Mix | The Strip, Las Vegas NEVADA USA

Choosing somewhere to dine in Las Vegas is like sending me to Toys 'R' Us and saying “just get something fun”. Sure, it sounds easy but with so many options and so little time, where should we go?

After hours of research, Alain Ducasse's Mix located at Mandalay Bay was amongst a number of dining choices during our stay in Vegas.

The elegantly designed restaurant is accessed by a private elevator from the casino which after a quick checkin shoots you to the top level of the tower which instantly opens out to an exquisite view of the Vegas strip. The restaurant oozes class (well – it oozes Vegas class which is more playful and extravagant) and our table was set underneath the restaurant’s magnificent blown-glass chandelier and next to its floor-to-ceiling windows.

Our waiter was informative and extremely efficient (as one would expect from a celebrity chef restaurant) but what really left a lasting impression was the quality of the food. Now, I should let you know that we went into dinner at Mix knowing that we had expectations of ending our night with yet more food in the form of desserts at The Sugar Factory so we went for quantity and not quantity when ordering. I ordered the signature dish, Roasted Maine Lobster “AU Curry” ($49) which comes with a side of coconut basmati rice while the other bunnie when for a juicy piece of boneless ribeye prime steak ($46) with a side of miX Macaroni and cheese with ham ($9). So, where to start... The Lobster was sweet, moist and perfectly paired with the light curry sauce which in no way overpowered the beautiful flavour of the seafood. The steak was cooked perfectly medium-rare and the mac and cheese was the surprise of the night which surprisingly I and the other travel bunnie fought over finishing (seriously – there must be something a little more addictive than cheese in that stuff). All in all, the food was fantastic and the restaurant’s setting set us in the mood for speeding the rest of the night exploring the strip.

Total Bunnie Dollars Spend: $135 (including tips).
