Learn from the Locals
Boba, Sushi, & a new section...
Hey! Welcome to this week’s issue of TheFoodieMaps LV, and a special welcome to our new subscribers.
My friends and I have a tradition of getting boba each Thursday, so this week we will be highlighting (and helping me plan out) some great boba places. After that, we have a section on sushi with one fancy and affordable pick! And last but not least, we have our newest section: Learn from the Locals. If you are a local who has something to say, be sure to shoot us a DM on Instagram! Let’s get to it.
⭐ Featured Dishes
2,500 Yelp Reviews? A Dish Called “Mean Bean”?
In 2013, the original SkinnyFATS opened its doors in the just outside of Las Vegas. The flagship store gained a ton of local popularity and today there are a ton of locations around the Vegas metro area. If your goal is to eat like a local, SkinnyFATS is a must-visit. Their menu consists of sassy-named dishes with menu items such as “Buff Chix” and “Balls.” What’s there not to like?
While the chain has much local popularity, there has also been a fair amount of hate, mostly being humorous reviews regarding the naming and vibes of SkinnyFATS. I just had to include this review as it made me chuckle.

🧋 Brown Sugar Deerioca Crème Brûlée Milk
📍 The Alley Tea
On the Strip, you can check out The Alley Tea in the Grand Canal Shoppes of The Venetian. There’s nothing like sipping on a delicious milk tea while on break from all the gambling and shopping :P
🧋 Strawberry Breeze & Matcha Creme Brulee Dirty Boba
📍 Feng Cha Teahouse
The Matcha Creme Brûlée looked so aesthetic in this picture, I just had to share. Soon after discovering this post, I paid Feng Cha a visit and was not disappointed! The drink certainly felt more like a dessert than a tea, but it was no short of delicious. I plan to return soon to try one of there many special-tea drinks (get it?).
All you can eat!
🍣. All you can east Sashimi
📍 Hikari Sushi and Teppanyaki
Finding a good AYCE place is a delicate balance of quality and price. From their online traction and popularity, it seems Hikari Sushi and Teppanyaki has the best of both worlds.
Yellowtail at Yellowtail?
🍣. Yellowtail Jalapeño
📍 Yellowtail Japanese Restaurant and Bar by Akira Back
Located in Bellagio, this higher end Japanese Restaurant offer both traditional and contemporary dishes. Chef Akira, previously a professional snowboarder, has been awarded several Michelin Stars for his creations. I mean, just take a look at some of their pictures!
📍 Learn from the Locals: Sushi Edition
There’s no one better to learn about local cuisine than from a local. Each time I move somewhere new, I always stumble across the best food recs from long-time residents. In this section, we will compile some of what the locals of Vegas and its surrounding suburbs have to say about sushi in particular.
