Five days business trip in Las Vegas... healthy eating essential!

thankyou for the reply....
my fear would be if on the oatmeal quest he
would find it hard to resist the lure of sizzling
sausages and crispy bacon..... plus he is supposed
to be working and will be at a conference most of the time

Five days business trip in Las Vegas... healthy eating essential!

I know healthy and Vegas are not usually used in the same
sentence but here goes!

My husband has a business trip, he is staying at Ballys and has to keep to a healthy
eating plan due to medical problems... low carb, low fat etc
Any ideas close to Ballys, I dont want him to give up and give in to the buffet dinners!
Am telling him to get a microwave in room and stick to oatmeal for breakfast and then he
can always buy some healthfood frozen alternatives from supermarkets!
Please advise! Many thanks!!

Coming to LA from ITALY need Restaurant Recommendations: Steakhouses,Burgers and SUSHI

I would love to hear which places you go to try!
I hope you enjoy your stay here, I lived in Firenze for 2 years and, as am sure you will do, avoid the typical Italian/american style restaurants! They would make you cry!!
I still dream about the food in Italy, one of the only countries where young men discuss food with as much passion as they discuss women... well almost!!
Ciao

Agoura Hills help..

I ate at pookies last night...
delivery would have been better as the service has ground down hill all the way!
Food was also not up to par!
Char Fasl is one of my favourites too!
There was a mongolian bbq in the same mini mall as Exotic Thai which was packed a few nights ago!
I was trying out the new Persian take out place next to the persian market called 'Daar' (not sure of spelling but it in on T.O Blvd along from the Lassens mini mall and the Brit pub!

Agoura Hills help..

A new Indian place opened at Janss Mall off of Moorpark road!
Called Karma and newly opened.
They have a buffet daily and offer a la carte also
it was pretty good and the staff were really accommodating regarding the level of heat we wanted as the buffet was of medium spiciness. They made us a super spicy chicken dish which would knock your socks off!!
Definately worth a try and look forward to seeing your comments!!

Pookies Westlake Village

I was (past tense) a huge fan of Pookies but after last night I
doubt I will return....
The service, never too speedy and almost expected, surpassed itself by
being horrendous!
We ordered the food, it arrived haphazardly , we ate, it was not by any means up to the usual standard.
Pookie was running around seeming to do everything single handed, the other waiting staff were even more slow and surly than ever, the new girl was doing nothing.
I told her the toilet was blocked and if it was flushed it would over flow, she was totally disinterested.
Anything she was asked she was dismissive about. I think even Pookie had to deal with that blocked loo...
We had told Pookie it was my son's birthday and we waited for over 40 mins for a plate of fried banana with a candle on....
Coffee (instant) took 25 mins to arrive, my sons gave up and took to playing on their phones, my daughter had a melt down and it was a rather dismal evening!
Pookie needs to realize she needs to have some waiting staff to compliment her restaurant, none of the waiters seem to enjoy being there!
Really sad!
Oh, and we were overcharged by at least $30!!

Thai near to Westlake Village

I promised to take a friend to the Thai/Peruvian restaurant in Camarillo (the chain has one in Oxnard and Ventura too)
Before we go is there is there anywhere else other than of course pookies in the WLV Newbury Park area to try?
The Thai Peru place I went to last month and found all dishes tasted the same regardless of the country....quite ok but a bit heavy!
Thanks

Breakfast locations in Burbank

My husband has to meet a client in the Burbank area close to the 5 freeway, easy access as his client wants to drive off and meet and straight back on again, he is from 'out of state'....
I looked up hotels in the area but all looked a bit dodgy.... anyone know anything there, I know there must be something other than a Star$$s!!
Thankyou so much
this meeting might be a big lead so we can get a babysitter and go out to dinner more often!!
