Truffled Potato Chips at Wolfgang Puck Bar and Grill

A favorite off the small-plates menu, the truffled potato chips offer a decadent side dish in contrast with the restaurant’s light and airy fare. The house-made potato chips are freshly cut and fried at the restaurant, and infused with truffle oil. Maytag blue-cheese sauce—with tempting chunks of the cheese still visible—smothers the pile of chips, adding just the right creamy texture to complement the earthy truffle flavor. $11, in MGM Grand, 891-3000.

Down Mexico Way

By Max Jacobson

One common complaint I hear is how Vegas lacks quality Mexican food. But few of these people ever bother to check out mom-and-pop restaurants such as Los Antojos or Los Molcajetes, places serving creative and authentic dishes at absurdly low prices. Now, we can add to that list Los Jarochos, at the busy crossing of Rainbow and Tropicana, which could be the best of them all. Six of us feasted there for less than $90, and as I recall, I didn’t see a single one of my friends from nearby Spanish Trail in the restaurant.
