Echo & Rig

One of the new Las Vegas restaurants to eat at is Echo & Rig, located in Tivoli Village:


One unique thing about this steakhouse is that they have butchers!  So if you really enjoyed their meats, you can learn more from a professional and bring some meat home:


Echo & Rig specializes in assortment of steaks:


We had heard that people raved over their Portobello Fries with Herb Aioli.  These thick slices of portobello fries were absolutely delicious!  This appetizer is worth trying:


My friends got the Bone Marrow Carne Asada:


I wanted to try a vegetable appetizer, so I ordered the Pumpkin Squash, Rosemary & Brown Sugar.  It was nicely cooked by it not being soggy, and light in sweetness:


Entree time!  These all cost $17.70, not bad for paying for fine quality meats.  I got to sample each of my friends' dishes and I could taste the freshness and juiciness in each of them, especially the lamb:

I had the Mary’s Chicken- ½ roasted chicken with white grits, herbs de Provence, and au jus.  The chicken paired quite well with the grits and the chicken was moist!:


My friend got the Sea Bass ala Plancha: with crispy skin and olive oil dipping sauce:


My husband got the Wood Roasted Salmon with Béarnaise.  This usually comes with meat juice, but since my spouse is a pescetarian, they didn't mind not including the meat juices:


My other friend got Colorado Lamb Porterhouse Chops with Peewee potatoes, dried apricots, and violet mustard:


We just had to get another appetizer.  This is the Grilled Octopus, Gigante Beans, Garlic & Green Olive Vinaigrette- this unique dish was surprisingly light to me!  I would've never pictured octopus with these beans, garlic, and vinaigrette:


Lovely view from the patio:


It was such a nice dining experience at Echo & Rig.  I look forward to eating their other dishes!

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
