Las Vegas; Caesar's Palace & Paris Las Vegas #3

Back to America, lovely readers! Caesars Palace is a very Romanian-themed hotel. It gives out a very strong Rome vibe from the moment you enter. The hotel even has a Trevi Fountain outside of the hotel. Just like the one in Rome. There is lots and lots of shopping merging with Caesars Palace. It's just so convenient for tourists, like us.

Don't you love the entrance already? Introducing our personal tour guide: Lydia 

More back in Romanian times

The escalator looks interesting, doesn't it?

We went for a ride HAHAH. We just can't hold back how excited we were. Good times, good times.

Isn't it just so classy, Romanian style?

Ended our fun in Caesars Palace with a group picture x

It was just in time for dinner when our fun ended. Next stop was Paris Las Vegas Hotel. 

Even Paris in Vegas, you can never miss out slot machines anywhere. 

Introducing the restaurant we dined in: Gordan Ramsay Steak. *screams inside till heart drops

It was full-house that night. At least we've made a booking prior to our arrival. Don't you just love the rows of shelves with the wine displays? They look so professional. It may look as if it's so crowded in there, but trust me, it's pretty spacious overall. 

Menu with the world famous Hell's Kitchen symbol.

We were escorted to our seats very politely. Service was simply amazing. We were very, very impressed. One of the staffs was explaining different parts of the meat has different types of tenderness. He even brought out a whole cart of samples, as if he was doing his college presentation. You may think 'yeah, not a biggie deal.' but it does make a difference. 

Selection of pastries to nibble on 

Too's appetizer, Kurobuta Pork Belly. Fun fact: Kurobuta means black pig translating from Japanese.

My main, Beef Short Ribs. It was just a simple short ribs braised with red wine, potato purée underneath accompanied by wild mushrooms. I personally think it was alright. The taste of red wine was so strong that it took over the tastes of the sides. The portion itself was pretty huge, took me quite an effort to finish it. 

Too's main, Roasted Chicken Breast. You might think, yeah it's just chicken breast. NO. It tasted nothing like chicken breast at all. The meat was so tender as if you're eating drumsticks from KFC but even better. The chicken meat had a crispy coat. The textures of both the skin and the meat blended so well together. It was as if they melt in your mouth together like Timon and Pumbaa.

Just in case you're wondering why I described this main as if it was mine. I was stealing his food throughout. Yes, I'm that annoying friend. Just at times. 

Lydia's main, Loup de Mer. It's less fancy name is Mediterranean sea bass. I haven't had much taste of this so I can't say much about it. As far as I'm concerned, she did enjoy her main very much. 

More of The Strips in the next few Vegas posts xx.

Lots of Love,
