Hamada of Japan - Rio

 
Hamada of Japan at Rio. Now you can use your Total Rewards credits here. Food was just OK and overpriced. No original food, you can get this type of food and quality anywhere. There is no reason I wanna eat here again. This place also has an all-you-can-eat sushi & dinner for $29.75 plus tax. All the food below plus one soda, the total was $57. It's probably a better deal to get all-you-can-eat.



Dynamite, $11.50














Tatsuta age, $9.50
It's Japanese-style fried chicken. $9.50 for something that I make every other week at home for less than $1?














Spicy Tuna $8.50, Egg $5.50, Albacore $6.25
Overpriced for quality.














Japanese Parfait, $9
Sweetened red beans, mixed fruits with Japanese Jello and choice of ice cream (I got red bean)














You can buy triple size of these anmitsu (mixed fruit and jello and beans) for a couple of dollars plus a scoop of ice cream. $9? For $9, I should get more than this.














5:30pm - 9:20pm; Thurs - Sun

Lucky's Cafe - Stratosphere 2008

Lucky's Cafe at Stratosphere in June 2008. It seems like they changed their menu. Calamari really sucked. It didn't taste like real squid, so we took off the batter and checked the squid, and it looked like plastic or fake squid. I don't know if there is fake squid but it didn't look real, so I don't recommend that. My husband got the turkey breast and I think he said it was real.

Roasted Turkey Breast, $12.99
served with garlic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus

Epicurean Affair - May 2008, Las Vegas (Part 2)

We were both so full by now, I just didn't wanna see the food anymore, and I couldn't eat most of it. I'm glad I tried good restaurant foods first. This Epicurean Affair was a very good experience.

Epicurean Affair - May 2008, Las Vegas (Part 1)

Pics from the Epicurean Affair in May 2008 at the Flamingo casino. We got 2 free VIP tickets. (It's worth around $100 each!) We could get in a couple hours before they open for the public. Even just VIP people, there were already a couple hundred people there and all were trying to get inside at the same time. There were dozens of different restaurants, I'm posting total 50 pics, but we couldn't finish eating everything. We were here for 2 hours, just keep walking and eating, but 2 hours wasn't enough time to check out all the restaurants. If you are going next year, make sure you are hungry, because there are so much food to try. Your stomach will feel like after a buffet.
