In a town of fancy foods and celebrity chefs, eat. brings it back to simple food. The biscuits brought me back to my imaginary biscuit baking grandma’s kitchen with perfectly sweet berries. This was a mop it up and lick up the sauce moment, but I held back to not embarrass my husband. Though my truffled egg sandwich had the often fancy ingredient at high priced restaurants, this sandwich just brought it back to the roots, simple ingredients made well – fluffy eggs with just the right amount of truffle essence with thick cut bacon in between oh-so-amazing cloud-like pieces of ciabatta bread. Despite often being a fan of potatoes cut to smithereens and then deep fried to an unrecognizable state, I even ate all the big hunks of real pan fried potatoes.
Go to eat to just eat.

District One in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (a.k.a. Saigon for ya old schoolers) is the hip district to be in Vietnam. It’s the most industrial and even has it’s own Rodeo Drive-esque area to shop in.
Bring this back to District One Kitchen & Bar in Las Vegas. It’s hip. It’s new. It’s a twist on Vietnamese food. While our parents generation may complain that portion sizes are small (really?) and it’s too expensive (*tsk tsk to us spendy American born children), but I find it a refreshing spin on food that wasn’t necessarily viewed as trendy before. Looking around the restaurant, it brings in people from all walks of life to enjoy fresh, tasty foods with inspired by vibrant colors and tastes of Vietnamese food. Go try it yourself. Just don’t bring your immigrant parents. 😉
