Viva Las Vegan!

Last night was so much fun. We went to La Reve, which is like nothing I’ve seen before. It didn’t have much of a plot, but I just wanted to see people dive into the water and fly from the ceiling. It was quite the show.

After La Reve, we went to Botero Steak. This is probably the first time H and I have gone to a steakhouse, because there is nothing for me to eat. However, Steve Wynn recently became a vegan and he requires the restaurants in his resorts to have a vegetarian/vegan menu. Not just an entree, an entire menu! I ordered the vegan tasting menu, because it all looked good.

My first course was a broccoli soup, which was as nice as broccoli soup can be.

They also brought out a bread basket with olive oil, regular thyme butter and vegan butter. There was a sourdough-type loaf and some really good cranberry rolls.

The second course was mushroom muffaletta sliders. The mushrooms were the “bread” of the sliders, which was not what I expected, but really good.

The third course was a quinoa pasta. This would also be a great tasting menu if you eat a gluten-free diet. The sauce was very light and the noodles tasted just like regular pasta noodles.

My favorite course was the fourth: tofu, eggplant and avocado napoleon served over broccoli. It’s my four favorite foods on one plate!

I shared the dessert course with H, because we were both pretty full. It was a creme brûlée with strawberries, mango, and bananas on top. Delicious!
