Nosh Las Vegas

Since last September, Nosh Las Vegas has been hosting food tours at the Caesars Palace.  I did not know what to expect just knowing we were going to sample foods from a few restaurants at this casino.  Our guide Joel was very informative and funny.  Other than talking about the restaurants we went to, Joel gave a history lesson about Las Vegas and how it tied in with food.  Also, at these five restaurants, there was an employee or two from each one who gave us a rundown on how their establishment operates.  I don't want to delve into much of the details about this tour; you just have to go, see, and taste the food yourself!

For our first stop we went to Beijing Noodle No. 9.  They specialize in Northern Chinese cuisine-noodles are eaten more at the north and more rice is eaten at Southern China.

 Pork and Shrimp Dumpling:


Hand pulled noodles:


Tomato and Egg with Hand Pulled Noodle, you can tell just by the first bite these were handmade and not from a factory:


On our second stop we went to Payard Pâtisserie & Bistro.  We were given this little box:


Inside was a Payard Truffle:


We were told these chocolate truffles come from this 16 ft Chocolate Clock aka the "Willy Wonka Clock": 


A demonstration of how a crepe is made:


Delightful macarons:


Rocher chocolates:


More chocolates:



They have a pastry counter in front of the bistro if you just want grab a bite to go:


Our third stop was at Old Homestead Steakhouse.  We were educated on how they get their steaks to the restaurant and that they only serve prime steak, which were quite tender!  Their tater tots were also excellent.  Instead of being deep-fried in oil like the norm, these are cooked in duck fat and have a crispy outer layer:


At Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill we sampled foods that are normally served for private parties like deviled eggs and drank some Innis & Gunn IPA.  I liked how they have different dining environments for patrons to choose such as the loud bar vibe or a more quiet intimate setting:





For our last stop, we ate at Slice at the Cypress Street Market.  Our guide said don't be turned off by being at the food court, he assured their pizza was really good, and I absolutely agree!  Slice's mushroom pizza with goat cheese was one of the best I've had.  The consistency and flavor was in a perfect balance.  The food court will be going through a renovation and will be taking out all of the fast food joints except Slice, so thats an obvious hint on how good this place is:


I had a great time at Nosh's food tour - you get to learn about food, eat, and learn about the different aspects about the restaurants.  All this will make you appreciate more the hard work that  is put in daily to make each restaurant running.  Our guide told us they hope to open more tours in other casinos - I hope they get to expand soon!

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
