Last night has left you with just the twenty that you hide in your sock for emergencies, a lost wallet, and a 4pm meet-up with your kind but annoyed Uber driver. When you need something for lunch in the meantime, but your friends refuse to lend you money for the seventh time, head to Brasa Roja, a Colombian restaurant just five minutes north of the Strip. At $4.95, the steak and chicken specials, both of which come with rice, beans, and salad, are the answer - and if you get an extra order to go, that driver might not be quite so angry.
