Sampling Ethnic Las Vegas TR

westie | Nov 19, 201402:11 AM     41

We spent 14 nights in Las Vegas this past October managing to hit a number of low profile, mom and pop restaurants as well as a few in locals casinos. My write-up on each restaurant was, in most cases, necessarily abbreviated for trip report purposes, but may serve to encourage others to consider one of more these establishments.

October 8 - first night in town

Tides Seafood & Sushi Bar - Green Valley Ranch Resort

I redeemed a MyVegas reward for a free appetizer so on entering I asked our waitress if it could be used for a pound of Cajun style peel and eat shrimp. She asked one of the chefs who said no so I asked to see a manager who approved my request. The shrimp were in a spicy sauce that was so good I was tempted to lick the bowl. Showing a modicum of restraint, I used a spoon and finished nearly every drop.

We also ordered a seafood Cobb salad that I told our server would be shared. When we received 2 enormous plates of salad, I told our waitress a mistake must have been made as we ordered only one, but she said the chef split it for us. OMG. The salad included tiny salad shrimp, iceberg lettuce, pasteurized crab, egg, avocado, blue cheese and a white vinaigrette dressing that was almost tasteless. It was much better after I requested a side of blue cheese dressing. Wednesdays are 1/2 point days for seniors so our entire meal cost us only 7,500 point plus gratuity.
