Vegas with Baby & on a budget -- Part 4

There's no question that if you're traveling with an infant who's beginning to eat table foods, you're not going to choose to dine at a sushi restaurant. Good thing we didn't travel to Vegas with an infant who's beginning to eat table foods (Benny)!

On our last night in Vegas, we decided to go for sushi since we had heard that the Yellowtail restaurant inside the Bellagio serves an amazing Filet Mignon Roll.

My hottie and I made reservations and on our way to dinner, we couldn't help but notice that Vegas restaurants nowadays have touchscreen menus available for patrons to check out the meal line-up before entering....Ahhhh! gotta love technology!!

At Yellowtail we were seated in an area with a view of the Bellagio Fountains, which was lovely.
We ordered several types of sushi and the Filet Mignon roll was unbelievable. I could have probably had three more all to myself but...moderation, everything in moderation!!

We also had the most amazing Asian-fusion crème brulee for dessert-- Ginger Crème Brulee. Paul said it was the best he's ever had.

We will return to Yellowtail one day. That's a fact.

That evening, we gambled a little more...had a few free drinks on the casino floor and eventually walked back to our room to relax for the rest of our last night in Vegas.

Have you ever heard of Hash House A Go-Go? It's a restaurant that serves up extra-large breakfast meals that are actually full of flavor and texture. This was another Vegas goal-- to have the Sage Chicken & Waffles at Hash House A Go Go...Oh, and we did.

First I ordered their signature watermelon, kiwi lemonade (without alcohol, of course) and I went for the Snickers Pancake. Yes, a pancake with chunks of Snickers chocolate. It was so darn big, I compare it to the size of a steering wheel. When Paul's order arrived, I just started giggling.

That meal was so big, we could have shared with another couple and still had leftovers. It had biscuits, mashed potatoes & gravy, waffles, fried chicken and special sauces all sandwiched together. I am not kidding when I say it was scrumptious...but it defeated my diet efforts and workout accomplishments thus far.

How were we supposed to drive home so full? In any case, we did and before leaving, we bought Benny a Hash House A Go-Go meal bib!

And that, is how we concluded a trip to Vegas without baby but with baby in mind constantly (We missed him so much). I have more tips of places and things to do with babies in Vegas...just shoot me an email and I will be glad to help.
