Dinner at Vic & Anthony's in the Golden Nugget was AMAZING!!! Excellent service, mood lighting and the classic crooning of Frank Sinatra in the background set the mood for a top notch meal. You may not think that a hotel in old town Vegas would boast some serious cuisine, but Vic & Anthony's did. I indulged in roasted salmon stuffed with smoked gouda and jumbo lump crab, served with mashed potatoes and asparagus. I washed dinner down with an amazing glass of wine and we also polished off a complimentary flourless chocolate torte (we were celebrating a birthday).
Of course while in Old Town, we also had to indulge in one of the trashiest (in a good way) and most calorie-laden treats ever... deep fried Twinkies and Oreos. Lucky for us, Mermaid's has an assortment of deep-fried wonders for cheap. After guzzling a liter of bad daiquiri, almost anyone would think these were delicious. The consensus in our group was that the Oreo's were best after being dunked in batter and hot oil and covered in powdered sugar.
Another highlight meal of this trip was brunch at Hash House A Go Go in the Imperial Palace. Eating meals in Vegas can be a daunting and expensive endeavor. This restaurant was featured on Man vs Food, so we knew it would be good and we were right! The food was tasty, fresh and affordable. I had a scramble made with goat cheese, sundried tomatoes and fresh basil. Annie ordered the S'mores Mocha, which was as rich as any dessert, but oh-so tasty!
