Let’s talk about food for a moment. Or rather, let’s imagine a place where you can satiate your hunger, make ya smile, and leave you reeling and feeling drunk from merely eating some small dank food plates. This place is no fiction, it is the Nosh & Swig joint on Flamingo.
By Jove! I’ve only sampled a handful of dishes here thus far, but each time I leave here I feel like I’ve found some hidden gem. And it’s a gem I’d rather share with others, so that others may enjoy the bounty of delicious plates which the Nosh & Swig has to offer.
It’s high noon, and Miss Blonde and I are on our daily search of something delicious to eat. And then it happened. One of us suggests Nosh & Swig! It’s game on, and there’s nothing that will stop us from reaching our destination. Surprisingly, there’s only a handful of tables seated, and once again it’s like finding that hidden waterfall in the desert. So Miss Blonde and I waste no time and peruse the menu for the latest and greatest to stuff into each of our heads!
Nachos O’Brien, easiest first choice ever. While just about everything on the menu sounded great, this one, on the pork menu, whispered a sweet nothing into my belly and said, “Put me in food porn King!”. I obliged. Peppered pork (bacon!), house potato chips, dublin cheddar, and stewed tomatoes, made this one unbelievably good appetizer to kick off our regal feast.
This dish arrived in the middle of the Nachos O’Brien orgy, and I graciously accepted this plate to the feast. I quickly lanced a few which promptly found their way to my belly with haste. The house battered crunchy chicken with a sweet and sour bbq sauce was dynamite! Bink.
Miss Blonde and I were then assaulted by the pretzel brats! This chicken sausage, with cheese gravy and sauerkraut on a pretzel roll was another heady plate. I shook my head NO while I munched but in reality I was saying yes, YES A THOUSAND TIMES! I felt like I reunited in some weird way with my Germanic roots. Either way I felt animal, which is a great state of being.
The carne asada sandwich arrived. I look it over, poke around a bit, and take a huge bite. I now feel like I’ve bonded with my brethren from south of the border. The black bean spread was delicious, the cucumber feta pico was outstanding, and this carne asada slider was just dank-a-licious!
I have now both noshed and swigged my way to food porn glory! And I plan on doing it again and again. It’s good for the soul. I highly recommend you do the same.
