it seems as if i was just there, but i found myself in las vegas once again last week. this time i wasn't working, so i was able to dine at some fave spots as well as discover some new ones...

of course, a stop for some frrrozen hot chocolate at serendipity3 was a must.

remember my first encounter with the slider truck? well this time i FINALLY got to try slidin' thru! ric & all the guys of slidn' thru are amazing. i loved searching for the truck's location, it felt like a treasure hunt :)

go here and vote for them to be a part of the next great food truck race! they're currently 5th, but a spot in the top 3 would be better. and hurry! voting ends this week.

ric, you are amazing!

eggplant caprese - grilled eggplant. roma tomato. basil. fresh mozzarella. balsamic reduction = the best.

then a mandatory stop at retro for some cupcake deliciousness.

another treasure hunt lead to a new discovery, philly's famous italian ices truck! the mango was my fave.

the fortune cookies at fin were homemade and the best i've ever had.

nothing like a campfire marshmallow shake from blt burger at 2 o'clock in the morning.

and my favorite new discovery...max brenner! a friend told me to go here and it did not disappoint. we only went for dessert, so i still have so many things to try..
the euphoria peanut butter chocolate fudge sundae. deep chocolate peanut butter ice cream, dulce de leche ice cream, caramelized toffee bananas, pure chocolate chunks, milk chocolate sauce & warm peanut butter sauce. garnished with whipped cream & crunchy hazelnut bits = divine.

not pictured: lunch at the bellagio buffet & a stop at jimmy john's.

yes, it's true. while some may go to vegas to party & gamble, i go to eat.
i don't know if its right or wrong, it's just what it is.
now i can't wait for my next trip back :)

these food trucks seem to be a west coast rage - cuz ive never seen them in chicago. and so cool you went to serendipity - i tried to go to one in NY and the line was over 2 hours long. if i had more time, i would have waited - but everyone said its so worth it!

your vegas trip looks so much more fun than mine haha, or should i say much more delicious! i'm going to have to try blt and retro bakery next time.

i think i ordered the wrong things at max brenner, because everything i had didn't really WOW me. the burgers were really good though! the chocolate pizza was OKAY- kind of simple for $8. you should try it next time and let me know what you think!

i like your unconventional vegas trip- you know minus all the clubbing crap. haha
