Being Irish born I love a full Irish breakfast and it can be hard to find one that is like the real thing.
I do believe you can find anything that your stomach desires here in Las Vegas.
There is an Irish pub Ri Ra in Mandalay Bay Casino, which I just discovered, is part of a chain.
The name loosely translates as hubbub or uproar.
We went for breakfast last Monday after our overnight stay at New York New York where we attended a performance of Cirque du Soleil's Zumanity.
The full Irish breakfast lived up to my expectations except for the white pudding which wasn't as spicy as I would like. The black pudding was delicious, the sausages fantastic and the ham, the ham!! All washed down with a perfect pint of Guinness!!!!

Ah, that makes me "homesick" for Ireland. We traveled there last year and now I'm missing breakfast!ReplyDelete
Looking at that breakfast takes me right back to our trip to Ireland- thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Sounds wonderful! I could have that guinness if I had some coffee first. :)ReplyDelete
Now I'm craving my local Irish pub! The Half Door. I love it--lots of live music & good pub food. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
There's a Ri Ra right here in Arlington, VA, about 2 miles from my place. I've never thought of going there for breakfast or brunch - maybe I should! Your meal looks delicious and filling. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
That looks like my calorie count for a day or two, but I did enjoy some satisfying breakfasts when traveling in Ireland in younger days, when the metabolism was a bit friskier.ReplyDelete
