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!

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
