1 day until delicious kogi tacos hit my senses…..
(2009.03.31 – haven’t been back after another visit…. food has just been average….. )
Kaya ??… a reopening from bar to restaurant. On the menu, it was classified as a seafood grill? I dunno, but whatever restaurant it is, it was tasty. It reminds me of a fusion Korean grill and sushi bar. Again, I forgot to get a card, but it’s downstairs under the staircase right down from Cafe Noodle. =)
4355 Spring Mountain Rd (approximately, because this is cafe noodles’ addy)
Las Vegas NV 89102
Next to cafe noodle…
1. Seasoned Steamed Pork Belly – wrap this fat boi with veggies, some kimchi and pickled daikon. server said it’s one of the top sellers.
2. Lettuce wraps with fried soft shell crab – deep fried soft shell crab! can’t go wrong, ya?
3. Crispy Rice with Tuna on top (?) – i liked the crunchy texture of the crispy rice on the bottom
4. Hook up from the restaurant – strawberry and vanilla asian style sundae – the cornflakes and fresh fruit chunks made it pretty yummy. still doesn’t beat Honey Toast!
Other items that was just whatevers – Seared Hamachi Toro and beef tongue
ok peoples…. are you ready for this one? I visited socal this Labor Day Weekend because I totally missed the beach, and of course, all my favorite food! I didn’t hit up everything that I wanted, but this was a pretty good sampling. Yip!

blueberry haute cakes got a nice gritty cornmeal consistency. not too sweet and yummy with the side of warm syrup.
huevos benedictos – i think i would have liked it better if the beans hadn’t leaked all over the place. i guess i just have to eat faster?
mexican scramble – our fav of the meal. guac, tomatoes, onions. cheese…. yummy!
forgot the name of this glorified ding dong – very rich and yummy and it tasted amazing because we were so hungry!
