La Gloria

I've already sung praises for the frozen prickly pear margarita at La Gloria in the Forum food court at Caesars Palace. I've had quite a few since and I'm happy to report, they are still delicious! I'm pretty sure I've got my sister hooked on them too. I've tried it on the rocks, but the frozen is better. Recently, they reduced the prices so you can save a few bucks. Even better!!

After a few stops solely for margaritas, we finally had an appetite so we were eager to try more of the menu. La Gloria hails from San Antonio and specializes in Mexican street foods, expect smaller portions, but there is value (considering you're center strip). You get three tacos to an order for just under $10. We weren't able to resist the chips and guacamole, dorados de pollo or baja fish tacos.

The guacamole is fresh and flavorful, we enjoyed it. Just a quick tip, don't bother with the chips & salsa, since you can try the salsas from the bar. The dorados tacos were filled with seasoned chicken and fried crisp, and then topped with robust tomatillo sauce and crema, we gobbled those up. The fish tacos were less exciting, I found them a bit bland even with the chipotle crema. I wouldn't get them again, but there's plenty else to choose from. I hear the ceviches are quite good so I'll have to try those in the future.

The eats didn't knock my socks off like the margaritas do, but it's a fine choice. It's quick bite, that's also affordable and tasty.

The food court seems to do really well. Smashburger kills it. Earl of Sandwich doesn't seem to do as well there as Planet Hollywood. Enjoy.
