This is truly one of my favorite food spots in Vegas.

Rabbit boudin swimming in English pea butter sauce. Served with potato dumplings. The meat tasted tender, juicy, and a touch gamey. In a good way.

Flashback to dinner at Main Street Provisions in downtown Las Vegas. My favorite spot is at the bar, sipping an Old Fashion.

Australian wagyu beef sliders at Main Street Provisions in Las Vegas
Sliders made with Australian Wagyu beef. I added foie gras. I couldn’t eat this with my hands because of the juicy meat and cheese sauce. So it turned into a delicious burger salad with fries.

My hubby and I celebrated our 6th anniversary at Papillon in Fremont last weekend. Our wedding date falls just a day after our first date ever.
