This week, try tacos from TJ, Las Vegas’ all-you-can-eat sushi crazy gets an upgrade and Makers & Finders debuts new menus.

Tacos El Cabrón


A San Diego staple, Tacos El Cabrón is now opening multiple locations in Las Vegas serving Tijuana-inspired Mexican cuisine. Their first store on Maryland Parkway features a menu of street tacos, street corn, burritos, bowls and specialty dishes. The second location will debut at Resorts World this summer. Don’t miss the spicy shrimp and crispy dish tacos, birria—or beef stew tacos,surf and turf fries with spicy shrimp and carne asada and much more. Plus, they have a great patio for these good weather days.


Sushi Ichiban


AYCE sushi is all the rage and there is a new player in Downtown Las Vegas. Sushi Ichiban is now adjacent to the El Cortez Hotel & Casino. The space is located at the base of the Emergency Arts building and the all-you-can-eat menu is $27.95 per person. Tasty appetizers include coconut shrimp, bacon and rice cake and cucumber salad with crab meat—but those who know come for the fresh sushi including uni, scallops, yellowtail, red snapper and more, along with specialty rolls.

Favorite rolls are the Jackpot Roll with shrimp tempura and cucumber topped with shrimp, spicy crab meat, crunch eel and spicy yum sauce; and the Red Rock Roll with spicy yellowtail and cucumber topped with tuna, avocado and spicy garlic ponzu sauce. Sushi Ichiban is open Monday through Thursday 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday through Sunday, 12 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Makers & Finders


Latin kitchen and coffee shop Makers & Finders unveils new menus at both of its locations. The Arts District shop switched over its offerings April 5 with Downtown Summerlin to follow on April 12. There are all-new items for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert—plus dessert cocktails created by CEO Josh Molina, Executive Chef Kenneth Taylor III and Beverage Specialist Jared Uy.

Don’t miss the Breakfast Empanada Skillet featuring two breakfast empanadas filled with chorizo, eggs, potatoes and cheddar cheese, served with rice, beans and avocado, house sauce and queso fresco; and the Ranchero Burger comes with a 7-ounce patty, rajas, caramelized onions, black beans, sunny side egg, crispy pork belly, cilantro lime crema and queso fresco inside a toasted brioche bun.


For dessert, standouts include the Rosé Tres Leches with a Chiffon sponge cake soaked in a rosé-infused coconut milk, Italian meringue and assorted fruits; and Vegan Espresso Flan with coconut milk flan, espresso caramel, assorted fruits and coconut whipped cream. New to the dessert cocktails menu is the Lavender Sorbet Spritz, prepared tableside cocktail with Martini Fiero, Martini Rossi Prosecco, lavender and coconut sorbets and lemon juice. Makers & Finders is known for its extensive vegan and plant-based menu as well as its modern Latin Dishes.
