Las Vegas Restaurants You Need to Visit

Published

on

There is no shortage of high-end restaurants in Las Vegas. The city is widely known for its top-notch cuisine and elaborate array of celebrity chef restaurants that cater to your every whim. But we settled on four that will absolutely blow your mind.

With endless decadence throughout the Las Vegas Strip, you can experience rare luxury and food that’s only available in Sin City.

MGM Resorts houses some of the best restaurants on the planet. Along with attracting some of the biggest names in the business, MGM and its affiliates provide world-class service and experiences that cannot be found anywhere else.

While we tried to be as fair and objective as possible in deciphering this list, it’s no surprise that most of these great places to grab one-of-a-kind grub are staples in MGM resort locations.

Who doesn’t want the best value? The most bang for your buck only happens when you earn special rewards on every purchase from MGM. Be sure to enhance your experience with the benefit of M life Rewards.

The options are endless and the delicacies so delicious that it’s almost impossible to settle on a winner. With literally thousands of restaurants to choose from, MGM’s restaurants kept finding themselves at the top of the list.

Although it was hard to pick just four, here are the restaurants by famous chefs that will leave you absolutely speechless.

Best Friend

The only Las Vegas location of LA chef Roy Choi, Best Friend in the Park MGM Hotel and Casino has opened to rave reviews and is quickly gaining the reputation of the best Korean BBQ in Sin City.

Choi refers to his latest venture on the Las Vegas Strip as “a remixed and remastered collection of the evolution of Los Angeles.” From sweet to spicy, to finger-licking good, Best Friend is the hottest new place in Vegas.

The atmosphere is a twisted ‘90s hip hop theme and the food and music will make you feel like you are right at home with your best friend, Roy Choi.

Joel Robuchon

When you are craving the highest of the high end, Joel Robuchon’s unparalleled French restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip is the only place to visit.

The high-end atmosphere is quiet and intimate, even though it is located at the heart of the Vegas Strip in the flagship MGM Grand Hotel and Casino.

Luxurious and intimate, Joel Robuchon is traditional French cuisine perfected. In the words of Chef Joel Robuchon, “to make a grand meal, you have to make it simple.”

Face it, when you’re in Vegas you have to try a high-end restaurant and Joel Robuchon is as good as it gets.

 

Morimoto Las Vegas

Everyone loves sushi, but not everyone can get authentic Japanese sushi and seafood from the Iron Chef himself, Morimoto. This restaurant is pure Las Vegas.

Contemporary design and a luxurious atmosphere makes Morimoto’s flagship restaurant in the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino a part of the complete Vegas experience.

From an elegant sushi bar, to “buri-bop” cooked tableside, the Iron Chef’s restaurant will leave your mouth watering for more.

Cut

No one has to search very far to know the name Wolfgang Puck. The most celebrated chef who ever lived is back with a brand-new adventure for your taste buds.

Cut is the breathtaking restaurant by the grandfather of celebrity chefs, Wolfgang Puck, in the new Palazzo Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. This particular hot spot carries its own member rewards. So, unlike the M life Rewards members, the deals may not be as sweet, but we still recommend sinking your teeth into their ribeye.

Enjoy some of the finest food in the world with an intimate dive into the culinary mastery of Wolfgang Puck.

The Verdict

When visiting Las Vegas, the choices for top-quality cuisine are endless, but with the right guide and the right rewards membership, dining in Sin City is a piece of cake.

M life Rewards from MGM is the premier rewards program that can be used internationally around the world. A complete list of restaurants and rewards levels can be found on their various location websites and signing up to earn massive rewards is quick and easy.

It’s why Forbes called it the best hotel and dining rewards program on the planet. Sign up today and start earning cash every time you dine, play, or relax at an MGM resort.

Tips for Celebrating Christmas While Travelling

Published

on

Christmas is a wonderful time of year to spend with those closest to you and showing them how much you care. However, it can be really tough if you’re travelling away from home. Whether you’re backpacking and hostel hopping or living away in another country -Christmas doesn’t quite feel the same if you’re not at home. However, there’s plenty of things you can do to get into the spirit of things and enjoy your own celebrations.  

Video Call 

One of the most valuable things you can do if you’re away from your loved ones is to call them on Christmas Day. Make sure you establish a time which will work for the both of you as you will have to factor in the time differences. Even though you won’t be in the same country a video call means you can still spend part of the day celebrating together. You can use whichever app works for you. 

Posting Gifts

Just because you’re not in the same country over the holidays doesn’t mean you can’t send one another gifts. You could send your family and friends festive parcels. They could send you things you miss from home, and you could send them trinkets from the country you’re in. Photos and personalised cards are also a great addition to make the gift even more thoughtful. It’s important you use a reliable courier system – like Parcel2Go so your packages get there safely and in time for Christmas.  

Embrace the Experience

If you’re travelling to new places over Christmas, it gives you a great opportunity to do something different. You won’t get to do the normal family traditions so why try something completely new? This could be particularly special if you’re somewhere warm. You could spend Christmas Day on the beach, having a barbecue or swim in the ocean. There’ll be plenty more times with your family and loved ones. Embrace the adventure and see where the day takes you. 

Meet People 

No-one wants to be alone on Christmas. If you’re solo travelling, the thought of spending the whole day alone can be daunting. However, the wonderful thing about solo travel is you’re rarely by yourself. Get talking with people in the hostel, or whatever place you’re staying. You could arrange to do something together.  Or, why not research the place you’ll be in beforehand and see what events are being hosted? You could see what the locals are up to. There are so many possibilities and people waiting for you. 

Just because you’re away from home for Christmas, doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun celebrating it. Whatever you end up doing, you’re bound to create some unique memories for yourself. Do you have plans for Christmas celebrations while travelling?

Finding Culture in the Tourist Hotspot of Benidorm

Published

on

Benidorm is a popular holiday destination with UK families and it is easy to see why because it is an easy and affordable way to have a sun, sea and sand holiday. This does mean that Benidorm doesn’t have the best reputation if you are looking for culture, but there is another side to this sunny Spanish seaside resort which will give you an authentic Spanish experience.

Here are a few of the best things to do in Benidorm that will allow you to escape the crowd and find the hidden gems. 

Placa del Castell

The beautiful Placa del Castell is situated at the point of the promontory between the two beaches and it is perhaps the prettiest area in the resort. Featuring checkerboard tales and white balustrades, this is where Benidorm Castle previously sat but is now an idyllic spot with beautiful views and plenty of surroundings bars.

Old Town

Benidorm’s quaint Old Town feels almost like stepping back in time and can be a refreshing change of pace from the chaotic beaches. With twisting backstreets, whitewashed buildings and impressive architecture, Old Town is a charming place to explore on foot with plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars to visit along the way for an authentic Spanish experience.

Tapas Alley

Leading on from this, in the heart of Old Town is a small, covered alley called Calle Santo Domingo which is lined with inviting tapas bars. This is the best place to sample authentic Spanish cuisine in Benidorm and a chance to see how the locals live – try sampling some wine and tapas and sitting on the tables out in the alley where you can mingle and people watch.

L’Aiguera Park

This long Parkin neoclassical style separates the newer parts of Benidorm from the old and can be a nice place to visit if you are looking to relax and recharge. In addition to the lovely green areas, the park also features two amphitheaters which host a range of cultural shows to check out.

Getting Around

These are a few of the best cultural activities in Benidorm which will allow you to escape the hordes of families. Keep in mind that as such a busy place with tourists, it can be hard to get around which is why it is a good idea to book your transport in advance, including Benidorm transfers from the airport. 

Benidorm has a reputation as being somewhere cheap and cheerful for Brits to enjoy a sun, sea and sand holiday. While there certainly is this side of the Spanish seaside resort, there is also a more cultural, authentic and enjoyable side beneath the surface which is not to be missed and somewhere that allows you to see the real heart and soul of Benidorm.

Essential Things to Equip Yourself for the Perfect Camping Trip

Published

on

Camping has always been a popular way to take a trip. It can be done in so many ways from a family excursion with all the associated things you need to keep everyone, including children, happy to a solo trek going hiking and climbing in rough and remote terrain. But no matter what form of camping you are getting involved in you need some essential kit that’s important for everyone. 

Tent

Well, you need somewhere to sleep. So no matter what happens a tent is an essential part of the trip. So firstly it needs to be waterproof, and windproof. So although you can indeed pick up a cheap pop-up tent for a few dollars it’s likely that it won’t be up to the task. If you are taking the family then you can get large tents with several rooms and even a living area.  

Sleeping Bag & Mattress 

Next up you are going to need something to sleep in. So a sleeping bag is the first thing to consider. Sleeping bags are rated in two ways, by seasons, as in a four-season bag that will be suitable for spring, summer, autumn, and winter. They are also given a temperature rating, this is done via two values, a comfort value and a survival value, so the first temp, if it is 6 degrees you should be nice and comfortable at that level and then if it has a survival rating of -2 degrees you will survive but it wouldn’t be fun. Also, you will need a sleeping mat or a camping mattress as well.

Transport

You may be hiking and in that case, then you are your own transport. But if you are driving then you need to consider how to transport everything. Often the more space the better but there will always be decisions to be made so try and keep everything to essentially what is useful. You can even think about converting an old vehicle to turn it into a camping van, check out parkedinparadise.com for some great info and guides on how to achieve this. 

Cooking Equipment

Hungry? Of course you are! So we’re going to need cooking equipment. Camping stoves come in a variety of sizes, from a small single burner to a double burner with grill and even bigger barbecues, etc. You also will want to consider camp cookware rather than traditional pots, pans, and plates as the size and weight of the camping versions are designed to be as small and light as possible.

Camp Furniture

You are going to want to sit down and relax, so there is a whole range of camping furniture available these days. You can get everything from normal camp chairs to full inflatable sofas, armchairs and you can get camp kitchens and stores. You can get a fold-away picnic table and even separate pop-rooms to use away from the tents as well. 

So no matter how you do it be sure to enjoy your trip, make sure you have a checklist and bring everything as well.
