Okay, these pictures are 6 months old. Sorry, a lot has happened since this trip. I don’t know what was up with me but I was sick for almost the entire trip. I got super air sick and just when I thought it was better, it flared up again the next day. It was such a bummer. I still tried to eat some good stuff while I was there. I also came home and tested positive for covid a day after I came home so I don’t know if I was going through it with Covid during the trip or…from the travel home. My constant travel companion that shared a room with me did not get covid so it was all very confusing.
This was my 3rd trip to Vegas and I did enjoy it despite the sickness. I think it is because I am older and wiser (debateable), anyway it was nice traveling again after a 2 year forced break. First stop after we landed? It was late night so we found a ramen joint that is open very late hours, Shokku Ramen. We ordered takeout to bring back to the room because the wait to eat in was too long.
Ichiraku | $24.20
traditional pork broth served with yellow noodles, pork chashu, soy-cured egg, bamboo shoots, naruto, nori & green onions
Not my dish, it was enjoyed but is that worth $25? I don’t know.
Large Chasu Fried Rice | $13.20
egg rice, seasoned and wok-fried with pork, imitation crab, green onions & ginger
Yeah, so I was still feeling kind of nauseous so I went for a comfort food. Fried rice. I thought it was alright, nothing to write home about (even though I am writing a blog about it)
Gyoza | $12.10
7 grilled japanese dumplings
Once again. Nothing special. It was probably made in-house which is nice but $12 for a few gyoza is not my idea of a good time. I am looking at their website and noticed their dining in menu is way cheaper than their take-out menu. That’s dirty.
Next place is Korean! Once again, wasn’t feeling great nor was I wanting anything to eat but I think when you’re sick, you should be hydrated and fed! So we ordered take-out from Seoul Tofu, they are old school so we had to do a phone order.
Seafood and Green Onion Pancake | $14.95
Really good! I wish I wasn’t sick so I could eat more of this.
I love how they packed this and I liked the sides they give! Sometimes banchan is my favorite part of the meal.
Bibimbap | $14.95
Ugh, I don’t know how much of a thing this is in all Korean restaurants but they had quite a bit of romaine lettuce in this. I did not like it. I don’t like romaine lettuce in my bibimbap. Other than that, this dish would have been good! Part 1 pau!
hey, $24 for ramen is cheap! My co-worker went to David Chang’s place and paid over $60!!! She said it was the best she ever ate but I think it was Theory of Cognitive Dissonance kicking in.
The Korean food looks really good! Romaine lettuce in bibimbap does sound a little weird. I lilke some green or red leaf lettuce in my bibim kook su because they’re tender and kind of match with the somen.
Hahaha I think you told me about that bowl of ramen and I no can pay $60 for one bowl of noodles. I am okay just eating instant kine too. Okay the tender lettuce sounds great in bibimkooksoo but the romaine in my rice was kind of bitter. It was a bummer.
I am thinking take out might be more expensive these days because the container prices have gone up…
The online sites are tricky! If you don’t check, you don’t realize they jack up the prices of each item!!
