Posts Tagged ‘Treasure Island hotel’

Spent a long weekend in Las Vegas with my girlfriends and checked out a few restaurants. Over the next few weeks, while continuing to write about local eats, I’ll be running some posts on this trip.

Before we even got to Vegas, my friends had been convincing me to have Vietnamese food at Treasure Island, where we called home for the duration of our trip. Frankly I was hesitant – Vietnamese in Vegas, really? Once we checked in at our hotel, we walked around to look for an alternative so I didn’t have to eat Vietnamese. I was out of luck. Other restaurants either didn’t seem all that interesting, or they were serving something I didn’t feel like at the time. Alright, Vietnamese it is.

Food

The restaurant is actually attached to the Coffee Shop of the Treasure Island, which offers a different menu – a Western menu with sandwiches and mains like fish & chips and steak. However, you cannot order from both menus. Once you selected to eat in the Pho section, you can only order from the Pho menu. Within this menu it not only has Vietnamese dishes, but also a few Chinese style stir-fries. Just to be safe, I ordered the basic Cooked Beef with Rice Noodle Soup. This normally costs you around $7 in Vancouver – this cost me US$12.25. After all, it’s Las Vegas.
