Are you type of person that always says yes when the waiter asks “did you save room for dessert?” Then this blog is for you. One of the best things about living in Henderson is the proximity — just 20 minutes to the Strip— to all the great restaurants Vegas has to offer. Thankfully, there are a lot of desserts to choose from. Get your sweet tooth ready because we have 12 must-eat desserts in Vegas.
The Carib at Sweets Ragu
An extension of the popular Japanese restaurant, Raku, Sweets Raku serves up Japanese-French-style dessert akin to modern art. The must-eat dessert to get here is the “carib.” This dessert has a delightful presentation; the coconut pannacotta dessert with tropical flavors like melon sorbet and brûléed bananas is served in a wine glass. The final touch? A warm mango sauce drizzled over a disk of white-chocolate the rests on the wine glass’s rim. The chocolate slowly melts and incorporates with the mango sauce into the glass. The flavors are meant to melt together and form a tasty masterpiece.
We recommend sitting at the bar so you can watch as the chefs work hard to craft your dessert; it’s truly an art form. Oh, and one last thing: their menu is edible.
Honey Toast at Is Sweet
A dessert popular in Asian countries like Japan and Taiwan is honey toast. Also known as honey bread, the dessert is made from the milk bread — a soft and springy bread —, honey, butter, and various additional toppings. Is Sweet‘s honey toast is served warm and crispy on the outside. One Yelp reviewer has gone as far as to say that their honey toast “is what heaven must taste like.”
At Is Sweet, you can experience the taste of honey toast customized to your liking. Guests can choose add-ons like green tea ice cream, brownies, Nutella, and fruit. The honey toast at Is Sweet is made to order, so be prepared for the 20-minute wait.
Cream Puffs at SUZUYA Patisserie
No, you don’t have to travel to France for a fantastic cream puff. At SUZUYA Patisserie in Las Vegas, they serve up their beloved cream puffs in a variety of flavors. Choose from a chocolate cream-filled and drizzled cream puff, a strawberry cream puff, a green tea cream puff, an anko — a Japanese sweet red bean — cream puff, or a custard cream puff.
In addition to their cream puffs, SUZUYA serves up a full menu of desserts like cheesecake, French macarons, mille-crepe cakes, and more. Arrive early: their desserts sell out fast.
The Tasting Game at RM Seafood
If you’re looking for the perfect date night activity, take your special someone to Mandalay Bay’s RM Seafood and order the “tasting game.” The waiter will bring out 16 colorful ice creams and a paper to write your guesses. The waiter will reveal the flavors and let you know how many you got correct.
Lemon Ricotta Cookies at Giada
At Giada, the lemon spaghetti, orzo meatballs, and lobster ravioli are excellent options when you’re wanting something savory. When the sweet tooth hits, the lemon ricotta cookies at Giada are the way to go. The ricotta adds a creaminess and the sharp lemon adds the perfect balance to the lemon sugar glaze on top.
24-Layer Chocolate Cake at Strip House Steak House
Strip House‘s signature 24-layer chocolate cake is decadence at its finest. Thin layers of cake are sandwiched between chocolate ganache. Priced at $18, the price is nothing to sneeze at. However, the serving size is large so you can easily share. Or, forget about calories for a few minutes and indulge.
Sticky Toffee Pudding at Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen
Having opened up earlier this year, the much anticipated Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen has lived up to the hype. While the beef wellington and lobster risotto are two fan-favorite entrees, the sticky toffee pudding is the star of the dessert menu. For this dessert, plan weeks — and sometimes months — in advance, the acclaimed restaurant is still new so reservations are a must.
The Giant Fortune Cookie at TAO Asian Bistro
If you’re wanting a dessert that is equal parts charming and delicious, go to TAO Asian Bistro and order the giant fortune cookie. Unlike a typical fortune cookie, this one is filled with vanilla and chocolate mousse, served with fruit to add some tartness, and finished with an entertaining fortune.
Red Velvet Cupcake at the Sprinkles Cupcake ATM
If you haven’t done it already, getting a cupcake from the Sprinkles Cupcake ATM is a Las Vegas must. It’s perfect for when the dessert craving kick in and your favorite bakeries have closed for the day. You can’t go wrong with one their specialty; the red velvet.
Sweet Potato Donut at STK Las Vegas
Here are two things you didn’t think went together: a sweet potato and donut. At STK Las Vegas, inside the Cosmopolitan, they serve up sweet potato donuts that are topped with a maple glaze and candied pecans. After one bite you’ll understand why some people visit the restaurant purely for their signature donuts.
Banana Cream Pie at Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House
After taking your first bite of Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House‘s banana cream pie it will taste like a “bam” in your mouth — we’re sorry, we just couldn’t resist. This beloved dessert is served with chocolate shavings and a caramel sauce. Plus, it was featured on an episode of the Food Network’s “Best Thing I Ever Ate.”
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Martini at The Chocolate Bar
