Yay! As promised, this is the second edition to my first blog post about vacationing in Vegas. In case you missed it, catch it here!
For this post, we’re going to talk about something that is near and dear to my heart: FOOD! Cue alllll the drooling emojis. Check out this little list of some delicious places to try next time you’re in Vegas! I’ve even included my little scale of these restaurants from not too expensive ($), to maaaaybe coming here was a bad idea on our wallet($$$).
Deep Dish Pizza. Those are literally the only few words I need to say. But in case you want more words: they have INCREDIBLE bruschetta, and if you decide to eat outside there are misters all over to keep you cool in the Las Vegas heat! I’m going to be real with you here- This might be just because it was my first time trying deep dish pizza, but it was the best tasting “pizza” (more like a casserole) I’ve ever had, and I don’t think another restaurant could top it! I gave this two dollar signs because if you’re ordering individually, then it can be pretty spendy. But trust me, if you’re ordering deep dish pizza, then you should absolutely be sharing it! I was SO full from just one slice.
Located in the Palace Station Hotel & Casino, this little eatery came as a little surprise to us! A few years ago, Clint and I had come to Vegas and ate at this little hole in the wall Chinese restaraunt inside the Palace Station. We had originally came back to this hotel in search of this place, but came to find out it wasn’t there anymore. What we did end up finding was this beautiful, slightly upscale Asian fusion restaurant that floored me. Everything was so beautiful! I had the Kimchee fried rice, and Clint had the Salted Fish fried rice. Both were extremely satisfying and a great comfort meal to have after getting off the plane.
You can’t go wrong with fast food sometimes. My family and I were out on Fremont Street checking out all the cheap gambling, gawking at the street performers, and rocking out to 80’s rock cover bands and having a good time! White Castle just happened to be there and in our peripheral view, so we decided to grab a late night bite to satisfy the cravings. It is so interesting what goes into the cooking process making these burgers! The wait wasn’t too bad, and I’m not going to lie, I would order White Castle again if there was one near me. Something about them….yummy!
I vote yes for fish tacos all the time! This cute little eatery reminiscent of a Hawaiian tiki hut has THE best pina coladas! We sat in the shade, ate our fish tacos, and watched the table next to us play with the giant sized Jenga set. Talk about a chill atmosphere! This was conveniently located right outside of our hotel Bally’s, in the Grand Bazaar.
If you want a taste of one of Gordon Ramsey’s restaurants, but don’t have the big bucks for it, make sure to check out Fish and Chips! Located in the Linq promenade, this place is uber delicious, and easy on the wallet! I ordered the classic Fish and Chips, and Clint had ordered the Lobster and Shrimp combo. I have never had better fish and chips in my life! The batter has a perfect light crunch, while the fish inside is moist and flaky. You absolutely NEED to try his spin on his sticky toffee pudding, except in milkshake form. It’s so extra, but it’s beautiful and OH SO DELICIOUS.
I wanted to try this place, just to say that I’ve tried it (and hopefully run into Marky Mark haha). No surprise, it was delicious! On our way back from the magic show we stopped by (because it’s right outside of our hotel in the Grand Bazaar shops) and decided to give it a try. Clint has the smoked bacon arugula salad, and I had the Thanksgiving burger (because I’m the person that thinks Thanksgiving food should be acceptable year round). Loved every bite, and so comforting to eat on our last day in Vegas.
Okay, if you’re a huge fanatic when it comes to Gordon Ramsey like I am (the dude is like fine wine, can you say swoon!); coming to Vegas and not trying one of his restaurants is not even an option. We decided to try something a little fancy, and dine out at Hell’s Kitchen. Attire is business casual, the lighting is dark and romantic, and the mood is dreamy. When you first walk in, you can see the red team vs. the blue team cooking in the kitchen, just like in the show. If you sit further away near the windows, you get a nice view of the fountains next to Caesar’s Palace, and the Strip.
Clint ordered the lobster risotto, and the crispy skin salmon. I had to go classic and order the 3 course meal which consisted of the pan fried scallops, the beef wellington, and the sticky toffee pudding. I am already a huge fan of scallops, and this dish took my tastebuds to a different level. The beef wellington exceeded my expectations. Cutting into it was like putting a knife through butter. And then don’t get me started on the sticky toffee pudding. Paired with speculoos ice cream, this dessert is one for the books. I would honestly come back and eat here again because the three course meal was probably the best meal I’ve ever had in my life.
Honorable Mentions: Hot N’ Juicy Crawfish. I wanted to try this place SO bad, but it was already pretty late, there was a long wait, and we had an early flight in the morning. Almost all of my family has tried this place, and even the the lady at the hotel check in was telling me how good this place was. This is at the top of my list for next time!
Have you tried any of these delicious places? If you have, sound off in the comments and let me know! If you haven’t tell me which place you would most want to try!
