There is so much to see and do when exploring Vegas that it is easy to get lost in the excitement, lose track of time, and forget about food. But once the hunger strikes and you find there is no time to sit for a meal, there are several take-away restaurants around the Strip that are quick, tasty, and filling. So don’t settle for sad-looking chicken nuggets and limp french fries – step up your meals!
Breakfast is available in Las Vegas, but it’s not a priority. And if you partying on the strip late, chances are you’re going to sleep and miss the window for that morning meal. But if you’re an early riser, go for it brioche from Guy Savoy in Paris or Caesars Palace, a tiny place that serves coffee, tea, and Savoy’s signature pastries, some of which are filled with almonds and candied fruit, Nutella and banana, and more. If you’re looking for something hearty, order a ham and cheese croissant or a cheddar and broccoli quiche.
Once lunchtime is over, there are plenty of takeout options and you can find a quick lunch spot almost anywhere on the Strip. Chef David Chang Moon palace Tastys (tiny hamburger sliders in the style of a white lock made of brisket and short ribs sandwiched between Hawaiian rolls), hot chips (crispy potato chips) and half dips (two pancakes filled with marshmallow and half-dipped in chocolate) are served in the palazzo . . It’s simple and tasty. But if you want a more traditional burger, stop by Shake shack in New York-New York, the East Coast rival of In-N-Out Burger. While the menu features delicious items like the chicken nuggets and the shroom burger, the classic ShackBurger is never a disappointment. Don’t forget crinkle-cut fries and some shack sauce!
At the Bromberg Brothers, you can enjoy a traditional two-piece chicken combo Fried chicken with blue ribbon in Grand Bazaar Shops, but this chicken joint also offers tender dogs, a chicken sandwich disguised like a hot dog. Go with the Buffalo Tender Dog, a chicken that’s doused with buffalo sauce and ranch, topped with cucumber and served on a side-split potato bun. Speaking of hot dogs, the lobster is rolling in Lobster ME Miracle Mile Shops are basically lobster hot dogs. This is the best way to enjoy fresh lobster on the strip without breaking the bank. The main attraction is the Maine Roll, a quarter pound of chilled Maine lobster topped with mayo and chives and served with a side of Cajun fries or a salad.
Suitable for the theme of seafood, Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips The Linq Promenade serves some of the best fish and chips in town. The excellent preparation lies in the preparation: Fresh cod fillets from Alaska are beaten and fried for one minute, which is crispy on the outside and tender and flaky on the inside. They are then served on a bed of crispy fries. Round off the experience with a Ramsay specialty, the sticky toffee pudding shake.
If you want something more upscale, Eataly In Park MGM, fine Italian pizzas, pasta, meat and cheese plates and more are offered in La Pasta Fresca and in the Pizzeria alla Romana. On the Italian street food marketplace, small bites make for great dishes like the Prime Rib Panini, lightly sprinkled with sea salt, black pepper and extra virgin olive oil or crispy fried polenta.
Let’s face it – there may be times during your vacation when you feel a little tipsy and crave for something greasy, salty, and unexcused. One of the best finds is late night PizzaCake by Buddy Valastro at Harrah. The Cake Boss star’s fast-casual pizzeria bakes New York-style pizza for $ 6 to $ 9 a piece. Here you’ll find classics like cheese, pepperoni, and a meat-lover pizza called The Boss, which is topped with sausage, pepperoni, meatballs, and bacon. Some not-so-classic, but still fascinating, slices are the Chicken and Bacon Alfredo Pizza and the Philly Cheesesteak Pizza. And don’t settle down at the restaurant’s cake ATM, where you can buy slices of chocolate rainbow, red velvet, and vanilla cake.
Moon Palace just wasn’t enough for the fast-casual front for David Chang, and he recently opened another grab-and-go joint at The Cosmopolitan Bang bar (Bang means “bread” in Korean). The trademark is the U Wrap, a flatbread that is filled and rolled with spicy pork, teriyaki chicken or spicy eggplant of your choice. Pair with a side of pickled shishito peppers or creamy bean salad.
But if you want a sloppy, delicious meal, go for it Project BBQ at Circa Resort & Casino, the only permanent food truck on the Fremont Street Experience. One of their delicious trademarks is the garbage can – brisket, pulled pork and grilled chicken, stacked on crispy potato chips, topped with barbecue sauce, beer and cheese sauce, crispy bacon and coleslaw.
