Meg over at Runner’s Kitchen wanted me to do a guest post for her covering the past weekend.
Check it out here.
Of course, it’s still fast food which I pretty much sworn off on now, unless I’m desperate. But if I’m out west, I might give in to In-N-Out every time I have the opportunity…

My words and photos really can’t describe this basket. Everything was amazing. Easily the best pastries I’ve ever had. Light, flaky, delicately sweet. I wish I could choose a favorite out of the bunch, but that’s too difficult.
Here are the dishes ordered around the table:
I also got to try the corned beef hash and the sourdough waffles. The corned beef hash was the most delicious and elegant corned beef hash I’ve ever had. The scrambled egg was cooked to perfection too. Where do I begin with the sourdough waffles… I had one bite and fell in love. It was “just right”. They were light and airy, accompanied perfectly with maple syrup, strawberries, and Tahitian vanilla infused butter. Oh em gee.
Everyone was full after this meal..and very, very content. If you’re ever in Vegas or in California, make sure you check this place out. I promise you won’t regret it.
Also, there’s Bouchon Bakery on the basement floor of The Venetian. I didn’t get a chance to check it out, but I would assume you could buy the pastries there.
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.

There were some burgers on the menu which almost had me, ex: lamb merguez – colorado lamb, cilantro yogurt sauce, cucumber, olives, red onion, and tomato; blt – angus beef, double smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, blt burger sauce. My eyes locked on to the Great Hills Blue (see image above), a burger with angus beef, Great Hills blue cheese, balsamic caramelized onions, and mushrooms. Since I’m a sucker for blue cheese on a burger, this decision was a no brainer. My friend decided to go the classic route with an angus burger with lettuce, tomato, and onion.
Leaving for Vegas soon and there’s a location there, but I’ll probably go to In-N-Out to satisfy my burger cravings!

There are other locations in Las Vegas and Hong Kong!
ps. I want to order and enjoy the whole burger, shake, and fries meal (at any place) someday, but I can never seem to be that hungry… anyone else feel that way?
