While walking the outskirts of the mall, the hungry ferret stumbled upon the architecture of the Venetian in Las Vegas.  Has style of Vegas come to Long Island?  The Hungry Ferret is up to investigating on this gamble.  Lets roll the dice and see if the Hungry Ferret is in favor of Lady Luck.

The drinks at the Grand Lux Cafe are well mixed and did not taste like it came from a soda  fountain or a premix powder.  The lemonade was crisp and refreshing.

The appetizer was the Mini Kobe Hot Dogs with chili and cheese.  The buns were toasted and very buttery, the hot dog meat had a higher quality meat taste than the usual hot dog.  But as a warning, it is a hot dog, don’t expect it to taste like a kobe steak.

First entree was the Spicy Ranchero Steak with Spanish rice and salsa.  The skirt steak was done medium as request, very spicy and tangy.  It had the nice beef flavor and texture of a skirt steak.  The rice was a bit hard and not as good as I would expected.  It might have been sitting in the warmer/oven too long.

Next was the Luncheon Omelette with Ham, Bacon and Mushrooms with fries on the side.  Generally the omelet was not bad.  It had a slight “fake egg” taste to it.  It was possible that the egg was cooked with pre scrambled eggs from a container or mixed with too much water / cream.

The ending of the meal was with a pineapple upside down cake with ice cream.  It had to be ordered close to 20 minutes ahead of time because of its make to order status.   It came hot and steaming with goodness.  There was very nice flavors of pineapple sweetness in the cake.   The macadamia nuts and brittle was a nice complement to the desert.
