2. PIZZA ROCK

Based in Downtown Las Vegas, this restaurant offers six different types of pizza that is just perfect! Plus, the atmosphere is one of energy and fun; making this place a perfect restaurant for those looking to unwind, pre-drink perhaps but still eat fantastic food.

If you love pizza but looking for somewhere on the strip, make sure you check out Cosmopolitan’s Hidden Pizza. This was one of my favourite places to eat in Vegas and is perfect for a late-night dinner.

3. DISTRICT ONE KITCHEN & BAR

Inspired by the food stalls and vendors in District One of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – this restaurant offers Asian delights. Bringing flavours from across South East Asia, this is a great experience for those visiting Las Vegas and a firm favourite of ours.

Try the Coconut Pork Belly and Lemongrass beef!

Food type: Asian

Opening hours: 11 am – 2 am (closed Tuesdays)

Dress Code: Casual

6. GORDAN RAMSAY’S BURGER

Found in Planet Hollywood, of course, Ramsay was going to make it to this list. If you are looking for a good burger in a casual but comfortable atmosphere, head to BURGER. There are so many different variations of burgers here, you will find one you just love. I always opt for the Pork Chop and Applesauce Burger or the Hamburger with 3 types of meat.

Creative Travel Rating: 10/10

7. HONEY SALT

A good 20-minute drive from the strip, Honey Salt offers arguably the best brunch in town. With a farm-to-table-inspired menu and a real community, family feel to it, you would never think you are in Las Vegas at all.

Food type: American bistro

Dress Code: Casual

Average cost: The array of breakfast options costs around $13 whilst All You Can Drink options costs $18. Lunch costs a similar price to brunch whilst dinner mains cost between $24 – $36.

Creative Travel Rating: 9/10 (A little out of the way but worth the visit!)

WAZUZU Places to eat in Vegas

8. WAZUZU

Sit under the towering glitzy dragon and try the fusion of Thai, Chinese and Japanese food. This is a popular restaurant in the Wynn hotel and makes a great place to have an Asian lunch.

9. LUV IT FROZEN CUSTARD

Luv it Custard places to eat in Vegas

Of course, a dessert restaurant was going to end up on this list! It is me writing the list after all. Anyway, opposite The Stratosphere is this understated dessert haven. The list of sundaes is crazy long, as are the topping options!

Food type: Dessert

Opening hours: 1pm – 10pm

Average cost: With sundaes costing around $5, this is a steal!
