Border Grill - Mandalay Bay - Las Vegas

Here comes another post from my recent trip to the dazzling Las Vegas. Unfortunately, I won't have much commentary on the food, because I had literally two bites of my plate. But again, aren't you here for the photos anyway? ;)

A good part of that day was spent on travelling, including getting up at 4 am to catch a five-hours flight from Toronto Pearson to Las Vegas McCarran. By the time dinner rolls around, I was exhausted and had absolutely no appetite. Thus I took a total of two good bites of my dinner before giving up. It was two tasty bites, if that helps the situation.

Located in the beautiful Mandalay Bay Resort on the Las Vegas Strip, Border Grill has a bit of a history. It is opened by Chef Susan Feniger and Chef Mary Sue Milliken. Sounds familiar? Yep, they are indeed the chefs featured on Bravo's "Top Chef Masters"! Being huge Top Chef fans, how can we resist?

As with all restaurants in these large hotel/casino/resorts, Border Grill was tastefully decorated. In hindsight, I wished we sat on the patio, which supposedly overlooks Mandalay Bay's beach and pool.

We started with chips and salsa, as well as a good old Margarita.




My boyfriend had the steak (of course he did, he is a carnivore). And I had the pork. :)

Oaxacan Strip Steak
seared 16 ounce steak, mole colorado, charred wild mushroom quesadilla, avocado tomato relish


Yucatan Pork
achiote pork slow roasted in banana leaves, caramelized onion, orange, cinnamon, honey lime yams, caramelized brussel sprouts, pineapple jicama salsa


All I can say is that the two bites I managed to eat was tasty. :)
Stay tuned, more Las Vegas travel posts coming up!


Until next time,
