I went to a Gelato Bar after my Korean meal, I figured what the hell, why not stop in.

It was a pretty average looking Gelato Bar. They said everything was made fresh each day, however, I highly doubt this fact as a reasonable business model. 

The prices were what you would get at cold stone or something. What I thought was interesting was the add ons, like boba and mango jellies on top. 

I paid $8.05 for my 2 scoops of strawberry and orange in a waffle cone. 

It was tasty, but to be honest, too much considering I just ate a full meal. I got down to the waffle cone part, but couldn’t finish it. 

The environment is decent and what you expect from a post-bar-hopping night. There was a fussball table and board games to play. As I was leaving, there was a group of 4 people dressed nicely. The two women in the group were excited and taste tested half the flavored. The two men paid. 

If that goes on all nights, that is a pretty good business at $8 a pop.

For those of you who want to eat Asian food in Las Vegas, know that there is a pretty large Asian community west of the strip on Sprint Mountain road. You can find any Asian sect of food you want plus a score of karaoke bars and foot parlors and grocery stores in this area. 

I went to a restaurant a strip mall called “Mr.Tofu,” a Korean spot next to a karaoke bar and a tiki bar. The place is pretty small but I’ve been coming here at least once a year the last 6-7 years. 

The food is a pretty good and the price is decent so it makes for a quick bite. For the first time in many years the menu was updated to include combo prices. In the past, the kimchee tofu soup was a seperate item for $8 but now it’s a $3 add on with a main dish. 

So I ordered a Diet Coke and a pork bulgogi combo and asked them to make my soup extra spicey. The order comes with some standard Korean side dishes that seems to change every time I go.

The tofu soup was hot as hell, the way I like it. The vegetables seemed fresh. 
The bulgogi was awesome. This is why I come here. For the price and quality it is hard to beat it in contrast to the prices on the strip.

With the total price plus tax and tip, I think I left $25.
