I hate to say it -- LoS a tad bit underwhelming...

I know I will catch a lot of flack for this, but I came away fairly underwhelmed. Both my man and I were really excited about this dinner, given the multitude of laurel this place has received.

Granted, being only two, we did not have a chance to sample a whole lot of dishes (I wish we had been a group of six or so), but we ordered three dishes that stood out on the boards here, namely:

the crispy rice/sour sausage appetizer which was OK, but not mindblowing. We had the catfish pieces salad, which was OK, but not mindblowing. Last but not least, we had the fried prawns with their shells on. They were nice, yes, but once again -- really not something I would travel 2,500 miles for.

Maybe we should've had one of their curries. The Panang duck was a candidate, but again -- we were limited to a few number of dishes. Maybe we should've had one of their seabass dishes. Who knows.

We still don't have dinner plans for Tuesday (our last night in Vegas), as we were hoping to win lots and lots of money to blow on L'Atelier hahaha. Just kidding. So we could go back. I'm just not sure whether it's worth it.

The place was hopping on a Sunday night, the service friendly, attentive, and everything was fresh and tasty. Maybe my expectations were too high.

Anywhos. Tonight, we got a rez at Raku. Hopefully, we'll be far more impressed.
