There are times when I would rather take photos of food than eat. I got carried away -  the lighting, decorations, and food were all too pretty. I had to capture ever bit of this moment. Let's taco-bout it!
Banana Churros { ibarra chocolate sugar & dulce de leche }
Hmm I could do without the sauce, it tasted like condensed milk with caramel.
[Back to Front: Pork, Tuna]
2 for $10 Tacos: Tuna + Pork. 
Albacore Tuna Taco { soy, sesame, ginger, & wasabi mayo
I was very impressed with the generous slab of tuna that was in my taco, it was huge. The ginger on top meshes all the flavours together very nicely.
Pork Jowl Taco { cabbage, fried shallot, pineapple, & sriracha sauce }
Oh boy, I'm in love. The contrast between a soft taco and a crunchy filling is a nice balance compared to the tuna taco, which is "soft on soft." Superb. I wish it was a bit bigger.
[Left to Right/Top to Bottom: Churro, Burrito | Pork, Tuna + Yam, Tuna]
My friends got the 2for$10 combo and Bean and Cheese Burrito with sriracha sauce on the side.
Yam Tempura Taco { avocado, bonito flakes, & plum vinegar-soy }
Bean & Cheese Burrito { salsa fresca, cabbage, sour cream, & sriracha }
Chips & Salsa - pay extra $3 for guacamole
Yummy! I wish we didn't have to pay an extra three dollars for guac! Good but not as great as the ones that I had in Honduras.
Okay, Let's taco-bout the decor. I love cacti! My friends were making fun of me because I'm so amused by cacti. I eventually took a photo beside one of the cactus planters on the floor :P

The Venetian Las Vegas

My sister and I, with two friends, spent six days in California before heading over the Las Vegas (I will blog about that later). On Christmas Eve, we jumped on a flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas to meet our family. That one hour flight was probably the best flight I have ever had - very relaxing. We arrived at The Venetian hotel with warm greetings from our parents. It's a whole different world once you step inside the hotel. The beautiful décor, flashy casinos, and the size of our room was amazing! I could get use to this…

The fries at the Bacchanal Buffet (Caesars Palace)

Our first dinner in Vegas was at the Bacchanal Buffet (Caesars Palace). I went crazy on the seafood, drinks, and desserts. The cooked snow crabs, Jonah crab, raw oysters, pineapple juice, and chocolate Carmel strawberries were my favorite. I also had my very first raw oyster here. Check out what I ate on Instagram  @tea.latte
