Tasting Las Vegas: The Podcast - Episode 02, Chef Lorin Watada of Bachi Burger

This week on Tasting Las Vegas: The Podcast, I’m joined with The Wife and she does a fine job of breaking my balls right from the get go!  We talk about some good and not so good eats we’ve had recently, talk about a recent exchange between me and Haute Living’s Susan Stapleton and reveal our 5 Late Night Chow Spots That Can’t Be Missed.  Also, I chat with Chef and Co-Owner of Bachi Burger, Lorin Watada, where we talk in depth about his beginnings in the industry, moving from corporate life to owning his own private place, as well as the birth of Bachi Burger. We also talk about the value of restaurant critics and discuss the now infamous review of Bachi Burger by John Curtas.  Then The Wife makes her triumphant return for The News With The Wife, we share the TLV Cheap Eats of the Week and so much more!
