Mon Ami Gabi
3655 Las Vegas Blvd. South
Las Vegas, NV 89109
Mon Ami Gabi is located by the base of the Eiffel Tower in Las Vegas. We had heard great things about their Sunday brunch and so we made a reservation. Unfortuantely the patio had a super long wait so we settled for the sun room which was the best of both worlds, air-conditioned room with huge windows letting all the sunlight in.
There were so many people at this place when we arrived. I’m so glad we made a reservation. Eating ndoors along the windows was nice cuz then you don’t get pedestrians stopping and gawking at your food.
We started off with some delicious fresh French bread, hot from the oven. too bad the butter was frozen solid.
I needed some caffeine to start off my day and so I got a cafe au lait, some delicious French press coffee with steamed milk. Made me feel like I was at a nice little French bistro, sipping on my drink.
The French onion soup was delicious. Loved the melted gruyere cheese and brioche bread on top. I think caramelized onions is one of my most favorite flavors in the world. I noticed that almost every table here at at least one bowl of this soup and when I began to devour mine, I knew why.
Joe ordered the eggs benedict because the breakfast menu is pretty well known at this restaurant. I liked that the hollandaise sauce wasn’t so thick and heavy like most egg yolk and butter based sauces (anyone else think of Julia Child when you hear those combinations?)
I had the sandwich of the day which happened to be duck breast, bacon, lettuce (I opted for no tomatoes cuz I don’t like how tomatoes make my bread soggy), with citrus spicy mayo. The duck breast was tender and juicy and the bacon was cooked rock hard (I love crunchy bacon).
I love these things, it’s like the love child of french fries and chips. The slices of potato were so thin and crispy. I asked for some of the citrus spicy mayo and dipped the fries in it, it was heavenly!
