Street Foodie: Oakey Dokey
There’s good eating at Las Vegas Boulevard and Oakey — if you know where to look. Follow us!
Milkshake at Vickie’s Diner, $3.50
Sometimes you just want simple — and Vickie’s milkshakes are simplicity done right, in chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry. (If you’re feeling extra, make it a malted.)
Ribs at Viva as Arepas, $10
Sure, you’ve had the namesake corn-pancake sandwich, but have you tried the ribs? Smoky salty, sweet, with a distinctly South American spice. It’s my go-to.
Marlin Taco at Bajamar, $4
If you eat one thing on this list, it should be — must be — the Marlin Taco a Las Brasas: the smoked tuna with veggies and queso delivers an umami punch.
Cuban at Puerto Rico Express, $7.95
The three-meat Tripletta is king of this sandwich extravaganza of a menu. But that’s heavy, so I go for the easier-to-digest Cuban (above) and don’t feel I’ve missed a thing.
