Julian Serrano!!

4 Jun

Located in Las Vegas at the Aria Hotel. As many of you guys know Vegas offers some of the best restaurants in the world so anytime I’m out there I try to take advantage and go to as many different restaurants as possible. Since I stay at the Aria Hotel most of the times I’m in Vegas I have dined at most of the restaurants inside the hotel more than a few times except for Julian Serrano so I was pretty excited to try it. After trying the variety of dishes we ordered I was a bit disappointed. The Calamari was excellent!! One of the most tender pieces of calamari I’ve tasted. Probably one of the 2 dishes that I really enjoyed.

Ahi tuna on a bed of seasoned seaweed in special sauce!! Definitely one of the better dishes!!!

20120604-223500.jpg
Creamy Risotto with Mushrooms and Manchego!! I’ve had better tasting risotto but still pretty good!!

20120604-231553.jpg
Chorizo with fried eggs and fried potatoes. Not too impressed. Something I could have put together.

20120605-001042.jpg
Shrimp in garlic sauce!! Also a dish that I could have done without.

Paella!! I was really looking forward to this dish but it looks way better than it tastes. Not only was the rice a bit hard to chew but overall flavor was very disappointing!! 😦

Caviar!! The lemon filling was made with a gelatin type of texture and it went so well with the caviar. Didn’t expect it to be so good but it was so refreshing and tasty!! 😉

Seabass in special sauce!! This dish looked better than it tasted. It was way too salty for my taste. I actually couldn’t take more than two small bites before I stopped eating it. 😦

Filet mignon on a bed of steamed spinach!!

20120603-221335.jpg

Yellow House Cafe!!

29 May

Kimchi Cream Pasta with bacon!! Kimchi is a side dish that most Korean’s enjoy with their bowl of rice so initially I was a little weary of how it would taste in a pasta dish but it surprisingly went so well with the cream sauce and bacon!! 😉

Hot stone seafood fried rice!!

20120529-145020.jpg
Perfect ending. Shaved ice with fruit, condensed milk, red bean & mochi rice cake!! 😉
