Feature // She Forks Vegas

Looking to have a last minute summer getaway this weekend? We’re talking about Vegas, baby. If you’re in Vegas and looking for yummy spots to eat, check out our guide below for some of our picks.

Yoshi Burrito

A recent trend that has taken over Las Vegas is the concept of a sushi burrito. Yes, you heard that right, a sushi burrito. First sushi donuts, then sushi tacos, now sushi burritos. Hey, I’m not complaining.
We went to Yoshi, next to Cinnaholic, for lunch. The sushi burrito is just what it sounds like, and after conversing with one of the managers, she recommended the Katana. It had all my favorite sushi ingredients: Spicy tuna, Shrimp tempura, Crab, Avocado, “Yum Yum” sauce aka spicy mayo, and Sesame Soy sauce. As I saw her create my burrito, I kept thinking to myself, this is so much bigger than just a normal sushi roll – it’s obnoxiously large!!- but how does it taste? When I took my first bite, my tastebuds went into sushi ecstasy! This was one the of best things I’ve had in a really long time. I’m so jealous our desert sister city has a billion places to grab these and you can even order them online. Sushi Burritos on demand?! Please migrate to Phoenix! Please!!

Hash House A Go Go

Hash House has enormous portions. If you plan to eat here, either prepare to take home leftovers or to split the meal with a few of  your buddies. They’re known for their chicken and waffles and also their Bloody Mary’s, but we decided to try some new items.
We ordered the rainbow drink, the Spiked Kiwi Watermelon Lemonade, and I ordered the Meatloaf Hash. The rainbow drink tasted delicious, just like juice, and it’s oh-so-pretty that we finished it pretty quickly. The Meatloaf Hash was also very tasty, moist and delicious with spinach and cheese over a bed of taters. Honestly, you can’t really go wrong with anything you order here, just bring your appetite and loose fitting pants.

Nacho Daddy Downtown

Went to Nacho Daddy after multiple people recommended it to us. The place is a dimly lit restaurant located on the edge of Fremont, but I wouldn’t necessarily classify it as a hole in the wall. I appreciated that it’s a pretty unassuming spot. We ordered two Nachos and ate family style, the Nacho Average Burger Nacho and Filet Mignon Nacho. Wow, these nachos are absolutely loaded! We all had our favorite, but mine was the Filet Mignon Nacho. It sounds like a pretty simple substitute for standard nachos, just replacing ground beef with filet mignon and dousing beans, cheese, sour cream, guac, and pico de gallo on top, but that substitute made all the difference. It’s the perfect late night snack after hours of crazy shenanigans.
