las vegas: food scene.

The Las Vegas food scene is clearly a tasty one. Here’s what we inhaled.

Day 1.

We arrived late in the evening, but lucky for us many Las Vegas food establishments on the strip are open until the wee hours of the morning. Our hotel also had some options to cater to our “we too lazy to go outside right now” feels. We had an almost midnight snack at Gordon Ramsey Burgers.

My burger had roasted jalapeños, avocado, and grilled tomato. Tip: Get you burger medium. (I ordered medium well and it was a tad dry.) Sweet potato fries are served with a dusting of powdered sugar – a first for me and quite delightful!

Day 2.

Rise and shine with a smoothie from The Juice Standard. The berry smoothies were not too sweet – a perfectly refreshing way to energize the morning.

You know what else energizes the morning? Bacon. We tried the bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich at Egg Slut – salt and runny egg perfection. And because FOMO, we grabbed cookies for later from Sprinkles.

For lunch we found a hand-pulled noodle place: Shang Artisan Noodles. And I am so happy we went off the strip to experience the magic. Shang prepares all their noodles made-to-order. I must go back and try all the things we didn’t try on this visit.

Then, it was boba next door at Sweet Boba. I got a mint coffee (very similar to Peet’s mint mojito), with my favorite kind of ice.

Late night after concert meal: Secret Pizza AND Milkbar. Cereal milk soft serve with crack pie. Hello! I got more cookies here for later, too.

Day 3.

We enjoyed breakfast at Mon Ami Gabi. I ordered the bananas foster waffles – they don’t say it on the menu, but the waffles are mini and the most adorable thing ever. We also had the corned beef hash and a cinnamon apple skinny crepe pancake. 

And our last Vegas meal before jetting back home: Lardo. Pork, kimchee, fried rosemary and sage, pickled peppers! Yes!

There are definitely some favorites to be consumed again one day. I’d return just for mini waffles and noodles. Mmm. What are some of your favorite Las Vegas food spots? Share below!

Local markets are my kind of tourist attraction. Crafternoons are my favorite. Good food makes me dance.
