Three bites to try at Container Park

Chilaquiles at Pinches Tacos You might be inclined to order tacos at Pinches; the pescado frito and camarones are particularly tasty. But I suggest getting your ass out of bed for the chilaquiles instead. Served until 1 p.m. weekdays and 2 p.m. on weekends, this gooey combination of tortilla chips, eggs, cheese and red sauce isn’t the spiciest rendition of this morning classic, but it’ll do in a pinch. $9.67.

Lobster Salad Sandwich at Bin 702 Hampered by kitchen constraints, Bin 702’s menu is arguably Container Park’s simplest. But it’s also the most consistent—any of proprietor Sonny Ahuja’s offerings are worth the visit. I suggest the lobster salad sandwich, because it replaced my favorite—the hauntingly delicious buffalo shrimp sandwich—but also because the lobster version is crisp and light with a hint of heat from Sriracha aioli. $12.

Kerry’s Famous Sliders at Pork & Beans If Las Vegas has a hallmark dish, it might be Kerry Simon’s Iron Chef Burger. His victory did our city proud long before everyone was doing TV food competitions. This mini-me version sneaks onto the Pork & Beans menu. Its combination of caramelized onions, bacon and red onion jam is a majestic melding of smoky and sweet—and a strong reminder of Simon’s superior way with comfort food. $9.
