Rick’s Rollin’ Smoke BBQ & Tavern is the perfect example of what a BBQ joint and tavern should be. Plus, there’s also the chance that you’ll bump into some of the stars of the History Channel’s Pawn Stars! The Gold & Silver Pawn Shop featured in the series is a just a wee-bit south of this tavern. The bar features 16 local brews of beer on tap, as well as a tasty mix of southern cocktails. Try the ribs! They’re simply incredible! The BBQ sauce is as good as or better than the best of homemade sauces! I just wish they bottled it and sold it, too. Rick’s Rollin’ Smoke BBQ is the best BBQ joint I’ve ever been to – amazing! Visit Rick’s at 725 Las Vegas Blvd S Suite 110. $$ 2. Lotus of Siam. I have been here MANY times with our friends from Facilis Technology. Their Northern Thai Cuisine is KILLER! Crispy duck… deep-fried prawns… the full menu will not only surprise you, but will also definitely make choosing a nearly impossible task! It comes off as a mom-and-pop restaurant – but it’s always a blast and you can seat MANY people at the same table. And oh – they have WINE! All of the dif- ferent combinations of foods and wines themselves explain why I’ve been here so often – without having eaten the exact same combo twice! They are located at 953 E. Sahara Ave. $$ 3. The Herringbone Las Vegas features amazing seafood you must eat to believe. This restau- rant was inspired by the coastal cuisine of California – it’s Brian Malarkey (a Top Chef alum)’s second Vegas res- taurant, replacing the Gold Lounge at Aria. Pure seafood combines with local responsible sourced meats to honor the guilt free “fish-meats-field” theme, followed by its two sister locations in California. Chef Geno Bernardo expertly brings the flavors to you, while Chef Malarkey’s design brings the atmosphere. Get some of that amazing seafood at 3730 Las Vegas Blvd S, Aria Resort & Casino. $$$ Las Vegas has the very best food and drink from around the world in one city! Everything from comfort food to fine dining is at your fingertips. Everyone loves pizza. At Pizza Rock, eleven-time pizza world cham- pion Tony Gemignani brings with him six styles of pizza including Neapolitan, classic Italian, classic American, Sicilian, Roman and gluten-free pies. And did I mention a big rig serves as a deejay booth at this downtown joint? Check out this gem at 201 N 3rd St. $$ 5. Flock & Fowl serves Hainanese Chicken Rice either alone or with 3 different varieties of chicken- based meals. Prices are on par with fast food restaurants. Chicken wings (Thai Caramel-Garlic), and a few other options round out the menu. Tasty, especially for the price. I have a feeling that this will be like most street-ven- dor food when I cover Broadcast: ASIA later this year… $$ 6. 4. Broadcast Beat Magazine • • 27
