[Travelogue] Las Vegas March 2012

Standard

We flew from NY to Las Vegas via JetBlue and it was a pleasant flight. Touched down and checked into the MGM Grand. There are a few pics in this post that I took from the net, must be all the gambling we did.


Took a quick shower (a must after a flight)


 

First meal was @ Grand Lux Cafe, The Venetian. We worked up an appetite walking from MGM to Venetian. See the map. Might look short but it was a good 45 minutes walk, with plenty of distractions along the way.
E was happy with his burger and my pasta was light yet creamy. Portions are huge and our server was nice to box up the rest for us.



Also at The Venetian was the Bouchon Bakery and their very popular macaroons. My favorite is the pistachio one. Their macaroons are also slightly bigger than the regular ones. The TKO (Thomas Keller Oreo) was recommended by the lady but it tasted horrible. I’m not sure why, perhaps we kept it overnight before consuming it but it tasted nothing like oreos. Their croissants were still nice and buttery the next morning.


Casear Palace


Je t’aime Paris



We love the dancing fountains @ Bellagio so much that we stayed for another show. They come on every 15 minutes between 7pm – midnight and day time shows are half-hourly starting at 3pm on weekdays and 12 noon on weekends.


CUT @ Palazzo for their famous steak.


Their complimentary bread and butter rolls were slightly salted and tasted so good. I love simple food.


Appetiser – bone marrow flan with mushroom marmalade. Thumbs up!


We got the Tasting of New York Sirloin. Japanese Wagyu 2Oz, American “Kobe Style” 4Oz, USDA PRIME Dry Age 4Oz. THey each had accompanying sauces but we are a purist when it comes to steak.


A true medium rare. I love how they char one side and it really gives it more bite. ooohh


Do catch Terry Fator show when you are there. A definite hit and pure amazement how someone could sing so well in so many different style through puppets. It’s no wonder why he won America’s Got Talent. DO get your tickets earlier cos they ran out pretty quickly.


Bellagio Hotel lobby. Ain’t that pretty


@ Bellagio’s Flower Garden


We didn’t do much in LV. Gambling and shopping were the main activites and no pics of that 🙂

And we’re off to San Francisco!
