When I was in Vegas in July, I was working in the Asian part of town. Tons of restaurants, but I didn't know anything about them (and didn't have time to check them out). Last year when I was at the SEMA show, we found a really good Korean BBQ place in a strip mall across the street from the Hard Rock Hotel/Casino on Paradise Road. Their were about ten of us, and we had a real KBBQ feast.
There is a very good, although pricey, Chineese restaurant in Caesar's Palace
called Mr. Chow
. It is also hard to find. You will also need reservations. TireRack
took us to dinner there, and picked up the tab.
We have a Ranch 99
here, but I have not been to it. It is a chain, so it is hard to know what to expect.
I stayed at Bally's
in July, and could see the High Roller
from my room. From what I understand, it is great, but takes a LONG time to go around.
There is good Italian food in Vegas, but I have not found good Cajun food outside of Cajun country -- or my own kitchen.
I've only been to Lake Tahoe once. I went there with a couple of friends/co-workers on the way back from a trade show in Vegas. We went there to Ski. I made a wrong turn on the back side of Squaw Valley
and had a big-time yard sale. I came home with a broken hand.
