I spent a few weeks in Las Vegas and was able to try a variety of restaurants this time.  A friend of ours suggested we eat at Lindo Michoacan.  Since we come all the way from the West Side of the strip near Red Rock Mountain, this was quite far from us.  But as a foodie, I'm all for the adventure in food.

It looks like a chain in Las Vegas but it sure is better that their other counterparts.

Coming way West near Red Rock, the best way to do is get on Dessert Inn and it will take you straight through the strip without the traffic.

There were 4 of us and each of us ordered something different.
Above is the restaurant's interior.  The setting is quite charming.

My dish on the left had a wonderful pepper sauce.  It may look very typical Mexican food from typical Mexican restaurant, but I tell you the sauce was good!

Although they seem to look alike, their sauces are varied.

Above was the Pork dish and on the right is the Steak Tampiquena

The House

After a busy day of viewing Open Houses, I happened to be in the neighborhood to try The House.  It's a restaurant situated in a tiny red brick townhouse on 17th street just east of Union Square.  Since it was a bit late, I decided just to have a soup and a salad - something light and healthy.
The soup was outstanding!  Very light and fresh.  They make good soups.
My salad was extra ordinary with jicama and a very light dressing that complimented the delicate taste and texture of the vegetables that they combined which included micro-greens.

The House is a charming place to eat.  If you were just passing by, you would not notice that it is a restaurant.  It does not have a big sign indicating that it's a typical restaurant.  It appears to be small, but it does have a second floor.  And in the summer, there is outdoor sitting by the sidewalk.

This is an all year and all occasion type of restaurant to go to.  You get special food in a special place that you will remember.  Try it for the Holidays!
