Moko Asian Bistro, Las Vegas, NV in Pics

I've mentioned before that I don't really care to review restaurants anymore. At some point, scrutinizing your meals down to minute details really begins to suck joy out of the dining experience. But I do like to share those restaurant experiences with that magical blend of food, service, and value where my last thought as I leave is that I'd really like to return.

We went to Moko Asian Bistro for a late lunch after our annual Red Rock Canyon hike after a failed attempt to dine there the night before when it was closed. (I have a horrible habit of ignoring yelp when they tell me a place isn't open at a time when I want to visit. :/) Upon hearing my minor disappointment that the lunch menu was different from the dinner menu that lured me there in the first place, the owner graciously allowed us to order off the dinner menu, and the whole family enjoyed our meal start to finish. Delicious food; warm, friendly, and accommodating service; and a great value for the food concepts and level of execution they offer. An easy off-strip recommendation for those who like the idea of small plates and Korean-inspired fusion dishes.

Hope you enjoy the pics (with their descriptions of the dishes).
