Eggs Rolls from the Southwest
Café Americano, located at Caesars Palace (where Central used to be) features American food with a Latin twist, such as the Southwest Avocado Egg Roll. Made with roasted corn, black beans, red peppers, cilantro cream and salsa verde, the dish is a bright, new take on egg rolls. While there, try the Cuban sandwich and go for one or all four types of Bloody Marys – including one made with ceviche.
