Happy Holidays!

Happy holidays from me to you!

It is finally cooling down in Las Vegas and it feels like winter has arrived with bells on.

I just got my lovely aesthetically pleasing tree decorated and I’m baking vegan delights.

Much more to come soon! Hope your holidays are also bright.

A hidden gem in Las Vegas – Eatt Gourmet Bistro

Sooo the title pretty much says it all. Eatt is an unassuming little location on Sahara Ave in Las Vegas, and I hadn’t heard a thing about it until my boyfriend brought me there for a surprise dinner (I usually select where we eat but hey, sometimes it’s nice to be surprised!).

We had to wait a little bit for a party who had grown roots into their booth, but when we finally sat and asked for the vegan tasting course we had seen on their menu, we were not prepared for such flavors.

My boyfriend remarked that Eatt had a Michelin star, so I assumed it would be good. IT WAS PHENOMENAL.

The head chef was away that night, but sous chef Aymeric Delouis hit this one out of the park.

Behold, our Michelin star vegan feast. Go eat everything there at your earliest convenience; I couldn’t get enough of the flavors.

 

Chica impresses!! 

Butter lettuce salad

So the Venetian and the Palazzo hotels in Las Vegas aren’t really known for their vegan options or attention to dietary restrictions (though they can be found!), but I was pleasantly surprised by the service and the vegan options at Chica, a Latin-fusion restaurant that recently replaced DB Brasserie in the Venetian.

Platanos, guacamole, tortilla chips, and arepas!

The servers were incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and knew exactly what to omit or substitute. What they didn’t know for sure (due to changing menu items), they double checked.

Go check out this beautiful restaurant! The food, music, and decor are all a total hit.

Five stars from this Plantbased Jetsetter!

Delicious vegan fare at Andrea’s!

Mmm the siren call of Andrea’s in the Encore, named for the lovely Mrs. Wynn. This asian-fusion restaurant was the first in the Wynn/Encore property to debut the Impossible Burger, and they did it three ways!

Of course we ate all three ways during our visit: behold.

 

You can see the mapo tofu being fixed in the first video, and the lettuce cups with Impossible Burger crumbles, along with the delicious sliders with kimchee and miso dressing.

It is definitely worth a visit to this restaurant to try the vegan menu – the chef does a phenomenal job.

Not to be outdone, the Gardein chicken lettuce cups and the vegan sushi are amazing choices as well!

 

Five stars and two thumbs up, Andrea’s!

Jardin at Encore – Las Vegas

I promised I’d be posting more, didn’t I?

Observe this vegan feast I had the privilege of eating at Jardin in the Encore hotel in Las Vegas.

I’m seeing more and more Impossible Burger options at the Wynn and Encore; this special product is only available in certain restaurants around the country. I can’t wait until they have a retail release!!

(When Wynn is ready to hire a vegan taste taster and blogger, my body is ready. I volunteer as tribute. Cough cough. )
