| Night + Market

In a city like Las Vegas, lunch is essential. It could be a heaping plate of eggs, a street taco smorgasbord, Okinawa onigiri, or a warming bowl of pasta with a glass of wine, but whatever the impulse, it’s worth stopping to take a midday meal. Whether you’re sunbathing at a day club or exploring the city on foot, you’ll need the fuel.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission.

1130 S Casino Center Blvd #170
Las Vegas, NV 89104
(725) 251-3853
Visit Website

Vegans and meat-eaters alike flock to Tacotarian for its plant-based menu of Mexican specialties. Got for seitan versions of carne asada or al pastor, a take on a Baja-style fish taco that subs fried avocado for fish, or even a birria platter complete with broth for dipping.

2. Tacos El Gordo

3041 S Las Vegas Blvd
Las Vegas, NV 89109
(702) 331-1160
Visit Website

Tacos el Gordo has two Vegas-area locations. The Strip location often has a line, but it’s worth it for Tijuana-style tacos stuffed with juicy chorizo, suadero, adobada, and more.

3. O.Onigiri

Copy Link
4258 Spring Mountain Rd #102
Las Vegas, NV 89102
(702) 844-8857

O.Onigiri does open-face Okinawa onigiri, a rice-wrapped snack stuffed with spam, egg, teriyaki sauce, and pretty much whatever else you can dream up. The soft shell crab onigiri is popular, or try the curry chicken katsu version with a potato croquette for an off-menu treat.
