Right on, bro.

So I am not a vegetarian (love bbq and real chinese food and just about every cuisine under the sun), but I believe that as a culture Americans eat WAY TOO MUCH meat.  And I just got back from Vegas, and since I do not gamble, the only other indulgences for me (since I have a GF) are food and drink... gluttony FTW!  As such I ate more meat in a week than I typically do in a month.  So I got back and decided to go vegetarian for a week starting yesterday.  

 

Dinner last night:   Homemade kimchi (fermented for 6 weeks) over quinoa.  Delicious, filling and so healthy!

 

picture of kimchi fermenting (taste better than it looks haha)... Maybe not food porn, but porn for your belly!

What places did you hit in Vegas? Some folks here have been alleging Vegas has some good places.

There's apparently some kind of mansion that has a restaurant. I forget what it's called though.

"food for ppl who hate food".  You obviously have no idea what you are talking about.

Why does your homemade kimchi have a very commercial looking label on it?

So I just switched jobs so I did not hit the baller restaurants, but there is some fantastic ethnic food there...  Monta Noodle house... tiny menu, cheap and food comes out in like 5 minutes!  it is a ramen noodle house:

 

(yes i take pictures of my food often... I do most of my cooking at home so it is fun to remember the things that i tried... I know some people think taking photos of food is silly and yeah my photos suck haha!)

We also tried to hit Lotus of Siam which I have been told my many Thai aficionados is the best anywhere west of new york (i just dont know if there is anything better on the east coast). But, they were closed for the week for their fourth of july holiday... i was so bummed!

 

We also hit Yonaka which is sushi/hot plate japanese contemporary... This was probably the "nicest" meal we had (ramen may have been my favorite though haha).  It was beautiful and delicious!  The octopus dish with melon was incredible and the sushi presentation, beautifull... actually all of the dishes were pretty beautiful.  In regards to sushi quality, it was hit or miss... to be fair though, we came on a sunday, which is a big no no for fresh sushi (only came here when our first two choices were closed)... but if it was that good on sunday, i could only imagine how good it is on a friday!.. definitely a place to go if you want to try some more creative dishes at a good price.  I am under the impression that you should go elsewhere if you are just looking for sashimi.

 

The dishes were not all perfect but the ones that were good, were really good.

Ichiza off spring mountain blvd in china town.  I do not really have any good photos but it was pretty fun.  Really crowded with locals and had a great vibe... Some of the food was good some was meh, but the ambience and small plate style made for a great experience... They are apparently known for their yellow tale sashimi and it was amazing... I tried some tuna too and it sucked... IDK, i would think that with a good fish monger everything would at least be decent (went on a friday) but i guess not.  Beef heart was great squid was rubbery... too rubbery... kimchi pork stir fry was very good and miso cod was stellar!

 

And the only fast food i truly love; in n out burger... I am a nazi about processed food with additives (yes i know technically most food (flour for instance) is processed... but you know what i mean), so to find a fast food burger where the bun is made from a sponge starter every day and the fries are cut in front of you, just makes me so happy... fast food with some integrity.  And of course it taste awesome!!! ( we do not have in n out in missouri)

haha, damn you found me out!   just kidding... because I am in the wine industry, i know a lot of the staff at many local restaurants... I was talking to one of them and they hooked me up with four free gallon jars that i use for kombucha tea and kimchi.

I'm not in the wine industry so I have a larger than average penis. I also don't make my own kimchi.

ah man you totally got me! I totally meant to brag about my prestiges role in the wine industry (that anybody with the desire to learn about wine could acquire) that is so awesome and better than you will ever achieve... it is so hard to learn about wine! i bet every body on this forum is so jealous of me........no one reading this (like lawyers and doctors) could ever achieve my vasT knowledge of wine... such a complex subject LOL!!!!!!!  You are the stupidist person that has commented on this thread!.  Wine is simple to understand... I simply mentioned that it is my passion because i am happy with my vocation.

 

my recipe for kimchi??? michael polland not some kimchi master but simply a food aficionado... not some secret, just a dude into food.  There are a million better recipes than mine.

 

HOWEVER YOU WILL NOT RESPOND CUZ YOU ARE A DWEEB AND HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT.
