Made a last minute decision to try Los Molcajetes last night. Went solo since my fiance was out shopping late with her mother and they had already eaten. The area around the restaurant is so-so but the inside atmosphere was very pleasant- not fancy but not underwhelming either. I ordered the Beef Molcajete...and I have to say it was awesome. It was beef strips (with sort of a smoky flavor), cactus, avocado, scallions, tomato, lime, and chili peppers in a red sauce that I loved even though I couldn't explain what was in it. The dish was big enough for 2 normal sized eaters combined with the tasty tortilla chips and very spicy salsa and the eight or so corn tortillas they threw in with the meal. Again, awesome meal, one of the best I've had in my trips to LV especially given the price (13.99). The service was good also, a nice plus.

The restaurant has more of a seafood focus but the menu is pretty extensive and there are a lot more things to try. I will definitely return either later this week or on my next trip out (I am from NYC).
