We usually review restaurants close to home, but we were in Las Vegas and they do have some amazing restaurants. We started at the Mesa Grill- always love Bobby Flay- then late night pizza at Spago, Wolfgang Puck’s Vegas satellite. But the restaurant that really stood out for us was off the strip and near downtown- a place called Mundo. It’s a very upscale Mexican restaurant. The chef prepares not only beautiful but amazingly flavorful inventive dishes. I had skirt steak skewers with a chimichurri glaze, served with a jicama and green apple slaw. Others had chicken enchiladas, roasted chicken with a tamarind chili glaze, and carnitas with avocado pico de gallo and cucumber habañero salad. Everything was wonderful- if they had a Portland restaurant it would be a family favorite.
