CUISINE: Pastries, Chocolates, Crepes.
This patisserie is famous for the World’s Largest Chocolate Fountain. Yes, I was salivating.
I had a French Raspberry Macaroon with Rose Cream Filling... it was good, however I did find the macaroon to be dry. The macaroon didn't taste super fresh to me either. On the contrary, the rose cream filling was subtle and tasted floral.
The desserts here were certainly good, but I didn't think they were amazing besides the Carrot Cream Cheesecake. These desserts are definitely overpriced considering the little amount you are getting, but I suppose you are paying for the experience at The Bellagio. I would definitely try this place again eventhough the desserts are going to be hit or miss here, and it sucks paying $7 for a dessert that may be a let down. Albeit the crepes are amazing and you'll get to experience that luscious chocolate syrup from the fountain.
MENU: Julian Serrano Menu.
CUISINE: Spanish, Tapas
RECOMMENDED TO: Bar Scene, Couples, Groups, Romantic Dining.
Check out the décor at this gorgeous restaurant as you walk in…
We skipped drinks here and went straight for the tapas. The 3 of us split the Gambas which is sautéed shrimp. The shrimp was very tasty, but I've experienced slightly better shrimp, I felt as though there could have been more garlic. Regardless, this was very good and definitely something you should consider ordering.
Coca Vegetarian which is Spanish pizza with alioli, tomato, onion, and pisto. This was excellent! I'm not sure what was in the crust… it was perfect, light, cheesy, and so flavorful.
Quite honestly, I've never had Spanish Tapas before so dining here was a fun and amazing experience. I really enjoyed the food and every single dish was flavorful, fresh, and above average. In addition, I loved they had a Vegetarian section on the menu… this was great since I don’t eat red meat and Spanish food involves a lot of red meat. Loved it!
The service here was awesome and the tapas were brought out to the table as soon as they were prepared. It was nice that we were really enjoying our food with small breaks in between. In general, each person will require 2, or possibly 3 tapas, it all depends on how hungry you are.
Overall, a very exciting and fun dining experience at a beautiful restaurant. I'll definitely be going back to Julian Serrano.
After an early dinner, we headed back home and got ready all over again for our show at The Bellagio.
The 3 of us headed out to see “O” by Cirque du Soleil. I purchased my tickets on Ticketmaster.com.
Quite honestly, I didn't quite follow the storyline, yeah HAHA, however I do think the show was trying to depict heaven and hell. There were a ton of acrobatic performances which was my favorite part, and lots of special effects with water & fire. The pool was amazing and I loved those special effects, go see it to know what I'm talking about. I absolutely loved this generous 90 minute powerful performance and I believe you will leave “O” feeling moved, satisfied, and will get your money's worth. Definitely consider seeing "O" by Cirque du Soleil - it will be an unforgettable experience. Honestly, I was blown away!
We headed back to the Vdara, took a nap, and then ordered Room Service. Why were we always so hungry on this trip? I'm not sure if it was the heat and walking around that made us hungry, or are we just pigs?
After freshening up a 3rd time, we headed out to XS Nightclub at Encore.
XS is one of the hottest new clubs in Vegas which has an indoor and outdoor party. They played a lot of current music mixed in with electronic beats.
The crowd at XS is HOTTTTT! Most women here look ridiculously gorgeous wearing 4+ inch stiletto heels, and others looked good leaving very little to the imagination. Well, you get the idea. You will sense some attitude here so should you try to get in this club, I strongly suggest you look your best and try to fit in with what appears to be the "Vegas Norm" - a hot dress, high heels, fix up your hair, and flawless makeup! Of course, however you dress, be comfortable, be yourself, and most importantly have fun.
