Other Mama

It's been awhile since I've blogged about a restaurant in my hometown, Las Vegas!  Being a new parent has made me busy bee, so I have been putting up quick posts on the @CheerUpWithFood Instagram here and there instead.  I will continue blogging when I get the chance though! 

 Over the weekend I dined at Other Mama.  Since I'm a big seafood lover, it was hard to decide what I wanted to try.  As you can see on Daily Specials, they offer an interesting variety of seafood:

Daily Specials!

They also serve beer, wine, and cocktails:

Try saying the name of this brewery seven times

In Vegas it's not often that you see Hush Puppies (cornbread balls) on a menu so I had to try their rendition.  These appetizers were soft, fluffy and it's subtle sweetness hit the spot:

On to the raw delights:

Amberjack Crudo- garnished with meyer lemon, radish, and chives

There were four types of oysters being served as the Daily Specials so we tried one of each:

Wico Mico, Hammersly, Pickering Pass, and Calm Cove oysters with wasabi cocktail, rosemary mignonette, ponzu salsa, and pickled pepper & habanero

Their Oyster Shooters were like a seafood medley!  I wish I could slurp 20 more of these:

A refined ceviche dish:

This was the first time I ate tostada bread perfectly crisp and the lobster and its garnishes were quite flavorful:

Oh my sweet tooth!  We were surprised with Honey Miso and Nutella Ice Cream, both made from scratch:

I never tasted ice cream so soft like this in a long time!  These could be confused with gelato

Eating at Other Mama reminded me how much I miss the food in Japan and I enjoyed how they infused flavors from other cuisines into their dishes! Thank you Ken for telling me about this place!

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
