I have been to Honey Salt on numerous occasions now and this was my favorite dish, thus far! Unique, eclectic vibe, tons of inside artistic scenery seating and an acquaint outside lime green seated patio , craft drinks and locally discovered ingredients coming your way.
The only other menu I’ve experienced, at similar degree was EAT, in the downtown, Las Vegas area. One of the only successful restaurants with the downtown project. Honey Salt, on the other hand is branching out and the partners are opening new restaurants in the Summerlin area.
Both Honey Salt’s Lunch, Brunch and Dinner menu all have specialty items that are not on any other menu and the breakfast pizza with succulent apple wood, smoked bacon with the right amount of cheese is not a bad way to start your Sunday!

This is one of the best Thai restaurants in Vegas, hands down. It’s conveniently located around the corner from me, hidden behind Starbucks. This is somewhere you will need to make reservations for, every night of the week. A small, eclectic, family owned one stop shop for your favorite (and new favorite) thai dishes. Everything i’ve ordered is so carefully prepared and tasty, you will not be disappointed! The first time I visited Nittayas, everyone at the bar were locals that return weekly and have tried everything on the menu. Here’s what they recommended!
PS: every thurs is 1/2 off a selection of wine’s (changes)
Unique Spinach Salad– each leaf lightly battered and fried! Served with a spicy cashew dipping sauce
Green Curry (spicy) Salmon with eggplant and zucchini and jasmine rice
I did all my shopping for last nights BBQ at Trader Joes, minus the XL artichokes and prime cuts, compliments of Costco! I love TJ’s during the Fall Season, between new pumpkin cranberry pita chips and their new balsamic glaze, I had tons of ideas to BBQ.
Grilled artichokes are so easy to make and super healthy, rich in phytonutrients, antioxidants and dietary fibré! Simply boil the artichokes (2 in picture) for at least 20 Min., halve them from the stem, upwards till they break apart and drizzle olive oil, sea salt and set for 10-15min (allow all oil to seep through to make them extra juicy off the grill. Lastly, BBQ on medium for 15-20 min watching carefully to make sure they do not burn! I served this as an appetizer, alongside manchego cheese, flax water crackers and pumpkin pita chips.
For the dipping sauce-
1/4 C organic mayo
2 Tsp dijon (or any grainy mustard)
2 Slices of lemon juiced
Side 1- Fingerling potatos
preheat oven to 450 degrees
2 cloves sliced garlic
1 large shallot
2 tbs olive oil
1 tsp oregano
Mix all ingredients and roast for 20-30min til golden brown
Side 2- Grilled Asparagus
Rise and cut off the fibrous endings. Toss in olive oil, salt and pepper, grill for 10-15min (watching closely)
Prime Glazed Steak
For the Marinade- 3 Tbs balsamic glaze, 2 crushed garlic cloves, 3 Tbs dijon mustard, sea salt. Let sit in fridge for at least 3hrs
Wait for the grill on high to reach 500 degrees. For medium rare, I grilled ~13 min each side (these were HUGE). Perfection….!
A little something to pack for a hike at Red Rock. This is super simple, easy to pack and tasty after a few hours of hiking!
1 ezekiel wheat tortilla
2 heaping Tbs of your favorite hummus
5-6 slices cucumber
4 slices romano tomato

My parents came to visit and brought along two birds from London. I gave my parents a tour of my Summerlin frequent happy hour spots (soon to post) and then had an incredible lunch at Mon Ami Gabi, across from Bellagio’s water fountain show at Paris Hotel.
I ordered the seafood crepe with jumbo shrimp and sea scallops in a light cream sauce and peas. Along with a few fries from my new British friends hamburgers and a Wynn morning workout, I was completely satisfied.
Mon Ami Gabi is a beautiful setting, reasonably priced french dining with a non-invasive patio to overlook the heart of the strip.
So easy and delicious!

Compliments of Whole Food’s fresh ingredients! I have so much left over and filled three hungry stomachs. Pizzas are fun to make and you can personalize it to the T.
I made one simple “hawaiian style” and then other with 1/2 pesto artichokes, spinach and fresh mozzarella cheese. Whole Foods semi-cooked (it’s not dough) pizzas made these super simple and quick.
Pesto, artichoke heart, spinach, sprinkled pineapple, basil and fresh mozzarella cheese
Canadian smoked ham (WF), pineapple, fresh mozzarella and dried oregano
* Heat oven to 425 degrees. Load up ingredients of your choice on top of A) a creamy white sauce B) pizza sauce (WF) or C) Pesto

1740 O’Farrell Street San Francisco, CA 94115
This restaurant is in the heart of San Francisco. I visited months ago and remember it like it was yesterday. I have since been back to San Francisco and have not found anything like Fat Angel across the state! I caught up with a best friend here after a late arrival flight and with a mouthwatering pizza, zesty salad and a bottle of zin, we made out well under $65.
Wild mushroom, white truffle oil w/ pecorino-thin crust pizza
Endive, apple, candied walnuts, gorgonzola w/ cider vinaigrette salad
I prefer sitting at the bar here, unless its a lunch out on the patio. Service is always much better and I met a wine Sommelier that enlightened me on my favorite types of wine!
