Restaurant Review - China Mama
China Mama is a Chinese restaurant located at 3420 S Jones Blvd in Las Vegas, right across the 168 market. Chinese food is all that I grew up on so it is difficult to impress me. I would say the food is tasty and authentic but nothing too special. The one thing I like is the portions are large! One bowl of noodle soup can easily feed 2. Another plus is they offer dao xiao mien or wide hand pulled noodles which, in my opinion, is better than regular thin noodles. They have a lot to choose from from Chinese pancakes and xiao long bao, to beef noodle soups and pork chops and rice. Pretty spacious and clean inside with semi-helpful staff. Prices are fair especially relative to the portion size. The fried pork was a bit greasy/soggy though. I'd probably come back once in a while, especially if I'm craving a lot of noodles in a large bowl of soup.
Show - The Love Show Beatles
The Love at Mirage is a Cirque du Solei show about the music of The Beatles. If you aren't a Beatles fan, it is still a good production with some special effects, lots of dancing/acrobatics, and memorable scenes like the "blanket" act. I would not rank this show very high among the other Cirque shows if action, intense acrobatics, and special effects are your priority. However, if you want to watch a relaxing, musical show with tribute to The Beatles, this show is perfect for you. On the plus side, there are no bad seats in the arena and would actually prefer the seats in the back to get a view of everything.
Restaurant Review - Skinny Fats
This place gets pretty busy during peak hours so be prepared to wait for a table. The menu is split into basically two categories, healthy (skinny), and not so healthy (fat). The pictures above are the ahi taco san, naked chix, and nice to greek you. The food has a very unique, delicious, and filling taste. In fact, every item on the menu seems very appetizing and makes you want to go for a second time. The atmosphere and service was great as well, with custom art on the walls, a large wooden table for a big party, even outlets with usb ports if you want to hang out with your laptop. Check them out at 8680 W Warm Springs Rd in Las Vegas.
