Los Antojos

The best dishes here are posted on the wall in Spanish. And many customers, like the owners, are transplanted natives of Mexico City. Don’t miss consome loco, chicken rice soup slow-simmered with cilantro and onions; pambazo, baked potatoes with sausage, lettuce, cream and Mexican cheese; or gordita with chicharron, a deep-fried corn cake split open and stuffed with fried pork skin.

Kobe Meatballs in Lettuce Cups, Sushi Roku

A recent addition to the menu, this dish offers perfect spheres of rich, ground Kobe beef on skewers with caramelized onions and mustard soy truffle sauce, and are meant to be eaten with the accompanying butter lettuce leaves. The combination of intense beefiness with the crunch from the lettuce, sweetness of the onions and umami of the dipping sauce is a study in well-balanced flavors. $18, Sushi Roku, in the Forum Shops at Caesars, 733-7373.
