Flower Child brings easy, healthy cuisine to the ’burbs

June 14th, 2018

Hold on. There’s meat here, and it’s treated well.

  • Plus a warm and inviting patio, friendly staff and a kick-ass drink menu.

  • Eureka is a worthy addition to the Downtown scene.

  • Block 9 is less a new restaurant than a quick-service Secret Kitchen.

  • You won’t find Peruvian Nikkei elsewhere in Las Vegas, and it’s hard to locate anywhere else in the world other than Peru.

  • The new Italian spot in Summerlin falls somewhere between Scarpetta and D.O.C.G. with its casual cuisine and price points.

  • Koobideh—a kabob made of ground chicken or beef and seasoned with salt, pepper and onion powder—is a must-try.

  • At 99 cents each, you can make a reasonable meal from four of the steamed dumplings, which are like Chinese shumai—wonton wrappers swaddling savory pork.

  • This restaurant skips the sushi available at other Ohjah locations, so there’s more focus on tasty appetizers.

  • If there’s a special, order it. I tried a mindblower of soft tofu, braised seabass and a pork-tomato relish in a chile oil broth.

  • It’s perfect for a pre-party meal and/or post-show whiskey nightcap.

  • After a stint in Los Angeles, the chef returns to his native city with a vision that emphasizes fare that's fresh, local and made in-house.

  • The food here is so consistently good, you should take some chances.

  • Beyond tacos, the menu features a collection of ceviches, cocktails and tostadas, all of them seafood-centric.

  • The more time I spend there, the more time I want to spend there.
