On and Off the Strip: Uno Más, Lamaii and Doughp
On the Strip: Uno Más
Just in time for Cinco de Mayo celebrations, SLS Las Vegas has debuted a brand-new original Mexican culinary concept called Uno Más (702.761.7000), specializing in street-style tacos on freshly made corn tortillas as well as shareable authentic bites like queso fundido layered with chorizo and roasted poblano peppers and fried pork skin chicharrones served with bright and citrusy tomatillo salsa.
Open daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., this new offering is located near the hotel lobby adjacent to Northside Café & Chinese Kitchen, and it’s poised to become another foodie favorite at SLS alongside José Andrés’ Bazaar Meat and the Mediterranean hot spot Cleo.
A festive and casual dining space with a variety of seating options to accommodate any party, Uno Más captivates your tastebuds from your first sip of house-made margarita through many memorable bites of taco bliss, including braised lamb, fried chicken, beer-braised beef short rib, battered cod, pork belly, vegan meat, and cactus and mushroom. Uno más? Yes, please! –Brock Radke
Off the Strip: Lamaii
Lamaii (4480 Spring Mountain Road, 702.238.0567) is a contemporary play on Thai cuisine. The new Chinatown eatery offers familiar dishes from chef Bank Atcharawan’s previous restaurants, Chada Thai and Chada Street, but the steak tartare is a brand-new creation. Inspired by the northeastern region of Isaan, the dish uses diced filet mignon mixed with traditional spices, lime and fish sauce, dusted with rice powder. Its subtle spiciness is perfectly balanced by one of the sweeter whites in the restaurant’s stellar but affordable wine collection. –Rob Kachelriess
We’ve all indulged in the illicit thrill of raw cookie dough, but you haven’t had it like it’s done at Doughp (Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort, 702.550.2908), which removes the health hazard by omitting eggs and heat-treating the flour while whipping up 50-pound batches of dough daily. Select toppings including chocolate chips, candy and cookie pieces, sprinkles and sweet sauces, then watch as your server hand-mixes your treat and serves it up in a cup, waffle cone or a la mode. –C.
