Fans of liver and onions sound off popular

Liver and onions is truly an old-fashioned dish. With the increased popularity of world cuisine, are any restaurants even serving it anymore?

A whole bunch, clearly. Last week’s liver-and-onions query from reader Jim Plumer generated more responses than any in recent memory.

Winn and Beverly Cousino suggested Mimi’s Cafe, Mary Erickson suggested Claim Jumper — all of which have multiple locations in the valley — Emelyn Delacruz recommended Cafe Cortez at the El Cortez at 600 Fremont St., Libby Casolari, Judi Caro and Sheryl Siegl recommended the Grand Cafe at Red Rock Resort at 11011 W. Charleston Blvd., Gary Patton recommended M&M Soul Food at 3923 W. Charleston Blvd. and Joe Kofron pointed out the Sahara Saloon at 3345 E. Sahara Ave.

In addition, “Buffalo” Bob Rusnock recommended the liver and onions at Snaps at the Eastside Cannery at 5255 Boulder Highway and the Coronado Cafe at the South Point at 9777 Las Vegas Blvd. South, Judy Canter Meyerson suggested the Skyline Casino at 1741 N. Boulder Highway in Henderson and the Courtyard Cafe at The Orleans at 4500 W. Tropicana Ave., Carol Spaulding suggested the Rainbow Club & Casino at 122 S. Water St. in Henderson, and Jackie Bauer, bar manager at Ichabod’s Lounge at 3300 E. Flamingo Road, said it is served there as a daily special.

Whew. …

Chapman said it’s also known as guyabano and is available frozen in Asian markets and fresh, when it’s in season, at 99 Ranch Market at China Town Plaza, 4255 Spring Mountain Road. And Dean B. Pomerantz said that, also known as guanabana, it’s available frozen in Hispanic markets or canned in syrup at the International Marketplace, 5000 S. Decatur Blvd. Pomerantz also noted that cherimoya is a close cousin. …
