Piggy in a US Diner?!
The Fashion Walk
3200 Las Vegas Blvd S., Las Vegas
Hubby has one food wish when he is in America. He wanted to try a diner. I shook my head. Of all the yummy food places in America, he wanted to try a diner? Well I guess I shouldn’t be surprised considering in Europe he really wanted Mcdonald’s.
We came across a diner-like joint in Fashion Walk of Las Vegas called Johnny Rockets… and I relented. It WAS the ONLY foodie wish Hubby had. At least he wasn’t begging for this every day. So, God help us, we walked in.
We were whatsapp-ing Esky while we waited for our order, sending him pics of Johnny Rocket’s decor and he texted back, saying its just like the movies!
If I wasn’t lactose intolerant I would probably go all out and order a milkshake. Roll eyes.
Hubby’s food came, his was this Philly cheesesteak roll with chips. I think the chips was unlimited. Shudder. Hubby liked it of course.
I ordered a chilli burger and my waitress warned me it’s chilli. Pfftttt. It wasn’t. I also got a choice between unlimited chips or salad, which I chose salad with a balsamic vinegar dressing.
The burger wasn’t as massively huge as I expected. I bit into it and wondered what part of cow I was eating… It’s probably no worse than Mcdonald’s but I don’t actually eat McDonald’s either.
Then I spied white flat looking slice in my burger and at first I delightedly thought that it was egg cos the texture does look a bit like fried eggs. But sadly it was plastic cheese. Yuck.
My salad wasn’t half bad. The balsamic vinegar was scary though. Why, exactly,was balsamic vinegar THICK? Anyhoo, my salad was also half covered with plastic cheese which I tried to scrape out as much as I can. For the next few rounds of free salad I told them to hold the cheese. I think the waitress has never seen any of her customers eating so much salad before. I just felt that I haven’t had enough veggies for a long time and if that’s the only place I can eat my heart out, then by all means go for it.
All in all it’s not worse than Macdonald’s. And at least they give me unlimited salad. 5.5/10
After our diner experience we went back to Wynn/ Encore to catch a show called Le Reve. An offshoot of Cirque de Soleil, it was like acrobatics under water. I quite enjoyed it, although there are some parts which were a bit repetitive and about a girl’s wet dream about being bored with her relationship and being courted by half naked merman was a bit clichéd. Once again, I got discounted tickets through Travelzoo.com
and got about 30% off.
