Eat Your Heart Out: Vegas Style

Fred and I are known to eat our way through a city (or cities). We love food, but we love good food even more. Well, Las Vegas was no different.  Here are some of our favorite places:

Margaritaville:  You can never go wrong with their nachos.  They weigh about as much as I do, but they are so yummy!  This is a great place to eat outside and people watch. 
Wazuzu inside Encore:  Asian food.  We dined on the sweet and sour chicken and the shrimp drunken noodles.  Absolutely amazing!  Reservations are not accepted, but the food is worth the wait. 
Hash House A Go Go inside Imperial Palace:  Fred and I ate here twice.  The portions are enough for 2 or 3 to share, but everything was delicious.  We only had breakfast, but they do have lunch and dinner.  The hotel/casino were a little sketchy, but the food is so worth it. They also have several locations around Las Vegas. 
 Serendipity 3 in front of Caesar's Palace:  This is just like the place in NYC.  The Frozen Hot Chocolate is a MUST for all!  We may have stopped by once a day. 
Sugar Factory in between Paris and Planet Hollywood:  The best place in Vegas for a drink.  The Blow Pop Martini was out of this world delicious!  I could become addicted!
The chicken and waffles were to die for!
And you can never go wrong with a gummi bear fish bowl! 
At $25 a pop, literally, I did not try it, but had to have a pic because it was the Britney Spears lollipop.
Other Sugar Factory MUSTS:  The Barbie Milkshake and Frozen Hot Chocolate.  Yum!
N9NE Steakhouse inside The Palms:  A delicious meal.  We split a caesar salad, steak, mac and cheese and creamed spinach.  The chef even sent out delicious red velvet cupcakes for our anniversary!  Great ambiance! 

Eastside Bar inside of the Encore:  Best place for a pineapple and sage martini!  They also had dueling pianos which is always fun!
Koi inside Planet Hollywood:  The sushi was delicious.  Edamame was phenomenal and it had a great ambiance. 
And we ended our trip with a JUMBO donut from Serendipity 3.  Best ever!
Are you hungry yet?

Another good tip for dining out is downloading the "Open Table" app.  It's easy to use and makes reservations simple.  Plus, you earn points and for each 1,000 you earn a $10 gift card to any "Open Table" restaurant.  Who doesn't love that?
