Finger Lickin’ Good: Las Vegas

Everything in Las Vegas screams money. It’s either you’re losing some or winning some. Some restaurants were worth the spending. From random finds to quick meals from CVS, here is what was on our menu.

 

Pantry

3400 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109| mirage.com/en/restaurants/pantry.html?icid=GMB_Restaurants_Pantry

The Mirage’s kitchenlike 24/7 space known for gourmet breakfast specialties plus lunch & dinner. Great spot for an early breakfast or late meal. 

What’s on the Menu:

Milk Chocolate Pancakes (under “Little Grittles” section) and Applewood Smoked Bacon (sides) – $18

Chicken Fried Steak & Eggs – $17

Sawmill country gravy, two eggs any style

Dig In?

YES! The “little” pancakes came out bigger than I thought and were filling. This was the first time in a long time I received my bacon perfectly crisped without asking. The Chicken Fried Steak & Eggs was a big meal but a bit bland. Great food and friendly staff!

Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken 

1770 Festival Plaza Dr #200, Las Vegas, NV 89135| www.blueribbonfriedchicken.com

Counter-serve fried chicken by the piece & in sandwiches in bright, modern digs. I’ve been dying to try it ever since I saw it on Instagram. It is located roughly 20 minutes from the strip at the Downtown Summerlin shopping center.

What’s on the Menu:

The Pit Combo – $11.37 (.50 cents for onions and jalapeño)

Aged cheddar, smoked bacon & BBQ Sauce served with fries and pickled cucumbers

Dig In?

YES! Tasha and I shared the pit combo and it was surprisingly still filling. Great mix of flavors but the chicken could have been a little more crispy. Add some flavor to your meal with the homemade sauces located at the sauce bar and your table. Habanero Hot Sauce was my favorite but a little watered down. They need this in more locations!

Cream

1980 Festival Plaza Dr, Las Vegas, NV 89135|www.creamnation.com

Counter-service chain for ice cream sandwiches made with a choice of flavored cookies & toppings. Who doesn’t love fresh warm cookies with ice cream? Cream is also located roughly 20 minutes from the strip at the Downtown Summerlin shopping center.

What’s on the Menu:

Ice Cream Sandwhich – $4.49

Choose any two cookies and one flavor of ice cream 

Dig In?

YES! I ordered a snickerdoodle and toffee cookie with mint chocolate chip ice cream. The mix of cookies were a good combination of flavors and not overly sweet as you would think. Eat it quickly, the warm cookies melt the ice cream fast.

Thai St. Café

3137 S Industrial Rd., Las Vegas, NV 89109 | www.thaistcafe.com

Modern-rustic Thai choice serving spicy curries, noodles & other traditional dishes. Located roughly 15 minute walk from Treasure Island in an “unusual” area (there is a sex museum and strip club near by).

What’s on the Menu:

Crispy Rolls (5) – $5.95

Pad Thai – $8.95 (+$2 with shrimp)

Wonton Soup – $8.95


Dig In?

Absolutely! I wish we looked up Thai food sooner. Great price and delicious meals. The crispy rolls were hot and fresh. The Pad Thai was perfectly spiced to my liking and the Wonton Soup was okay, however, Tasha has had better. Definitely worth the walk or an Uber, but I would not recommend walking alone.

Taco del Gordo

3049 S Las Vegas Blvd, NV 89109| www.tacosdelgordobc.com

With an authentic Tijuana style, Taco del Gordo delievers delicious Mexican tacos. Don’t get confused, this shop only sells tacos – no rice, beans, burritos, etc. They do however have a few Mexican sweets by the cashier.

What’s on the Menu:

Steak Tacos (2) – $4.87

Dig In?

Yes, but its not worth waiting more than 15 minutes. We originally went at 7pm on Sunday (Memorial Day weekend) and the line was all the way back by the sign. We came back around the same time on Memorial Day and waited less than 10 minutes. Great flavor and price. 


TIPS

  • The strip is expensive, google places to eat before your trip or save money by stopping by inexpensive restaurants/shops.
  • Don’t be afraid to walk/Uber to places that aren’t close to save at least $10-$20 (Pho inside our hotel was $20 while we walked just 15 minutes and got Wonton Soup for $8.95)

There were other places we stopped by to grab some quick food since majority of our time was spent at the pool parties. Making simple meals saves time and is inexpensive. We stopped by the food court on the third floor of the fashion mall across the street and the CVS located just inside Treasure Island.

Food court – Rice Bowl $7 (orange chicken, rice, steamed vegetables)

CVS – Club Wrap $5 (turkey, tomato, jalapeño, lettuce)
