Best Thing you ate/drank

I am particularly curious about those worldly travelers who recently returned from vacations.   And MarriedName, what was the best thing you drank/ate in Vegas!?

Re: Best Thing you ate/drank

  • Over the weekend the best thing I ate was the marinated sirloin steak along with a glass of cabernet.

  • MH made some slow-roasted oxtail last night that was to die for.
  • You caught me just in time, OPS!  :)

    Vegas - we had amazing food!  My favorite were the stone crab claws at Joe's Stone Crab & Prime Steak.  The next night we went to Il Mulino, and the lobster ravioli with truffle butter were great too, but I was so full by that point that I could barely eat them.  :(   Best drinks were probably the espresso martini after dinner at Joe's or the French cosmo at Mon Ami Gabi before we left for the airport - everywhere else I tried to stay with vodka & club soda. 

    Over the weekend we took H's parents out to dinner and I had a Thai cioppino that was unbelievable! 

  • Unfortunately I'm not a worldly traveler, but the best thing I ate this weekend was Velveeta shells and cheese. It really hit the spot!

    Sugar Factory NY Steak and a Red Velvet sunday for dessert!

  • I totally forgot MarriedName went to Vegas!  I can't wait to see photos.


    Because of my allergies, I wasn't able to eat anything too interesting, unfortunately.  I did find some soy-free chocolate bars that were delicious though...woot!  I also had a tasty blueberry dumpling with powdered sugar made from scratch. This was a huge deal to me since I haven't eaten at a restaurant in so long. 


    Here are some more interesting things that MH had:  wienerschnitzel in Germany; perogies and sausage in Poland; crepes with choc. and bananas in Czech Republic; these things called "langos" in Hungary - it's frisbee sized salty dough with sour cream, mozzarella cheese, and tomatoes (so random).  He also tried a different local beer every day.   

  • Best thing I ate was at the Casesar's Palace Buffet. I had the most amazing Chianti Braised Short Ribs. They were so delicate and tender and just melted in your mouth.


  • Either chocolate pancakes for lunch on Saturday, or cookies with PB cups inside at the local GTG on Sunday. Mmmm!

  • Best thing I ate was some Dutch goat cheese, and I even brought some back! A close second were the Stroopwafels, which are tiny waffles sandwiched together with caramel. They go perfectly with a glass of milk, and I definitely didn't bring enough back!
