I guess I’m a foodie. Sure, I like food. But I don’t think that makes me a foodie.
A foodie is one that likes a great variety of food and seeks out new and interesting food experiences. That’s me! I like trying new things. If you’re like me you might be interested in my list of Top Ten List of Best Places to eat in Las Vegas!
10. Roberto’s Taco Shop (Don Tortaco)
If you’re looking for authentic Mexican food at a reasonable price you have got to try this fast casual option. The burritos are huge and the guacamole is top shelf.
9. Pin Kaow
This is my favorite Asian cuisine restaurant in town. Of the 3 locations in Las Vegas, Heather and I like the one at 7835 S. Rainbow. Their Chicken Pad Thai is amazing and the staff is very attentive.
8. Mac Shack
This neat little place on Warm Springs (just west of Durango) just came on our radar. What Subway is for sandwiches and Chipotle is for Mexican food, Mac Shack is for Italian food. You pick the type of pasta, add the sauce, include some ingredients and then finally pick some bread.
Don’t laugh at me! I’m telling you! There is nothing more gratifying to the junk food beast that lies within than a quick stop by the “box” to pick up some $.99 tacos. Correction – that’s actually 2 for $.99. Yeah… that’s right.
6. Spaghetti Western
Heather and I just found this place in the Southern Highlands shopping center on Decatur and Cactus. This 30 seat authentic Italian restaurant reminds us of the cafe’s in Rome. Every time we have been there the owner comes out to greet and welcome us. He just moved here from northern Italy and less than 2 months ago opened his American, storefront dream.
If you like Japanese food you like like Ohjah. If you like sushi you will love Ohjah. This is the place for you if you are looking to eat something strait from the sea.
On most special occasions, like our anniversary or Valentines Day, Heather will always pick the same location. Located in the Fashion Show Mall, Maggianos is a dining destination. Though a little pricy the high level of service, quality of food, and incredible ambience make every penny worth it.
3. The Outback
I know it’s a chain – I don’t care. I still think they are the best place to get a good steak and wedge salad.
2. Joe’s New York Pizza
Okay! Seriously! You have got to try out this pizzeria on L.V.B. in front of the Las Vegas Outlets. If you like great New York pizza from true New Yorkers this is your place. Beware – don’t eat your pizza with a knife and fork.
1. Food Truck Sunday at Southern Hills
On Sunday, February 9 we are hosting a very cool event at Southern Hills Baptist Church. Gourmet Food Trucks from around the city will be exclusively at Southern Hills Baptist Church for the entire morning and afternoon. This is a foodies dream come true. Everyone who attends 1 of the 3 services (8:00a, 9:45a, 11:30a) will receive a $4 voucher to spend at any one of the food trucks. For a family of 5 that means $20 off of Sunday’s lunch. You can get your vouchers that morning at Southern Hills. If you are a member of the church – bring your friends! If you are not a member of the church you are still invited to come and participate in this very exciting event. Just arrive a few minutes before 1 of the 3 services, enjoy the worship, feed your soul, grab a voucher, then feed your tummy. For more info check out: www.shbaptist.com/food-truck-sunday
P.S. I did not mention In-N-Out because those heavenly hamburgers do not belong on any lowly list. They transcend. Animal Style all the way!
