garlic butter.  This is a great dish for all you potato lovers.

Tsukune- ground chicken and pork (Tare/Shio)

Spicy salmon donburi- They meshed a lot of salmon into that small bowel!

Cold soba noodles- These were under the shime section (foods that you should eat last), they hit the spot!  The noodles was cold to the point that they were soothing while eating them. 

Tofu mousse- Homemade vanilla tofu mousse.  This dessert was a surprise to me.  It may look like just a regular tofu, but its actually sweet!

Vanilla ice cream with homemade green tea syrup- The waiter had poured the syrup onto the ice cream in front of me,  what a great presentation!  Well you can't see the design now that the ice cream has melted...

These were some of the dishes we had!  Each of the small dishes had distinct and impressionable qualities.  Just by looking at these pictures again I can remember how great many of these dishes were.  Kyara is now definitely one of my favorite Japanese food spots to go to!

Stockholm Trip '17

Over a month ago, my husband and I embarked on our first trip to Europe!!! We were there for a couple weeks and spent our time exploring the capital cities of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.  The two things I found most captivating was the art, especially the architecture, and the food!  Our trip started in Oslo, Norway and Copenhagen, Denmark (check out the links at the end of the post for more details) and ended our Euro trip in Stockholm, Sweden: AB CafĂ© Never in my whole life did I eat pastries and drink coffee every morning until I arrived in Europe! A lot of pastries I had were hearty which left me wanting to have at least one daily.  In the neighborhood near where we were staying at was  AB CafĂ© .  This is a small, cozy cafe where you can have a small bite to eat and drink before you start your day.  Pictured below is their Key Lime Sandwich, latte, and a bullar (sweet bun).  It was a nice fika !

Birthday Month!

For my 30th birthday, I decided to celebrate it for the entire month of November.   Since I've reached this milestone in my life, why not spread out the celebration?  Here are highlights of my birthday month: Cake, Cake, Cake My coworker got me this lovely Guava Cake from Andrea's World of Cakes , thank you Fran! Hawaii Trip '16 My family and I were in Hawaii for a bit.  Being there for my birthday was not the primary reason though :p We had this 'ono (delicious) and authentic Hawaiian meal from Waiahole Poi Factory : Don't forget the chili water and Shoyu! There's been many poke bowl shops poppin' up in Vegas.  But none yet that I've been to can beat the OG poke bowls from Hawaii!  Pictured here are poke bowls with simply marinated raw fish and rice.  We also had some sashimi and musubis from Foodland Farms : Li Hing Mui Frost from Frostcity :                   These huge Banana Mac Nut Pancakes with Coco
