One of MANY new ramen joints popping up lately, I think I fancy this place over the extremely popular Monta Ramen. Soup is less salty, and I don’t feel like I’m drinking a whole vat of oil and salt. Plus, they have fancy tempura brussell sprouts with truffle oil. Ooooooooo. Also, doesn’t hurt that they’re playing some cool jams while you eat. Hello, Jinya!

It’s happened! Finally something that I’ve seen many times in SoCal coming to Vegas – Options on your sugar level on your tea drink! Why Las Vegas, did it take this long? Perhaps other tea shops do this as well, but Kung Fu tea has it detailed it out. *happy dance happy dance. Love the details in the shop, Kung Fu Tea. Keep up the good work.

Ending a wedding weekend full of fun in Mission Bay, of course we end it with nice fatty fat breakfast at Snooze! Way to load ourselves food coma inducing food right before a long drive back home.

Snooze Spuds Deluxe – Crispy hash brown loaded with cheese your choice of protein, and in my case, bacon!
Corned Beef Hash – This is of the REAL meat version. My peasant standards did not like it. Give me the pulverized fake meat!

The famous Tacos El Gordo. We finally made it. It was sticky, hot, and super sweaty, but it was delicious. Lengua. Pastor. Carne Asada Fries.

Tips: Each taco filling has dedicated station, so just scooch your bum right in there (don’t be shy) and get your food ordered.

Return for Awful Awful Burger

Wolf Den
1305 N Virginia St
Reno, NV 89503
(775) 324-9653

I returned to Reno recently to visit my good friend and college roommate Carla, and of course, we had to return to some our old food haunts. We used to indulge in the famous Awful Awful Burger with a full basket of fries, which I claim to have devoured all by myself, every single fry. This time we went to the newly renovated bar called the Wolf Den situated near the University of Nevada, Reno’s dorms. It proved to have the same Awful Awful burger that I remember from The Nugget, minus the greasy diner vibe and now trade it for the college hangout vibe. An advantage now is that school is currently out, so we got to dine in peace and did not have to battle parking. (Wow, I’m starting to sound old! Ha ha)

Bliss with my hamburger. Behold! … but I did not finish all my fries.

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.
