Ok, so you are on a budget and have just about 48 hours in Vegas at The SLS hotel? Well lets face it, this is not a budget hotel but here are some tips that should help you have an enjoyable dining experience!

Breakfast: In the hotel lobby near the front desk you’ll find The Perq, which offers quick breakfast options, beverages and assorted gelato.


Salmon platter and coffee to jump start the day!

Lunch: Just under 2 miles from The SLS hotel & Casino is In-N-Out Burger, a renowned west coast guilty pleasure.

To get there, you can take the bus down Sahara Avenue with pick up at the stop located in front of “The Worlds Largest Gift Shop”. (Especially helpful if you weren’t as successful as you would have liked to be in the casino the night before.)

The goods — Double Double cheese burger and Animal Style fries

Pro-Tip: Refer to the Secret Menu

Refresher: Back at the hotel, have a spot of tea or coffee with some pastries and or an Acai bowl.


The Acai bowl can be purchased at The Perq and in this instance, its more of a Acai gelato with toppings versus a traditional bowl.

Pro-Tip: Complimentary pastries and refreshments are offered to hotel guests in the VIP lounge by the elevators.

Bar Bites: I highly recommend you have a full meal at one of the Bazaar locations once in your lifetime. If that is not an option on your visit but you want to experience Bazaar Meat by Jose Andres on a budget, grab some bites at the bar:


Grilled Baby Corn with mayonnaise, chile piquin, popcorn powder

I love the idea of this dish, it is a play on Mexican street style corn. You will find it on the menu under Vegetables & Salads. 


From some little sandwiches: Fried Oxtail Steamed Bun with Quail Egg, this was my favorite!


From some little starters: Cotton Candy Foie Gras, yes please.

Or stop into Bazaar Meat for some dessert:


The selection from upper left to bottom right: salted caramel, rum ganache puffed pastry, dark oil, yuzu raspberry custard tart, and an all edible caramel.

The all edible caramel is made with potato paper, its moves like these that make the Bazaar an ingenious establishment.
