Off-strip Vegas gem Hobak Korean BBQ is a family favorite because we miss having access to Korean bbq in Wilmington, NC. Our years in SoCal and Virginia were filled with adventuresome Asian shopping and dining out. Sadly, the only BBQ in the south is Carolina BBQ, which is great, don’t get me wrong, but it’s nothing like Korean BBQ! Korean BBQ is a communal eating experience right at your table, washed down with Soju or Hite Beer or..at least at Hobak… a beer and soju tower right at your table that is a ready-to-pour tap of goodness! The meats at … Continue reading Hobak Korean BBQ will leave you full of happy!
Took a break from typical Vegas and visited off-strip gem Bacci Burgers for their innovative Asian themed burgers. From the ice-cold Nigori sake… To the oxtail chili cheese fries…spicy goodness…. …the most excellent Bahn mi Burger… Medium rare Angus burger with pork pate, fried egg and pickled carrot slaw.served with more house pickled veggies. And gilding the lily with truffle fries… Our amusing, former musician host completed the experience with his wit and abilities. So many off the strip gems here! Stay tuned for Hobak Korean Bbq in my next post! Continue reading Burgers and fries “Vegas style”

One of my passions is exploring the parts of cities where the locals go. Eating the food and having the experiences that are true to your destination. Most folks who visit Las Vegas stay on the strip and feast on fast food, designer chef restaurants and buffets. If you are willing to stretch a little further, you will have some wonderful dining experiences that don’t break the bank. We discovered a little gem in Chinatown called Inyo. A no frills setting in a strip mall serves up some of the best Asian cuisine I have ever had. Though they … Continue reading Chinatown Gem/ Las Vegas eats
