Out-of-towner's quick view of Reno near the convention center

  • 0

I was in Reno last week for the World Science Fiction Convention and just wanted to share my thoughts re some of the places we went to.

Since we were in Reno for the convention, we didn't really seek out any food destinations and stayed close to the Reno-Sparks Convention Center.

My husband and I had two meals in the Peppermill, where we were staying. My breakfast at the Cafe Milano was disappointing as my Eggs Benedict featured something more like soft-boiled eggs than poached. Our late dinner at Biscotti's was better as my husband enjoyed his prime rib dip. My beef stroganoff was decent.

For our anniversary dinner, we went to La Vecchia. Decent Italian food, although I thought my Ravioli Fiorentina was a little one-dimensional.

We had pizza at Magic Carpet Golf (Giorgio's?) before our two rounds of mini-golf. Not bad for a mini-golf place.

Went to El Tumi and was the only table by 8:30 pm. My grilled shrimp and yucca were fine, but I should have ordered more adventurously. I've had some good Peruvian food in the Bay Area, and was hoping to find more of the same.

Our best meal of the week was right across the street at Naan & Kabab. I'm not sure exactly what cuisine the restaurant is highlighting, but my kabab koobedeh was delicious. Not spicy but well-seasoned. My husband enjoyed his chicken kabab but was sad that he wasn't eating my dish.
