Food in Las Vegas

There are different kinds of foods in Las Vegas. because we were all so sick of fast food, we decided to seek for other foods that are similar. It was pretty interesting to see how things are different back at home.

Take for example the design of the paper bag in McDonalds. The food that was served was also different. Beverages were free-flow, you can drink as much as you want. However, the people here are not as kiasu as people back home. They would not bring bottles to collect these beverages. People here would normally consume then leave the restaurant. It is so different just by looking at the food alone.

I dined at the Rainforest Cafe @ MGM Grand with my roomie Santhyaa and some of my classmates on the Las Vegas Strip. Rainforest Cafe was once in Liang Court beside Daimaru and it has been closed for many years. I don’t really remember the last time I saw it – which was really long time ago. Food served was good, but service was a bit slower because they were running full house but nonetheless, it was really well-themed and I enjoyed the foods and the company.

The King & I is  a Thai restaurant that is opposite our school and it was interesting to know that they do deliveries to UNLV students and the food served here was really authentic and I haven’t tasted something so tasty back at home. I enjoyed their service very much and we had a chat with the deliveryman who is already a grandfather. He was also a student in NSU (Nevada South University) back in 1969 before it was known as UNLV now. He told us when he first started his hotel major and he was using textbooks that were written by Cornell University Professors but after a few years the Cornell professors came to UNLV to become professors. It took UNLV 5 years to be comparable to Cornell and Duke which was interesting to know. Good food and service, and they do serve Vegetarian food! 10% discount for Lunch and 15% discount for Dinner. ONLY for UNLV Students.
