Falafel Pita Sandwich at Sababa

The owner of Sababa, Rami Cohen, greets newcomers with a free falafel that has been dipped into hummus, and he tells them that his is the best falafel in Las Vegas. For each order, ground chickpeas are shaped into a ball, dropped into the fryer and tucked into warm pita that has been insulated with a healthy smear of hummus. Additional toppings such as pickles, salad and tomatoes are up to you, but be wary of Sababa’s hot sauce. A blend of herbs, garlic and chilies, this boldly flavored condiment will knock the socks off even the most hard-core of spice freaks. $7, 3220 S. Durango Drive, 547-5556.

Risotto Aragosta e Tartufo at Ferraro’s

Ferraro’s recipes come straight from chef Mimmo Ferraro’s Italian upbringing, and everything is made fresh daily. While the whole Valley knows the osso buco is delicious, another dish on the menu caught our eye, the risotto aragosta e tartufo (lobster and truffles). Traditional Italian rice is cooked with fresh lobster meat, truffles and mascarpone cheese, and drizzled with truffle oil. It’s authentic and creamy and you definitely won’t find it at Olive Garden. $36, 4480 Paradise Road, 364-5300.
