8. Mi Casa at Silverton
Savor Las Vegas, Nevada’s best Mexican food at Mi Casa Grill Cantina at
Silverton Casino Hotel. Mi Casa serves up delicious Mexican border classics
and signature favorites — everything from spicy fajitas to tamales to ceviche.
Home to one of Vegas’ most extraordinary tequila menus; enjoy it all with
any one of the 65 tequilas served at Mi Casa.
I was very impressed with the authenticity of the interior of the restaurant.
I was more impressed by the food. At the time of our visit and due to other
restaurants being closed, the menu was very diversified.
Our server, Deontae, was very personable and provided us with attentive
service. The food was delicious. I loved Mi Casa’s version of chicken tortilla
soup. I ordered filet mignon and it was cooked to perfection. Dorene chose
Rancho del Sur as her entree. (NY steak, four jumbo grilled peppers,
onions, tabasco onions.) Mi Casa is truly a hidden gem and the prices are
very reasonable. I highly recommend making a visit.

Chef Jaimee Pepe has an entire menu of favorites at Twin Creeks, each with a unique story. But one of the most spectacular is the Grilled Caesar Salad, which has been described as a “masterpiece of flavors.”
The salad starts with hand-selected stalks of fresh romaine lettuce, which are lightly charred on the grilled to add a bit of smoky flavor. But that’s just the beginning. Smoked Parmesan cheese, which Chef smokes in her kitchen, is grated into a white balsamic vinaigrette, creating a dressing of contrasting flavors. The stalks are topped with charred avocado, white anchovies and a sweet-vinegary tomato tapenade. Forget about croutons — this salad is artfully sprinkled with a dust made from a homemade brioche.
“There is a creamy richness to all of this, with contrasting textures that hit all of your senses,” she said.
What is a tapenade?
Tapenade is a name for a spread, condiment and culinary ingredient consisting of puréed or finely chopped olives, capers, and anchovies. Although the word ‘tapenade’ comes from the French Provençal word for capers (‘tapenos’), today’s tapenades are more closely identified by their incorporation of olives. At Twin Creeks, the Grilled Caesars Salad includes a tomato tapenade, a sweet-vinegary addition to the salty and smoky notes of the salad.

Las Vegas Mexican Food Chef Antonio Martinez of Mi Casa is especially fond of the restaurant’s dessert menu, which offers several unexpected items that give a modern twist to traditional desserts.
The Churro Puffs are made from scratch and filled with banana and passion fruit cream. “This brings the perfect fusion of tropical fruit to the traditional sweetness of churro,” he said. “It is also topped with fresh raspberries that have been filled with mango passion fruit jelly.”
A second item — the Flotador de Helado — is the chef’s take on an ice cream float, infused with Mexican coffee, vanilla ice cream and topped with coffee granita-sweetened condensed milk.
What is Mexican Coffee?
In Mexico, cinnamon and sugar are often incorporated right into the coffee brewing process, and not merely added to the drink after brewing. The result is a coffee drink that’s sweet, spicy, and decadent at the same time, giving you a one of a kind coffee experience in a single cup. This Mexican coffee adds a welcome perk to the sweetness of the Flotador de Helado at Mi Casa.
Not only has Mi Casa been named the best Mexican restaurant in Las Vegas by readers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, it also has gotten top honors for “The Best Taco in Las Vegas” and “The Best Margarita in Las Vegas.” With desserts like these, too bad there isn’t a category for “Best Mexican Desserts in Las Vegas.”
This is the third in a series of posts that feature “under the radar” menu items at Silverton’s Las Vegas restaurants.
Chef Thierry Mai of WuHu Noodle serves an extensive menu from this modest fast-casual dining room. There is much to cheer about here, but one of the most “under the radar” items is the Roasted Duck.
This signature item is marinated overnight in a secret house seasoning blend, and slow-roasted in a special oven. The result is Peking perfection.
“For those who aren’t hungry enough to eat an entire duck, we offer the meat in several of our menu items,” said Chef Thierry. “For instance, the Peking Duck Folded Buns.” These popular starters combine roasted duck meat, microgreens, cucumbers and green onions in a freshly-steamed folded lotus bao bun.
What is Peking Duck?
Peking duck is one of the most celebrated dishes of Beijing or Mandarin Chinese cuisine that has been prepared since the Imperial era. It was once relegated to only emperors in the Forbidden City. The meat is sweet and savory, characterized by its thin, crispy skin. It is typically a delicacy dish or one used for celebrations.
WuHu Noodle brings you authentic Asian recipes and traditional favorites. Locals know that this is the place for noodles in Las Vegas, featuring authentic regional noodle dishes from all over Asia. It’s called one of the best Asian restaurants on Blue Diamond Road in Las Vegas.

Our chefs are big fans of the house-made buratta, which is served at Sundance Grill with grilled bread as an appetizer, and alongside fresh tomatoes and watermelon in the Caprese salad.
“While many restaurants out there might offer buratta, we actually make ours fresh in our kitchen,” said Chef Ashley Archer. “When you consider the volume that we serve, this speaks to the pride that we take into our work and being in true control of the final outcome.”
Chef Ashley is particularly proud of the “scratch kitchen” philosophy that he and his team live by. “Would it be easier to buy this product?” he asked. “Sure! But there is a true feeling of accomplishment when you take raw ingredients that are sourced from the best vendors. We take pride in knowing our buratta is better than any other that you might have tried.”
“It’s this particular road map that has allowed us to stand apart, while staying relevant to our guests as they join us on this culinary journey,” the chef said, with a twinkle in his eye.
What is buratta?
Burrata is a rich, creamy Italian cow’s milk cheese, with an exterior that resembles fresh mozzarella. But – surprise! – you’ll find an ooey, gooey mixture of cream and small cheese curds inside, with an delightful silky texture. It’s the perfect complement to crunchy, grilled bread, which is exactly how we serve it at Sundance.
Sundance Grill at Silverton Casino is one of the best Las Vegas restaurants. Specialties include country-fried steak and eggs, prime rib with creamy horseradish, towering pancake stacks and more. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, dinner or late night.
This is the first in a series of posts that feature “under the radar” menu items at Silverton restaurants.
With such an innovative menu, it took Chef Shayne Galan a moment to identify the most “under the radar” item on the menu at Silverton’s Su Casa sushi bar: the Uni Lobster Fried Rice.
This made-to-order item brings together traditional wok-fired fried rice, fresh lobster, egg-infused uni, and vegetables, and is topped with fresh uni.
“The savory fried rice, freshness of lobster and the creaminess of uni brings fireworks to your taste buds in every bite,” he said.
What is uni?
Pronounced ooh-knee in Japanese, it is known as a sea urchin in English. This exotic ingredient is a delicacy in Japan, where it is still considered to be an aphrodisiac. Often found on sushi, the thick, creamy, rich, and buttery texture of uni is experiencing a surge in popularity, and this umami-rich ingredient has recently been found on the menus of the trendiest restaurants.
The Uni Lobster Fried Rice is found on the Hot Plates menu at Su Casa, one of the best sushi restaurants in Las Vegas. Other “under the radar” items on the Las Vegas sushi menu include the Yakitori Chicken Skewers, the Miso-Glazed Seabass, and the Tuna Tataki.
