We are heading to Vegas in the next few weeks. Does anyone know of any good places to eat that are somewhat near the strip? We plan on checking out places at The Wynn & Encore, and a couple more that escape me now. We'll be there for five days do we need ideas! Thanks.

I've never been to Vegas, but if I ever go I'd make a beeline for Ronald's doughnuts.

I went a few times last year. I only ended up going to the Wynn once and decided to splurge on a vegan prix fixe menu at one of the restaurants, which was really good (and like all food on the strip in Vegas, really expensive). Roland's Donuts is a trip. They have a ridiculous amount of vegan doughnuts there, but all the patrons seem to be locals and truckers. Nothing's labelled, so you have to ask which are the vegan doughnuts, but if I remember correctly, it's the top two rows. I could only bring myself to buy 3 of them, but it was hard to not just say "One of each, please!"

I had breakfast at the Canyon Ranch in the Venetian a few times - that wasn't bad. And the Whole Foods just south of the strip has the best vegan selection of any Whole Foods I've ever been to. They have a separate vegan hot bar and their deli case had an absurd amount of vegan options. Even a lot of things I see at other Whole Foods nationwide which are almost vegan have been modified to not have honey, cheese, etc. I also had breakfast at a vegan place a bit off the strip, but I'm blanking on the name. I had a four (or five) course breakfast there. (Yes, I pigged out on the trip. I figured I made up for it by running a half marathon while I was there.)

Just thought of one more thing. There's a Vosges chocolate store in Caesar's Palace that has some pretty amazing drinking chocolate which you can have made with soy milk or almond milk.
