Every year, my boyfriend and I would make our annual (soon to be bi-annual) trip to Vegas. It always happened to coincide with our anniversary so it just gave us more reason to celebrate. Neither of us are big gamblers and I can’t drink. So we did what we did best: EAT!

Since we stayed at Mandalay Bay and The Hotel, we decided to try all the restaurants there.

Here are some of the highlights:

First stop, Strip Steak inside Mandalay Bay Hotel. The food wasn’t exactly memorable but the restaurant setting was nice. All my pictures ended up coming out blurry so here is my favorite part of the meal: our free dessert. Yay!

Next, we hit up Mix Restaurant at the top of The Hotel. BEAUTIFUL view, beautiful restaurant. The appetizers and desserts were amazing. Unfortunately the entrees left something to be desired. So close.

Easily the nicest restaurant decor I’ve ever seen.

Foie Gras in it’s purest form. It was my first time trying it and I fell in LOVE.

Mix Candy Bar. Rich chocolate and graham cracker piece with lime coconut sorbet. It complements each other so well. Glad we started and ended the night with such winners.

The view from Mix Lounge. Gorgeous

Our last stop was Fleur de Lys. I’ve been DYING to try this place for so long now. This was in my “Top 5 Places to Try” and now I can finally cross it off my list. It definitely lived up to the hype!

Truffle Onion Soup. Such an uppity name but it lived up to it so well! I was pretty appalled at the $20 price tag but the soup is definitely worth trying. Delicious!

Hands down, the best filet mignon I’ve ever had. Cooked to perfection; very tender and juicy. I was literally in awe and speechless.

Thanks to my dearest for another wonderful anniversary ­čÖé

Finally, my boyfriend is a HUGE (that’s an understatement) fan of musicals. It’s a shame I don’t share that same passion. Nonetheless, we went to watch The Lion King, which turned out to be pretty good. Plus, it was free so why not?
