Hi Hounds,

Thanks for all your advice over the years. Just returned from Vegas, stayed 4 nights at the South Point. Tried a couple of new places I read about here (as well as some old favorites) and wanted to report back. When we go to Vegas, the food is one of the biggest things for us, and we plan where we want to go beforehand.

We had lunch at Bachi Burger. Really wanted to like this place, but it was just meh. The service was horrendous, we waited a very long time before our server took our order and after that, over half an hour for our food/drinks and the place was not busy. The burgers, while they sound yummy on the menu, didn't live up to their descriptions, they were bland and needed more seasoning, more oomph, something! The one things I will say was that the parmesan truffle fries were delicious! However, we won't be going back. On our last trip to Vegas, we tried Create Burger on Tenaya/Lake Mead, which was infinitely better and we will definitely be going back there.

We also tried Waffles Cafe, which has a breakfast special, egg, bacon or sausage, waffle and unlimited coffee for $5.99. It was terrific! I thought this place would be a restaurant, but it was a small place where you order at the counter, then sit down and they bring your food to you. Very friendly people there and the food was delicious! They have dessert waffles, you choose the toppings, also waffle sandwiches, waffle pizza, all sorts of things. Everything is made fresh and by hand. I would definitely go back there.

We went to Rosemary's twice and Lotus of Siam twice, once for lunch and once for dinner at each place. Terrific, as always. The Thai beef salad it LOS is the best I have ever had, without a doubt. For dinner, we tried a couple of new dishes, the beef with green peppercorn sauce and drunken noodles with seafood, both were delicious. At Rosemary's, the shrimp and white cheddar grits were wonderful, as was the white peach cheesecake with citrus coulis. The service at both places was fantastic and they continue to be favorites of ours, we go to both every time we are in Vegas.

Had lunch at Sababa, very good falafel, kebabs, shawarma, and hummous. The owner was very nice to us. I would go back there.

We also had dinner at Sage at the Aria and Botero at the Encore. Both were nice, but with so many choices in Vegas, not sure I would go back to either one again. Another trip, over so quickly!

    So glad you had a good experience with Waffles Cafe. Aren't the young women who work there a big part of what makes eating there such a pleasure?

    I've never even heard of Sababa, so thanks for the tip.

      We found both the staff and food to be both wonderful at Waffles Cafe.
