Las Vegas is know n for many things, gambling and bright lights among them – however, there’s another side to Las Vegas that makes it one of the most exciting cities to visit in the United States – and that’s the opportunity to enjoy some great meals.
For everything from seafood to burgers and beyond Las Vegas has enough choice to satisfy even the most demanding of palettes.
Here are some of the best that Vegas has to offer.
#1 Beauty & Essex.
This is a restaurant that has a fusion of great new ideas and fantastic classic with a 21st century twist. Famed chef Chris Santos brings has A Game to diners with options such as Thai style shrimp with a tomato tartar, roasted bone marrow and classics such as pasta dishes and burgers. For an evening get together with friends and family this is a perfect choice.
#2 Bonchon Chicken.
If the well traveled folks at CNN rate the chicken wings at Bonchon ‘the best in the country’ you know you’re in for a treat. The Daikon Radish side dish seems a stretch – but somehow it works perfectly – and at a price point of around $30 for thirty wings (or strips) it’s a great pit stop for hungry parties.
#3 Dog Hause.
America’s second favorite dish (the top prize has to go to the burger), the hot dog gets a California style gourmet makeover. These are hot dogs done right. Just across the road from the Hard Rock Hotel this centrally located oasis of taste also offers burger options so there’s something for everyone.
After a hard night on the strip a great breakfast is required to set visitors up for another day on the strip. Eggslut chef has transported the successful LA breakfast experience to Las Vegas. If you want a breakfast sandwich that supplies a taste explosion then you need to pay his fine establishment a visit. For a great interpretation of a classic make sure to experience the hardwood smoked bacon, cheese and egg with chipotle ketchup – it’s an experience to be savored.
#5 The Hummus Factory.
For fun filled snacks with a Mediterranean twist a visit to The Hummus Factory is an absolute must. The shwarma sliders are a magnificent reimagining of a classic. A lamb giro is also a fantastic choice.
#6 Pier 215.
Seafood lovers will rekindle their romance with ocean fresh produce at Pier 215. With sushi and sashimi offerings that tantalize the taste buds and a huge selection of house specials that include a generous and delicious lobster roll and a rib eye steak to die for this is a culinary destination that offers it all. Honorable mention should also go to the braised Black Cod and the tempura plates.
#7 SC Prime Steakhouse & Bar.
This steakhouse is awesome and is located in Summerlin inside the Suncoast Hotel and Casino. This is a great place to grab a steak and some good wine!
