Also the $777 burger.

Been to Habit and yes it's good. Didn't steal my heart like In-n-Out though.

$777 and a bunch of other things will be done when I hit Megabucks

Damn you guys have had like every burger in town. Glad to hear you preferred In-N-Out, no reason to go to Habit now.

I was thinking keno, Royal on VP or sports parlays but mega bucks is an option to fund $777 burger.

Sitrep:
Crushing Forbidden Dragons +20bb/100
Getting crushed in Aria's nitty texas -20bb/100



Sparkling wine is the new sklansky bux. One reason why these games are for nits.

A new day, a new scramble





Everything in balance - the eggs, bun and bacon. The sriracha mayo gives it a little kick but there's not too much of it to make it overpowering or messy (which was my only worry).

Eggslut is worth the fuss. The great country of Finland approves!

Getting sliced both at the tables and at Pin-Up Pizza



Eat what the locals eat. Rollin' Smoke!





Everybody's got their weak spots. These sbux croissant buns w/ ham, swiss & egg are just damn good.



And a mandatory poker update: up at least 5 bucks!

Here be dragons!



I've been dealt 3x AA and 3x KK today. And two of those KK were dealt back to back. Panda express fortune cookie wasn't lying last night.



But who cares about winning anyway, this is what matters:





Norman Chad once said in an ESPN stream that "you don't need to stop at In-N-Out every time you see one." He was wrong.

Have you been to the one over by the Linq? How bad are the prices compared to the one on Trop?

Double-double is about a buck more than other In n Outs. I would call that pretty reasonable for the strip. They could charge double their regular prices and people would pay it.

Re: TR: Burger Hunting in Vegas

Momofuku time!

Spicy cucumbers - Togarashi, almonds



Pork belly buns



Rotisserie Chicken & Fried Bones – Japanese curry rub, butter lettuce, bacon ranch



Sichuan Lamb Ribs – smashed cucumber, chili yogurt



Given the location, everything was reasonably priced and obviously good. The chicken especially had some interesting spices. We also had a cold noodle dish, Chilled Spicy Noodles – Sichuan sausage, Thai basil, candied cashew. That was the best one price-to-qualitywise.

Dessert: Fireball binge at Aria's Craps tables

Re: TR: Burger Hunting in Vegas

It is criminal to eat something else than only burgers. But i did it again. I did have a 3x3 for breakfast though, so please forgive me burger gods.

Taco y Taco in east Tropicana.





Two tacos, a tostada and a vampiro and that's that! Unbeatable prices and flavors.



Events of the day: Ice cream beauty pageant and $1 craps in Pahrump

Recent posts so solid, Momofuku and Taco Taco look great.

Also want to play some $1 craps in Parhump. What you guys doing in Parhump? on your way to Death Valley? If so hoped you stopped in town for more than some craps. Maybe a little half and half.

TR: Burger Hunting in Vegas

Yes we are alright. Quite an evening it was. We luckily happened to move to a downtown hotel from the Strip on Sunday afternoon. We just finished a dinner at Vic & Anthony's when someone told us that the **** had hit the fan. We obviously went straight to our rooms.

Because the reels seem to keep on spinning, we must keep on eating



Copper Martini with two olives



Oyster heaven



My dim pics are not worthy of the main, my second best ever piece of meat, 12oz filet mignon. (The best one was Allegro's ribeye 8 years ago but the surprise effect cannot be repeated).

One thing about this restaurant is their cheesecake. According to our cheesecake connoisseur it's the number one among the ones ever tasted, and i can't really disagree. One piece is enough for two or even three people, it's huge.

Would you buy a sandwich from this man?



I did! Pop's Cheesesteaks. Double cheese and onions Philly.



Trusting the fat man pays off.

And then a quiz: Where we at?



Okay everybody guessed already. Oyster heaven, or should i say Pan Roast heaven. Two hours to get in as usual.

But how spicy did you get it? Judging by the color, looks like a 4.

When I'm a good mood, I get a 7-8 but when I'm mad I get a 10 cause I need the extra salt from my tears.
