Eat this now: Deviled eggs 2.0

Deviled eggs at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill

Bacon makes EVERYTHING better. Gordon is a smart man, which is why his version of the classic is chock-full of bacony goodness. His playful, interactive take — you spoon the deviled filling into the egg whites yourself — makes for a dish that’s as addictive as any I’ve recently had. You’re unlikely to find a better version anywhere in the valley. I know I certainly haven’t. Jim Begley

Garlic bento at Rice Trax Teriyaki grill

Rice Trax offers a variety of bentos — essentially Japanese boxed meals — with traditional Hawaiian ingredients. The most “local” of the bunch and my favorite is the garlic bento consisting of garlic chicken, teri beef and sweet potato tempura alongside two island favorites: Spam and a hot dog. Trade out the house salad for their outstanding mac salad and you’ll understand why Vegas is the Ninth Island. JB
