From Our Editors

Pura Vida Bakery & Bystro chef and owner Mayra Trabulse has one goal: to create compassionate cuisine with a level of flavor that reflects her diverse cultural background. As she shared with Katherine Fernelius of Vegas Seven, Mayra is half Lebanese and half Cuban, and was born and raised in Mexico City. After moving to Las Vegas and attending community college, Mayra found herself unfulfilled. She decided to relocate to Florida, where she began to explore the politics of eating and her own relationship with food. She founded a catering business and became a private vegan chef before returning once more to Las Vegas to share her signature Caribbean- and Southwest-inspired dishes with Nevadans.

Mayra incorporated the Spanish phrase "pura vida" into the moniker of her eatery because it's a greeting or a farewell that can signify a sense of community and enjoying life slowly. That's exactly what she wants diners to feel at the restaurant, where she uses local, organic, fair-trade ingredients and incorporates macrobiotic, Ayurvedic, and raw-food principles in her low-temperature cooking. Mayra enhances her creations with unrefined oils and sweeteners and grinds whole spices for maximum flavor. Boasting a designated gluten-free area of her kitchen, she can cater to most any dietary restriction—Vanessa Meier of The Green Girl Next Door blog described how Mayra composed custom, on-the-fly dishes that were "beautiful and clearly prepared with so much love" for her and her husband.

And Meier isn't the only critic to take note of the blossoming restaurant: it earned Las Vegas Weekly’s 2012 Best Vegan Eating award and was named the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s Dining Pick of the Week in October 2012. Mayra and her team also cater special events and bake custom vegan wedding cakes for couples being married by an Elvis wearing faux-blue-suede shoes.

Las Vegas Restaurant Guide

Dining in Las Vegas is more than just eating. It’s an experience that’s just as much a part of the whole Vegas scene as gambling, nightlife and shopping. Las Vegas has practically every type of food to satisfy every type of diner.

Want a full buffet for breakfast, or simply a bowl of oatmeal with fresh fruit in the morning? How about a grilled veggie sandwich for lunch — done gourmet style with organic vegetables and imported olive oil — and an iced cappuccino on the side? Dinner tends to be more of an elaborate affair in Las Vegas. Hit one of the casinos for some gourmet Asian cuisine or maybe a pan-American fusion-type meal. The best thing about dining in Las Vegas is that the hotels and restaurants serve incredible, over-the-top dishes 24 hours a day!

Possibly one of the biggest pieces of news in Las Vegas dining recently has been Steve Wynn’s conversion to veganism. All of the restaurants in the Wynn and Encore hotels now have a separate vegan menu, including at Okada, a romantic eatery filled with waterfalls and gardens. Stop into Wazuzi at the Encore for their fresh-pressed watermelon juice. Delicious!

The Canyon Ranch Spa Cafe caters to the health-conscious crowd. Yes, there are some Vegas foodies who like to dine on freshly made, organic, good-for-you type of delectables. Try the tofu and spinach salad or the flatbread with pesto.

One  doesn't  have to dine at a hotel to eat fantastic Las Vegas food. Pura Vida Bakery and Bystro offers daily specials like waffles with fresh strawberries and walnuts, drizzled in cocao-loco. Go Raw Cafe, with two locations, serves up salads, enchiladas, a rawburger and tasty juices. At the Fashion Show Mall, sit down for lunch at Red Velvet Cafe for a spinach and artichoke panini and a matcha latte.

Vegas caters to every dining whim!
