Food Travel

Las Vegas

Las Vegas is a great city for foodies, especially if you live on the Westcoast.  It is only a 2 hour flight from Vancouver, making it an easy weekend trip.  There is great variety in cuisines and price points.  Many “famous chefs” have opened a location in Vegas.  From 3 Michelin star places like Guy Savoy, to my favorite sushi in the world – Kabuto (used to be), Vegas is probably the city I have visited most often.  Visit the Vegas strip for big name chefs, or take a trip to Chinatown, Spring  Mountain Road, and you will be rewarded with a huge variety of Asian choices.

Here are some of the places I try to visit when I am in town and reviews of other places:


Sushi Hiroyoshi (good alternative to Kabuto)

Mayfair Supper Club (must visit)

Shang Artisan Noodle (good spot for handmade noodles and spicy wonton; be prepared to wait)

Madang (good Korean spot for lunch off strip)

Barry’s Prime Steakhouse



Costa di Mare




Kabuto – To me, its the best sushi in the world.  – 2021 update – this is no longer the case.

Scarpetta – I love the spaghetti and polenta.

Bazaar Meat – Steak tartare, suckling pig, and anything meat (plus the Robuchon style mash potatoes).

Milos – Amazing Prix Fixe lunch value and consistently good.
