Eating Out in Las Vegas

Food Heaven

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Las Vegas holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

A foodie’s delight, Las Vegas will spoil you for choice when it comes to eating out. With opulent Strip hotels and restaurants offering Michelin-star dining and some of the best hospitality in the world, Las Vegas offers a number of international dishes that will whet your appetite.

With so many outstanding and down-right delicious dining options, here are our foodie recommendations for your Las Vegas holiday:

Arepas at Viva Las Arepas

A thick griddled corn cake originally from Colombia and Venezuela, at Viva Las Arepas you will see why this tasty number is rising through the ranks of most popular, cheap-eat foods in Vegas. The Reina Pepiada would be our pick with a filling of chicken salad and avocado.  Wash your arepas down with agua de panela, a Venezuelan cane sugar and lime juice concoction.

Gazpacho at Julian Serrano (inside Aria Resort and Casino)

Undoubtedly one of the best gazpachos in the USA, Julian Serrano’s Spanish-inspired recipe is far from the liquid-y salsa mess you may find on the Strip. This tomato-based soup made with the freshest of raw vegetables will only leave you wanting more.

Turkey club sandwich at MOzen Bistro (inside Mandarin Oriental Hotel)

This may be a strong statement but you would be hard-pushed to find a Turkey Club Sandwich as good as the offering at MOzen Bistro in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Staying true to the original recipe, you will find turkey, bacon, lettuce, two kinds of cheese and tomato all toasted on the finest of sourdough, with a smattering of pesto or avocado. 

Tonkotsu Ramen at Monta Japanese Noodle House

Forget household names like Wagamama; when it comes to Tonkotsu Ramen there is only one place to go - Monta Japanese Noodle House. With a broth so rich and luscious and chewy noodles to match, you will be in Far Eastern foodie heaven. Don’t pass up the Nitamago (seasoned hard-boiled egg) either, you will only regret it.

Fresh fruit at Peppermill

A timeless Strip hotspot, the Peppermill is one of Vegas’ favourite coffee shops. An iconic, old-school neon time capsule of glitz, you must try the (mountain of) Fresh Fruit and you will soon see why when heads turn as it is brought to your U-shaped dining area. We recommend sharing between three or four as a breakfast with a cup of undoubtedly, the most flavoursome coffee in Las Vegas.

Pancakes at Du-par’s (inside Golden Gate Hotel and Casino)

Although a chain restaurant, Du-par’s golden discs of joy possibly the best in Las Vegas. Each pancake is fluffy, tall and the diameter of a regular dinner plate! Doused in melted butter, every mouthful is unforgettable.

Everything in sight at Wicked Spoon Buffet (inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas)

You may be asking yourself why there is a buffet in our recommendations but the one at Wicked Spoon is simply superb. You will want to be stuffing your face alongside the local clientele in this upmarket eatery. Individual dishes are served to you for presentation’s sake, so unlike your usual buffet, including the fried chicken in their own hand-made baskets. Just save room for some of their immaculate desserts.

 

While restaurant dining is by far the most popular in Las Vegas, there is certainly a rise in street food, especially on Fremont Street. Be careful to only order street food from vendors whose food is clean and fresh, as well as cooked right in front of you.

These are our top recommendations for street food dining on Fremont Street:

  • Piccadilly Pizza serves large, slow-cooked slices of Margherita pizza great for when you are on the go during the day
  • The Gelato and Illy Espresso stand in front of the Four Queens is great for a conventional sweet treat and a caffeine boost
  • Vegas Vic serves your classic and rather juicy hot dogs, each one as cheap as chips
  • Mermaids serve sinful chocolate-covered frozen bananas and deep-fried Twinkies – hot fat and cream never tasted so good
  • Las Vegas Jerkys serve the ultimate clam jerky dish, perfect for when you stumble out of a casino in the early hours

Prices in Las Vegas vary widely. A takeaway meal may cost six to 10 US Dollars, while in quieter areas you will probably only pay three to five US Dollars. A sandwich costs about five to seven US Dollars, but can go up or down depending on where you get it. A one-litre bottle of water costs about 75 cents in the quieter areas, while it may cost one to two US Dollars in the main tourist blocks. A bottle of wine from a supermarket can cost as little as three US Dollars or go up to 15 US Dollars for a low-end bottle in a restaurant.
