The signature foods of Las Vegas may not be as iconic as the Philly cheesesteak or Chicago deep-dish pizza, but Vegas has its own collection of essential dishes with unique charm.
Below is a list of the signature foods in Las Vegas:
Trash Can Nachos at Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen and Bar
Before you hit the casinos or enjoy the Vegas nightlife, grab a plate of Trash Can Nachos to share at Guy Fieri’s Las Vegas restaurant. Fieri is famous for his show, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, and If you’ve tuned in, you may have an idea of what to expect from this behemoth of a nacho dish.
Comprised of an entire bag of tortilla chips topped with cheese, pork, beans, jalapeños, sour cream, chipotle BBQ sauce, and more, this serving of nachos is so big that it comes in a trash can. Unused and clean, of course!
Beef Wellington at Hell’s Kitchen
Gordon Ramsey’s Beef Wellington takes center stage at Hell’s Kitchen in Caesars Palace. As the famous chef’s signature dish, Beef Wellington is the quintessential meal at Ramsey’s restaurant.
With tender, melt-in-your-mouth beef inside a golden puff pastry, mushroom duxelles, red wine demi-glaze, and sides of potato puree and root vegetables, this reinterpretation of the classic British dish is an essential stop on your Vegas food tour.
Belly of the Beast Burger at Truffles N Bacon
The Belly of the Beast Burger is the ultimate challenge for burger lovers. Nothing can prepare you for this 10.5-pound burger at Truffles N Bacon.
The Belly of the Beast is a mouth-watering burger full of flavor and flair. With cheese, tater tots, and four sunny-side-up eggs, this beast is wider than a hubcap. The burger can easily feed 6 to 8 people, but it must be ordered 72 hours in advance!
Sushi Cupcakes at Jaburritos
Don’t be fooled by the sweet name; sushi Cupcakes at Jaburritos on the LINQ Promenade combine two of the best foods in the world – sushi and burritos – into the ultimate, savory treat.
With a fried wonton base and rice shell as the cupcake bottom, sushi classics like spicy tuna, crab, or salmon function as the cupcake’s “frosting.” Spicy mayo, cream cheese, guacamole, and sriracha toppings add fantastic flavor as the icing on the cake.
One Pound Meatball at LAVO
The showstopping meatball at LAVO in the Venetian Hotel weighs a full pound. Served with sausage ragu and fresh whipped ricotta, this meal perfectly accompanies your visit to the Italian-themed Venetian.
After you enjoy your meatball, you can take advantage of the authentic Venice surroundings by taking a trip in a gondola down the indoor canals in the Grand Canal Shoppes.
24-Layer Chocolate Cake at Strip House
Perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, or treating yourself, the 24-layer chocolate cake is the signature dish at the Strip House.
This decadent dessert – 24 layers of cake alternated with smooth chocolate filling and chocolate ganache – can feed up to 10 people. It’s so good that you might not want to share.
With some of the most luxurious, luscious, and larger-than-life dishes around, take advantage of Sin City’s restaurants and treat yourself to a food tour while in fabulous Las Vegas.
