We, here at B-t-B, are notorious at sniffing out where the bars are, *cue 1960′s beach party music* so the first time we went to Mundo was the day after Winter Market. The menu was limited but the wait staff, despite feeding 30,000 hungry designers & buyers, was fast and service was impeccable.
So what better place to take this mom for Mother’s Day: From the moment we sat down, my bottomless drink stayed filled as if it was some magical cup. I had the chicken satay, flavored Latin style and the Benedict Mexicano, a rich offering of jalepeno cornbread, poached egg slathered in pork carnitas simmered in a green chile hollandaise.
Of course no meal is complete without dessert with cafe con leche and a shot of tequila. We indulged in all. And just not to let down my family, I also raised a glass of Sangria to the matriarch of my son’s mestizo side of the family. Cheers to Chela.
Even if it isn’t market week and you are in town for a propane convention, it is well worth the 10$ cab ride from mid strip to the WMC just for Munco. However go to Open Table and make a reservation 1st as they are always busy even when it isn’t serving the HGTV crew.
If you have some time to spend, directly across from the WMC is the Smith Center for Performing Arts, the newest inclusion into revamping the downtown area of Las Vegas. On the corner is the Lou Ruvo Brain Institute which is housed in a Frank Gehry design building. It might be noted that it gives my brain a work out just looking at it. If you come during the day, you can browse the showrooms at WMC or if you are looking for shopping, it is right next to the North strip version of the Premium outlets. All within walking distance. Don’t forget your water.
