GGG Restaurant Review: Serendipty 3

Hi lovelies! I hope that you all had a great Monday and that your week is off to a fantastic start. I’ll admit, it was a little hard going back to reality after such a wonderful weekend away! But now I’m back in the swing of things, I’m looking forward to some fun things happening this week and weekend. My personal rule of thumb is that whenever something you were looking forward to is over, make sure you have something else fun planned!

Besides some great breakfasts we had in our room (more on that later) most of our meals were spent dining out in Vegas. We ate at some great new-to-me restaurants, but visiting Serendipity while in Vegas was a “must” on my list. After seeing the movie Serendipity years ago, I became in love with the prospect of visiting the famous restaurant with the frozen hot chocolates. A few years ago on my first trip to New York my family made sure that I got to experience it, and it was just as amazing as I had hoped.

Based on my attire you can tell this is at the New York location in the winter!

So it only seemed right that we all venture back to the one in Vegas, this time so my Grandma could experience it. If you haven’t had frozen hot chocolate, it is a little difficult to understand the draw. But imagine a cross between a chocolate milkshake and a chocolate slushie with whipped cream piled on top. Or imagine pure bliss. It’s kind of like that. We all went for the frozen hot chocolate, but as it was lunchtime, we knew that we needed to have some real food too.

My mom and I weren’t very hungry as we wanted to save room for the main event, we split the fresh berries, yogurt and granola. Since I’m mildly obsessed with this combo (I have it every single day at work) I thought I knew what to expect. And then this arrived…

Now that’s what I call presentation! The yogurt inside the coconut was delicious and the berries were perfectly fresh and sweet. I have never had white raspberries before either, but am definitely a fan.

Daddy Jeff ordered the Chopped Chicken Salad which he said was delicious and my Grandma had the chicken strips which were pretty incredible and served with 3 dipping sauces.

But all of that was just filler before the much awaited frozen hot chocolates. I can tell you that from the time these were delivered to the table until we got up to leave, the only words I uttered were versions of “This is SO good”. It was even better than I remembered and truly unlike anything else I’ve ever had. We ordered the mochacino and the regular and as much as I love coffee-flavored desserts, the regular is still my favorite. I indulged to my heart’s content  because I think this was one of those times where calories don’t count, and you just enjoy food for what it is. I tend to feel that way on vacation anyway, but especially for things like this where you can only get it at these special locations.

Questions:

-What’s the best dessert you’ve ever had?

-How do you approach indulging on vacation?

Sneak Peek

Hi lovelies! I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend and for those in California, enjoyed the absolutely gorgeous weather! As you know, I was in Vegas this weekend celebrating my Grandma’s 87th birthday. It was a PERFECT weekend and we had an incredible time. My Grandma said that it was “more amazing then she could have dreamed!” I had a huge surprise as well, as my brother who lives in Texas came too! It was so wonderful to be all together and I was so excited that he came. Since it’s been such a busy weekend I just wanted to check in and share with you a few pics but a full-recap and some great restaurant reviews are to come!

Super excited action shot!

Questions:

-Give me a sneak peek of your weekend!

-What was your last surprise?

Viva

Hi lovelies! I hope that you all had a great week and are having a wonderful Friday so far. I just finished packing (and it’s already past midnight) so today’s post is going to be short.

Today I’m taking off for a weekend in, you guessed it Vegas! But this trip will look less like this…

And more like this…

(And yes, the above is one of our photo shoot pictures… more to come soon!)

That’s right, this weekend is my Grandma’s 87th birthday! We are surprising her and taking her to Vegas for the weekend. Not only has she not been on a plane in years, but she’s never been to Vegas. We’re going to take her on a little tour around the world (Venice, Paris, New York) and then surprise her again and take her to see the Donny and Marie show. I’m so excited to experience Vegas with my Grandma and family. It is going to be so much fun and something we’ve been planning for a very long time! I’ll be sure to post a full recap of the trip and our delicious eats next week!

Have an amazing weekend!

-Have you been to Vegas? Any favorite restaurants/activities?
