Eating our way through Las Vegas

Our nearly annual trip to Las Vegas for the World Tea Expo is one of the highlights of our year. We look forward to learning about new teas, meeting new tea partners and brokers, and we of course look forward to seeing what’s new on the Las Vegas Strip. And being huge fans of food, we undoubtedly get really excited about what food we may find in Vegas.

 

Both of us are vegan, so sometimes when we travel we have a harder time finding food that suits us, however, over the past few years we have been happy to see the vegan food options really expand in Las Vegas. Nowadays, there are nearly endless vegan food options, from fine dining to grab and go, to street food style, Las Vegas has lots of food to offer.

 

Here are some highlights of what we had to eat on our trip from Summer 2021

Siegel's Bagelmania las vegas

Siegel's Bagelmania

This was a really cool place that offered tons of pastries, sandwiches, and of course bagels. They had delicious New York style bagels and we were surprised to find vegan cream cheese, which was really tasty. They also had a refreshing cucumber tomato salad. This place has been around since 1989 and the location we visited was a new location really close to the Las Vegas Convention Center. You can dine-in or get your order to go; if there is a lot going on at the convention center, this place can get really busy so plan accordingly.

Craig’s Vegan Ice Cream at Resorts World

We just happened to find this place while we were exploring one of the newest mega resorts on the Strip, Resorts World Las Vegas. This vegan ice cream was so good, we went back later in our trip for a second round! They have several flavors of ice cream to choose from and you can get sundaes and floats. Many of the toppings, however, were not vegan and the messaging wasn’t super clear about it.

We tried the Pali Pistachio and Kursten’s PB Kurunch 

Din Tai Fung at Aria

This is a Taiwanese restaurant located just off the casino floor at the Aria Resort, and it was honestly one of the best meals of our trip. We ordered several small plates and shareables and every single thing we ordered was delicious and perfectly prepared. The dishes were at times imaginative and simple, but everything was very fresh and tasty. Plus it’s always nice to be able to drink good tea (read more about tea in Vegas here) with a meal. We will definitely be going here again!

Flour & Barley at Linq Promenade

This brick oven pizza joint was perfect for grabbing a semi-quick lunch during our expo days. Located at the Linq Promenade and very close to the Flamingo Monorail station, it’s an ideal spot for conference attendees. We ended up returning to this spot again because we were really impressed with the pizzas. They had some interesting veggie topping options you don’t usually find like eggplant and zucchini, and they also offer vegan cheese (although lots of times we just order veggie with no cheese). The ingredients were fresh, the sauce was balanced and the crust was a highlight, the brick oven really comes through in the flavor.

Giadas cromwell las vegas italian vegan pasta

Giada at The Cromwell

This was our fancy meal of the trip, and it is from celebrity chef Giada De Laurentis. Italian with a California twist is from their website and that seems to accurately describe the food. There were lots of traditional Italian dishes on the menu and we were pleased to find they had some vegan options for entrees and sides. While being on the pricey side (I know, celebrity chef) everything we ordered was really good. Somehow, the sides almost took the spotlight over the entree. We were a little disappointed that the bread oven was not working that night. However we loved the house-made pasta and the partial view of the Bellagio Fountains show across the street.

Jaburritos at Linq Promenade

This was another lunch spot in the Linq Promenade and was easy to get to during our lunch break. It sounds pretty crazy but this place specializes in sushi-burritos. These were huge sushi burritos and they were delicious. They even had traditional Japanese green tea to go with!

Nacho Daddy

This mexican restaurant on the strip is one of our favorites after first eating here a couple of years ago. They have tons of vegan options and everything has always been really fresh and well prepared. As you can see, the portions are huge! This place is located just around the corner of the Miracle Mile Shops and Planet Hollywood.

Pieology at MGM Grand

We found this place while walking around the MGM Grand exploring. We stopped in for a quick bite and were pleasantly surprised. This place is a chain, however we had never tried it. It seems to be a lot like Blaze Pizza, which we go to frequently at Disney Springs, and you can make your own pizza. The flavor of the crust and sauce were top notch and the veggie toppings were fresh. We would go back here again in the future.

Sushi Samba at The Palazzo

This was a repeat visit from a previous trip because we liked it so much last time. The concept is sushi with South American influences served in an art filled atmosphere. Unfortunately some of the flavors on this visit were really off; the sauces seemed way too vinegary and some of the veggie sushi rolls were just bland. The mushroom dish was really good but that’s about it on this trip and we are not sure we would go here again.

Truth & Tonic at The Venetian

On our last meal of the trip, we researched beforehand and found this breakfast spot hidden away from the Strip up in the spa area of the Venetian Resort. It was really difficult to get to (we had to ask a couple different employees and get past a security checkpoint) and a bit strange because we encountered only one other person here. However, the food was amazing and they had some really healthy options including fresh detoxifying juice blends. This was a perfect way to end our culinary adventures in Las Vegas and we will definitely be going here again in the future.
