The Best Mexican Restaurants in Las Vegas
Milpa serves food that's easy, quick, and convenient, but don't confuse it with fast food. No heavy sauces or greasy meat here. Instead, the focus is on ultra-fresh produce and premium ingredients, including stone-ground masa tortillas. "Bowls" are served with nuts and savory additions like roasted corn, warm chickpeas, lentils, brown rice, and/or quinoa. Tacos come with charred grilled chicken, spicy short rib, or roasted cauliflower, with additional ingredients on the side. Some assembly required. Milpa opened during the pandemic; not quite as a ghost kitchen, but with a heavy emphasis on takeout orders. The modern but minimalist dining room is starting to generate traffic, especially on Tuesday nights when guest chefs are invited for pop-up tastings.
