A few weeks ago I blogged about our trip to Reno. Today I am playing catch up with more photos of memorable meals.
The original Mel's Diner at the Sands Regency offers some well executed "diner style" food. The little touches in the preparation make the difference. The side salad with iceberg lettuce comes crispy cold on a chilled plate. The bread for the sandwiches is buttered and toasted on the grill for a delicious crunch.

We checked out the Eldorado Hotel's Pho Mein for some noodles. If you can find the place secretly tucked away on the first floor of the casino you will be rewarded with some fine noodles.

Caution the red liquid in the small bowl is a very spicy dipping sauce for the shrimp. It is ill advised to think it is salad dressing on on the side.Yikes!
Last, but certainly not least we enjoyed Luciano's, Reno. We loved the pizza fritta appetizer special and the polenta with Gorgonzola and pine nuts so much I did not even think to unholster my trusty Nikon. We ravaged the food like zoo lions at feeding time. I did however capture this beautiful berry dessert before it was devoured.
