        There's a nice selection of Asian grocery shopping in Chinatown on Spring Mountain at Arville. The major grocery store there, Ranch 99 is an Asian supermarket with an interesting take out cafe with some fairly exotic fare. A bakery adjacent to the market in the attached mini mall has a Chinese bakery with terrific char siu steamed buns and other Chinese pastries. If Mexican is more to your taste, Mariana's on W. Sahara is another full service supermarket and also has a nice Mexican bakery and an interesting authentic take out cafe. For a few others (British, Filipino, etc.) here's a link for you http://lasvegasfoodadventures.wordpre...

        If your tastes are a little more conventional, there are several Whole Foods and Trader Joes in the Las Vegas Valley that may be close to where you'll be staying, Google them for the locations.
