CULINARY EXPLORATION IN NEVADA

 LAS VEGAS

LAS VEGAS =  SIN CITY

If you're tired of the expensive and unimaginative strip food, then take a look below at some very creative and delicious spots, located slightly off Tropicana blvd.

PAYMENT: Credit/Cash

 

MAP IT: 

620 E Flamingo Rd.

Las Vegas, NV 89119

WHAT TO ORDER: 

  • Crispy Duck in Panang Curry

595 E Sahara Ave.
