Here begins the food reviews of the restaurants I went to recently in Las Vegas. Let’s start off with Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant, BurGR. ^_^
The point of the Las Vegas trip (also my first time ever to LV!!) was to partake in the Chinese Boot Camp (more on that in a future post). However, seeing as I was travelling to LV with some foodie friends and world travellers, a stop to BurGR was an obvious must! ^_^
Gordon Ramsay, as some of you may know, hosts a show called Hell’s Kitchen. He’s a celebrity chef that is reknown around the world, most for his flaming personality. It’s no surprise then that one of his restaurants features a flaming wall for his BurGR signage.
The five of us placed our name and number with the host while we wandered Planet Hollywood a bit until our number was called. About 20 minutes later, we got our table. Yay!
We quickly chose what to order since we were on a little time constraint (we bought tickets to watch the Zarkana Cirque de Soleil show for that night [!]). Our server was very friendly and sweet. She even accommodated a little sweet surprise for Eric since it was his birthday! :D
It felt unreal to be at Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant even though he wasn’t there in person that night. Hehe.
Vivian and I decided to share a burger since we both weren’t that hungry. Since it was our first time there, the Hell’s Kitchen Burger sounded like the go-to burger with avocado and roasted jalapeño peppers. Mmm. The burger patty was so juicy and tender. I was impressed!
The others guys’ burgers looked pretty nice too (ignore the blurriness — too much excitement going on that night).
We also shared an order of Truffle Parmesan Fries. They weren’t as salty as I anticipated (and wanted) them to be, but I did enjoy them quite a bit. At first, I only wanted to try a few, but one turn into two which turned into three which turned into a handful. It’s one of those situations where once you start, you just can’t stop (lol).
Lastly, the sweet surprise that I alluded to at the beginning was the dessert pops that our server brought for us for Eric’s birthday celebration. Yay! I got to try a bit of the Sticky Toffee Pudding Push Pops and I reallllly enjoyed how creamy and delicious the ice cream and cake parts were. A creative presentation and satisfying dessert! ^_^
It was an amazing first day in Vegas and I was so happy to be staking out the food places already. As I soon started to realize, Vegas was a pretty incredible foodie heaven. :)
Stay tuned for more Vegas restaurants in the upcoming week !
