The Vegas Monte Christo

Before stocking up on supplies, you have to have a great breakfast. Thank-you City Search for pointing us to Maple Tree, a great spot that has my favorite – the Monte Christo sandwich. Their version has ham, turkey and swiss cheese. It's also deep fried, accompanied by a side of piping hot raspberry purée and fruit. I know what you're thinking... no bacon? Me too, so I ordered a side of the same. In summary, it was incredible. Crispy, not greasy, and nicely complimented by the raspberry purée.

Fusilli had incredible blue-crab cakes with hollandaise.  Cupcake had fluffy pancakes, scrambled eggs and bacon.
