Las Vegas is a city that never sleeps, it is also a city that is full of wonderful places to eat, sleep and have fun. I have been to the city countless times and have always enjoyed eats on and off the strip.

On my most recent trip I stayed at the large Mandalay Bay Resort Hotel located towards the southern end of the strip and fairly close to the international airport.  On some trips I love to explore the hotel, visiting the fitness centre and enjoying the amenities, however this time around I wasn’t in the room much, instead I was out and about exploring much of Las Vegas on foot or in the car heading off the strip.

For one of my meals, I checked out the popular Wicked Spoon (located in the Cosmopolitan Hotel), this was the coolest buffet I have been to in Las Vegas and one that featured many unique dishes as well as being very unique in presentation.

Weekend Champagne Brunch is $29 without champagne.

Dinner on Sat & Sun is served until 10 p.m.

For breakfast the next day I went off the strip for a visit to M & M Soul Food Café that specialized in Mississippi down home eats. I loved watching the locals eating in one of their favourite spots. Here I had the French Toast, Grits and tried some of their heavenly Sweet Potato Pie.

One of the best ways to get around Las Vegas is to utilize the free Monorails and that is the best way to get to and from The Cosmopolitan Hotel where The Wicked Spoon is located.
