Yabby Hut is All Over My Fingers June 24, 2014

Yabby Hut is probably the most messy food I have ever had. But it is fantastical. I am a huge fan or seafood, and if you are, then you have to go to Yabby Hut.  Is is located off Wadsworth and Hampden in a small shopping center. The gist of it is, everything is market price and you selected it by the bunch.  Examples are shrimp by the pound or crab is by the cluster. You pick your sauce, then your heat and if you want any add ons like sausage or potatoes. Once you receive the food, you dump in onto the table and eat everything with your hands.  It is super messy, but super amazing.  I think it has killed seafood at other restaurants for me.  We heard about their birthday celebration and jaunted on down. The place was nuts. This did not stop them from giving great service and having great food. If you like seafood, then this is a must.

Rice Sushi and Bistro in Aspen Grove June 11, 2014

I love sushi so much.  I am actually on somewhat of a diet, and sushi is in my list of great foods to eat while trying to lose weight. I had been wanting to eat here for a while and finally stopped by.  The service was amazing! We were greeted by numerous people and seated quickly.  The manager, possibly owner, was always stopping by to make sure everything was good and that we had water constantly. We selected some crab cheese wontons,  a few rolls, yellowtail and some sake. All things add up to an excellent meal.  Great sushi, good flavors, and a wide variety on the menu. I had a hard time picking what I wanted because their menu was so large. I will definitely be back!! Kudos to the whole staff on their great service!

Hurricane Grill and Wings May 6, 2014

Now that I have moved to Littleton, I have a whole new area of town to sniff out.  I have started with Hurricane.  I have heard mixed things about this place and now after going twice,  have a few mixed feelings as well. The service seems iffy and the drinks are a bit expensive.  The food, on the other hand, is absolutely tasty. I ordered the salmon with a mango sauce on top, cheese covered broccoli and a cup of slaw.  The salmon fell apart, it was extremely tender. Brian went with the wing sampler, which gives you 4 flavor options out of the 30 something flavors to pick from.  Great choices and different levels of heat. If you could stand to have mediocre service, then I think you should go there just to try the awesome food.

El Toro the Tot Truck May 4, 2014

Filed under: Denver — sethocfreak @ 1:05 pm

This food truck was at The South Denver Beer Fest and it was calling my name. I walked up to the counter and asked the girl what she recommended. She said the Juicy Lucy was the best.  So, that is what I will have! Excellent cooked burger.  The name did not lie, it was extremely juicy and messy.  The messier the burger, usually the better it tastes. This was no exception. It crumbled in my hands and exploded with flavor and juiciness.  Great food truck.  Check it out if you see it around Denver!

Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar May 1, 2014

Filed under: Vegas — sethocfreak @ 6:50 pm

I am a big fan of Guy, so when I happen to be standing right in front of his new restaurant in Vegas, I had to try it. We couldn’t settle on just one beer, so we went with the recommendation of the bartender and got the Flight to Flavortown.  It is 16 taster beers. What a great idea.  If you finish all of the beers, you get a free t-shirt.  Of course, I got a free t-shirt.  :) To go with the beer, I wanted to try the lollipop wings that were also recommended. The bartender mentioned that they were not hot, just had a nice kick. She was a liar.  They were on fire hot. Amazing, but hot. I can still taste the sauce.  Served with wasabi, blue cheese dressing and celery sticks, this was a fantastic dish.  I highly suggest having these!

Yellowtail @Bellagio

I have been dreaming about eating yellowtail at Yellowtail for years.  Every time I am in the area, I am either broke or it is before 5 pm.  They open at pm each day.  This time, it actually happened.  Boy was I not disappointed.  We walked in and sat at the bar.  I ordered the yellowtail serrano.  I am not usually a fan of the pepper on top, but this was the best yellowtail I have ever had, and the serrano made it even better.  The fish literally melted on my tongue.  It had an amazing burst or fish and pepper as a great contrast.   We ordered eel sushi as well, and it was the same way.  My god; this was the best sushi I have ever had in my life.  We eat got a draft beer each and th bill was roughly $75.  I know you are thinking, that isn’t much.  But it was LITERALLY the best sushi of my life. Well worth the cost.  I am very happy that I got to finally eat here. Sorry the pictures are bad.  It is very dark in the restaurant.

RM Seafood in Mandalay Bay April 30, 2014

We ran across an ad showing happy hour for RM Seafood and decided that we should check it out. During their happy hour, they only have a raw bar. But it is cheap. We had 6 mussels, 2 oysters, 2 hand rolls, a martini and a beer for less than $20. It was the perfect small bite that we need to keep going during gambling and have a great tasty eat.  My only complaint about this house hour, the menu is not that much to pick from.
