You may or may not know, but I spent last weekend in Vegas. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to try any expensive tasting menus at fine dining establishments, but I was able to check out some other interesting, affordable places to eat…Max Brenner being one.
I had brunch on Friday morning and started off with a dark chocolate mocha. They served it in a “hug mug” which has no handles and is supposed to be shaped to give the drinker a better “smell” of the drink, thus leading to a better experience. Allergies kicked in this weekend, so I wasn’t quite able to smell anything…but it did taste good, that’s for sure!
I had a craving for an savory breakfast over a sweet one, so I ordred the huevos rancheros sunrise burrito. The rest of the table ordered:
mushroom & ricotta pizza
guilt free omelet
I enjoyed my breakfast burrito a lot. The burrito was made up of eggs, chorizo, tomatoes, and pepper jack. It was served with a side of salsa, sour cream, and breakfast potatoes.
During the meal, I was able to try some of the pizza and omelet. They both tasted so-so. Unfortunately, they were really nothing to write home about.
At the end of the meal, I had zero room to try the famed chocolate pizza! Luckily, there’s a Philly location and hopefully I can try that soon.
