Vegas today!

Hi all,

My husband and I are leaving for Vegas today and will be there through Friday. We tend to eat breakfast and lunch wherever, but our must have restaurants so far are:

Stripsteak (thank you for the $50 gift certificate) - I know this isn't the best steak place, but it's a good deal that we can't pass up.
Bartalotta - Our one splurge.
SeaBlue - I'm an oyster fanatic, going for the happy hour deal.

Chinatown - Here's where we need your help. I found a great thread on Chinatown, but it's pretty old. It also focuses on dim sum, which we don't plan on having. My husband is not an adventurous eater, but I am. Any suggestions?

      Only breakfast/lunch (heaven), but you know there is now a location at Imperial Palace?

    2. An idea for your Chinatown adventure might be to take a look at China MaMa (3420 South Jones) and HK Star (3400 South Jones), about a 60 second stroll from each other in the same strip mall. Both have large menus that create plenty of options for an adventurous eater, but also have some basic dishes that anyone can enjoy. You can take a quick look at the menu for each to see if there is something that suits your husband, or maybe even a mix and match - appetizers at one and entree's at the other. Note that HK Star has more of a seafood focus, while China MaMa handles some unusual ingredients quite well.

      1. I really loved Noodles in the Bellagio. I personally dig the Dim Sum, but there regular fair is also very good.

        1. OR Chinablock as some of us like to call it. :)

          It's really quite small with lots of restaurants. They even have a website.
          You could check out a few menus before you go or simply walk around until you spot a place with dishes that suit your appetite. What kind of cuisine do you prefer? Or prefer to try?

          Have you considered Lotus of Siam. Often called the best Thai restaurant in the country.
