I arrived in Las Vegas just about a week ago and was already able to visit various restaurants all thanks to Lipsmacking Foodie Tour!
After a fantastic trip to Houston, I continued my journey to Las Vegas, Nevada. This is where I will stay for the rest of October. Traveling around the US is always fun, and there is always something to do.
One of the things I did in Las Vegas was, of course, a food tour! Haha! You know, when you’re in the States, you should never miss exploring different restaurants! It’s a must – at least for a foodie like me. However, searching for the best restaurants around the area and visiting them yourself is time-consuming, isn’t it? Especially now that I want to maximize my stay in the US and balance my schedule as much as possible.
Well, it’s a good thing I came across Finger Licking Foodie Tour. They offer both guided and self-guided tours so you can pick which suits you best. I chose their Guided Lipsmacking Foodie Tour because of the services they offer. More of my experiences with them are below!

How I Enjoyed my Guided Lipsmacking Foodie Tour
Our meeting point was in Aria Hotel. From there, I met Donald, our tour guide for the day. There were 12 people in our group, and they brought us to 3 of the fanciest and nicest restaurants in the area – Javier’s, Julian Serrano, and Mastro’s Ocean Club.
Someone pre-ordered all their drinks, and you can just pay extra for the cocktails, but I only had water, so no problem with me. It all depends on you; how well does it sound?
The food in all these restaurants was excellent and looking at the menu prices, the cost of the food tour was totally worth it. Below are the meals we had that are associated with our Savors of the Strip Foodie Tour.
What To Order?
At Javier’s, you can enjoy their Mexican offers that will surely give you a fantastic experience. Lipsmacking Foodie Tours, let us enjoy 3 mouthwatering dishes here. They have their signature Fresh Tortilla chips served with 4 different salsas – Javier’s House Salsa, Roasts Tomato Salsa, Roasted Green, Tomatillo Salsa, and Salsa Verde Cruda.
You can also try their Enchiladas de Mariscos. This melted Monterey Jack cheese-covered baby is such a delight. The shrimp and crab that are sauteed in butter and different spices melt in your mouth! All the ingredients create a wonderful combination.
If you fancy Chicken, then why not try their Chicken Enchilada with Guajillo sauce. It is the same with the Enchiladas de Mariscos when it comes to other ingredients, but it uses Chicken as the main ingredient and is covered with Guajillo sauce.
Julian Serrano Tapas
Lipsmacking Foodie Tours also gave us the opportunity to try signature dishes from Julian Serrano Tapas. This Spanish restaurant offers a variety of Tapas; Tostada Menchega, Spanish Chicken Croquetas, and Albondigas. Their Arroz al Horno Paella was so good you’d definitely go back here!
The atmosphere here is also super elegant and classy, you will totally enjoy it with your group. It gives you an authentic experience and it made me miss Spain!
Mastro’s Ocean Club
At Mastro’s Ocean Club, our group was able to try their signature warm butter cake, cheesecake, and chocolate sin cake.
All these sweet delights are perfect for people who have a sweet tooth. The warm butter cake with its sweet cream cheese, house-made whipped cream, vanilla bean ice cream, and more delicious sauces is perfect after a full meal! Of course, you can also try the cheesecake and chocolate sin cake.
We also had steak, spinach, and burrata cheese. They’re all equally mouthwatering. There’s nothing more perfect than having a tasty dessert after a good full meal!
The tour is worth the money as it only costs $199 while you enjoy dishes in 3-4 restaurants. My stomach was definitely full on the 2nd stop, but it seems that I can’t say no to good food. We had started at 5 PM and ended at 8 PM. It’s really a good choice if you want to enjoy a night’s show in Vegas.
There are also other options if you want a brunch, lunch, or a trip downtown. Just imagine, you can have all these good meals in just a few hours without any hassle. All thanks to the Guided Lipsmacking Foodie Tour!
