I have a confession. Sometimes we go to restaurants that are not particularly kid-friendly…and we bring our kid. We often walk to our table while receiving skeptical looks from other diners. And we’re cool with that. We know our daughter, and we know that if we come prepared with something to keep her occupied while we wait for our food, she’ll be just fine.
We also know that she’s an adventurous eater for her age. I can’t tell you how many waitresses have looked on in disbelief as E. has gobbled up Chicken Tikka Masala or excitedly declared, “YES! Mushrooms! Yum!” upon seeing her food.
During our recent trip to Las Vegas, we ate at Shanghai Lilly at Mandalay Bay. We went early to avoid crowds. This is not a restaurant that typically caters to families; no kids’ menu here!
We shared three dishes: honey sesame chicken, kung pao chicken, and tofu and vegetables.
E. loved the kung pao chicken (which I wish had been spicier) and the tofu and vegetables.
I’m no expert when it comes to food, but I love trying new restaurants and showing off pictures of our culinary adventures. If you want to check out foodie adventures from Texans who really know their stuff, stop by Defining Delicious and San Antonio Food Nazi.
