Las Vegas: Island Breeze (revisited)

Saimen w/ spam
Island fusion wrap
Ahi poke with kim chi
 
Malasada
 
Originally, I wanted to go outlet shopping for a new purse. I'm thinking all of Las Vegas was doing the same as all the parking garages and even the valet was full.

Ok, plan B: Let's chase a food truck. Island Breeze was on MLK at a Costco parking lot.

I ordered their special of the day, which was the saimen (soup noodle) topped with spam & fish cake, and an ahi poke wrap (same as my first time). Martin ordered two ahi poke wraps topped with kim chi, and for dessert we were given Malasadas, a spongy doughnut rolled in granulated sugar.

Las Vegas, NV: Island Breeze

Island Breeze trucks, Las Vegas, NV
@Islandbreezelv
Ahi Poke tuna island fusion
 
Spam Musubi
Yes, even on vacation a gourmet truck junkie can't stay away from a food truck. After checking into our hotel, I searched twitter and found Island Breeze about 7 minutes from the Strip. They were located near Circus Circus in an industrial section. They were pulling away when I flagged them down.

I wanted just a snack since I was meeting my parents for dinner in 3 hours. The guys from Island Breeze suggested the Ahi Poke Island wrap, and I also added an order of Spam Musubi. I wish I could have tried more food, but those morsels hit the spot!
