Ah Las Vegas, a place where there’s some of the best, weirdest and damn right wacky food in the whole world. On our recent trip we got to cross a fair amount of places off our bucket list, find some new favourites and well see an awful lot of giant portions. Enough of my blabber- it’s time to get into this!
Great food, people watching, a wonderful happy hour and TV’s all over the place; what more could you ask for? Seen as Vegas heat had really hit we decided to give a bunch of their appetisers a go instead of a normal evening meal. Chinese style Brussel sprouts, frickles with an insane ranch dip, fries two ways (garlic parsley and sweet potato) with moroccan and caribbean sauces and a pork taco. During Happy Hour we got these for $5 each, everything was incredible, and the rest of the menu looked decent too (we eagle eyed every table around us). If you want to people watch a few hours away and enjoy a great deal then head here during their 3 hour happy hour Monday-Thurs. Website.
Having watched Triple D for years this was a must visit for our trip, the door however is really difficult to find and you might find yourself walking the loop of the outside of the restaurant just as we did (ah well exercise ‘n’ all). The place itself is covered in wooden beams, merchandise and Guy’s cookbooks, I mean what else would you expect? The food itself (note the size of the turkey burger compared to the Garlic Pretzel bun) was really good, and stupidly filling; but the chips did go cold really quickly- tasty as they are they don’t really have that same appeal when they’re cold. Only downside? The service- if you want to be in and out this isn’t an option- it took us a good 15 minutes to get our plates cleared and to get a bill, even though staff were constantly walking past. Burgers and Sandwiched averaged around $18 a pop.
However the nacho’s looked incredible and could easily feed three as a meal, portion control eh? Website
Branded as twisted farmfood this place is very generous on portions. So much so that over 50% of the dishes on the menu can feed two people (and you’d probably still have leftovers). Eventhough we knew this we wanted to give two dishes a go. The food is incredible; light waffles, creamy pasta and the juiciest crunchiest chicken, not to mention the strawberry lemonade. Prices? $20 a main, for the amount of food you get it’s a bargain. We didn’t do too well, as you’ll now see…
It’s safe to say we rolled ourselves out into the casino that night. Then didn’t eat until breakfast the following morning. #livingthelife eh? Website
Keep your eyes peeled for my snack/ quick meals round-up of Las Vegas that’s on the way as soon as I stop dribbling (and eating biscuits!)
