Latest Vegas Dining Trends

    Mark Sandoval
Executive Chef Postrio

Always on the lookout for the hottest restaurants, ingredients and flavors, TravelsinTaste.com recently had the opportunity to chat with its resident garden fresh flavors expert Executive Chef Mark Sandoval of Wolfgang Puck's Postrio in the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino. Having worked at such notable restaurants as the award-winning Carneros, located at The Lodge at Sonoma, The Harmony Club on the Plaza, also in Sonoma, and Joel Robuchon's The Mansion in Las Vegas, Chef Sandoval is known for his focus on freshness. In fact, he even has his own garden and has been known to share the fruits of his harvest with his restaurant guests. Because of his love for garden-fresh produce, Chef Sandoval is always on the lookout for new, unique ingredients for his menus. When we want to know about new dining trends in Vegas, therefore, he's the first person we ask. And ask we did -- about the latest trend he's seeing in off-the-Strip dining: the gourmet food truck.

TravelsinTaste.com: What's the latest culinary trend you're seeing in Las Vegas?

Sandoval: One of the trends that I'm seeing now in Vegas is we have a lot of mobile food trucks. There seems to be a lot of people breaking into that market. They are on Twitter and Facebook and they'll let everyone know what location they are at. People go to that location specifically, and then they'll move. It seems to be a big trend in Vegas -- something that's growing more and more. There is a couple from the Tao Group, for instance, that has its own truck and is preparing Asian-inspired burgers that are almost like a White Castle size. They are not sliders, but they are kind of in between. They basically put together this concept and they are doing phenomenally well with it.
