Our last night in Las Vegas

IMG_7380 [640x480]This is our very last night in Las Vegas, and after a day of shopping and visiting Freemount Street, where the Old Las Vegas strip used to be, we decided to watch the Treasure Island Hotel’s free Siren show.  At 5:15pm, the street outside Treasure Island was packed with adults and kids alike, all waiting impatiently for the show to start.  But don’t fret, you won’t get bored if you like people watching in Vegas.  An old guy dressed as Vegas walked past, women with the trashiest get up and suddenly, there is a half naked man in his undies, dared by his friends to do a hand stand.  Classssyyyyyy….

IMG_7405 [640x480]The show itself is certainly not Oscar winning performance, with over choreographed moves and tacky one-liners.  The storyline about all these hot sirens on a boat and enslaving sailors was so predictable that I couldn’t help but rolled my eyes.  Hubby loved it though, but I think it has to do with the Sirens’ skimpy tops and sexy dance moves rather than the storyline.

IMG_7396 [640x480]To start, we order  few entree’s to share.  First came the Maryland crab cakes, with tomato relish and basil aioli $18.  The crab cakes were delish- perfectly crispy on the outside and piping hot and yummy on the inside.  Ohhhh yeahhh

IMG_7398 [640x480]Next was the spicy tuna tartare $21.  Beautifully decorated with microherbs, dollops of wasabi, ginger, shallot, a small blob of cucumber, a smear of spicy sauce and crispy wonton skins, the tuna tartare and avocado stack  was a creation of perfection.  The beautiful taste and texture contrast was amazing.  My only complaint is that there is not more of it 😦

IMG_7399 [640x480]Shortly after our mains came.  Hubby order the roasted half chicken $29.  I raised my eyebrows at him because chicken is a tricky dish.  Restaurants either get it right or it will be overcooked, tough and dried out.  Surprisingly, this half chicken was perfectly cooked.  It was arguably THE BEST roast chicken hubby and I have EVER tasted in our whole lives.

IMG_7401 [640x480]I ordered hand cut spaghetti with tomato, garlic, basil and add meatballs $24.  Alas mine was a bit on the dry side.  I love lots of sauce in my pasta so this was a little bit disappointing.  That being said I love the texture of the pasta- it’s very different from what I am used to but in a good way.

Our waitress asked whether we wanted coffee or tea but we told her that we actually wanted dessert.  She hesistated and I wondered why.  Turns out, because I told the maitre’d it’s our anniversary dinner, the restaurant gave us a free dessert!  So instead of having one dessert to share we had two desserts! Heehee!

IMG_7404 [640x480]Our selection was a chocolate cake with crunchy bits on top served with vanilla bean icecream $10.  I don’t actually remember much about it except it was pretty good and not very sweet so it suited us quite well.

IMG_7403 [640x480]Our “anniversary” dessert was the Lemon Meringue Pie which I remembered liking more, especially because the little blueberry bits that surrounds it has these delicious candied lemon peels that goes so well with blueberries.  NOMS.

Overall we were very impressed by the food and service in Postrio by Wolfgang Puck.  What a great way to end our trip in Las Vegas!  8.5/10
