Today's message is inspired by this economic woe. I hate to talk about it because I think talking about it makes it worse, but I know that local restaurants are suffering a bit and everyone likes a good deal, economic woe or not, so I wanted to start a post praising local restaurants that we should help get through this tough spot and restaurants that are running deals we should all know about. I have 3 right now:
1. Hedary's Mediterranean (7365 W. Sahara): As a recent transplant, my husband and I have been on the search for good falafel, solid Mediterranean. Yes, I know, everyone says go to Paymon's, but the joints are so big, and the menu so big, you get a little uneasy (Should I really be eating spaghetti at the same place I eat falafel?), and then I think it is a little pricey. Anyways, Hedary's has the best falafel by far that I have had in Vegas. They include fava beans in the mix, and they bring out pitas all puffed up from the stone. The Greek Salad is HUGE with enough oil and tasty vinegar and feta for 3 salads. If you are a vegetarian, you will find plenty to love. Plus, it is all very affordable. My husband and I split the falafel appetizer and a greek salad, and we are stuffed. When we were there the other night a couple came in from the Strip, they used to live in Fort Worth and said the Hedary's there was there favorite restaurant; they were thrilled to be at the one here in Vegas.
2. Tofu Hut (3920 Spring Mountain Rd): After 11pm, they have all you can eat Korean BBQ starting at $11.99. Heck, even our favorite spare ribs are $16.99, and did I mention all you can eat!
3. Memphis BBQ : We go to the location at 1401 S. Rainbow Blvd, and while the BBQ might not be blow your mind good, it is solid, and my husband likes the St. Louis ribs. BUT, the real story here is that on Sunday they have all you can eat fried chicken (moist and delicious, not overly crusty) with FIVE all you can eat sides for $11.99! As for sides, the baked beans have SEVEN different beans with a bit of sweetness; the baked sweet potatoes are delicious, and the fried okra is the BEST I have ever had not counting at a close relatives' house (I am from Georgia). I think I ate 3 cups full.
That is all I have for now. We are off to try Food Express at the new Palace Station location. After 2 bad experiences at Ping Pang Pong, we are looking for a new, late night Chinese, casino experience. Not sure why the need, as there are options on Spring Mountain, but it gives us an excuse to try something new.
