March into National Nutrition Month: Healthy Dining Options at Ocean Casino Resort

Published: March 2024

Whether you attend one of Ocean Casino Resort’s many high-profile concerts in Atlantic City, join us to bet on a big sports event, or simply indulge in a weekend getaway this March, you’re sure to find a dining concept that whets your palate and exceeds your expectations.

But what if you’re sticking to your New Year’s Resolutions—or celebrating National Nutrition Month this March? Can you still find lighter fare among our decadent menu options?

In short, yes. Ocean Casino Resort is proud to serve every taste, even if you prefer smaller plates or want to maintain a balanced diet. If you’re looking for a definitive guide to some of the most nutritious meals resort-wide, read on.

#1 Zhen Bang Noodle and Sushi

Zhen Bang Noodle and Sushi is a must-visit for every Ocean Casino Resort guest—whether they’re eating light or want to taste everything on the menu. Zhen Bang is a haven for foodies of all kinds. 

What should you check out on the menu if you’re looking for lighter fare?

  • Steamed dumplings – If you’re craving the perfect texture of a dumpling but don’t want to indulge in fried fare, consider ordering our pork and cabbage or shrimp and chive dumplings steamed instead. 
  • Chicken congee – Packed with savory flavors, chicken congee is a perfect pairing for a side of edamame or choy sum.
  • A specialty roll – Equally colorful and flavorful, our specialty sushi rolls—like the spider and rainbow rolls—are packed with nutrient-dense fish and fresh vegetables.

The best part? No matter what you order, Zhen Bang is a bona-fide culinary experience for every guest. With an open kitchen layout, you can watch our expert chefs fire up the woks and prepare their signature dishes.

#2 Soup Spot

If you’re looking for fresh flavors throughout your stay, you simply have to hit up Soup Spot—Ocean Casino Resort’s hub for delicious sandwiches, breads, and (of course) soups. 

If you’re looking to satisfy your cravings without committing to a hearty portion, consider some of our favorite light options:

  • Chicken noodle soup – A fan favorite (especially in the chillier New Jersey months), our chicken noodle soup is an authentic homage to a homemade classic—complete with homemade croutons.
  • Turkey and swiss wrap – Drizzled in green goddess dressing and nestled in a whole wheat wrap, this turkey and swiss delight is perfect for a pre-casino or post-spa snack.
  • Spinach and mushroom hand pies – Packed with leafy greens and nutrient-rich mushrooms, this hand pie is a must-try.

#3 Distrito

Voted Best Mexican in Casino Player’s Best of Dining & Nightlife Awards 2022, Distrito is the perfect venue for a midday snack, a tequila nightcap, and everything in between. Plus, our taco hub offers numerous lighter options, like:

  • Chicken ropa vieja tacos – Topped with pulled chicken, fresh cilantro, and avocado crema, these are the perfect handheld treat.
  • Fish tacos – Vitamin-packed mahi and red cabbage slaw are the stars of this nutritious taco dish.
  • Burrito bowl – Protein-rich and full of flavor, the burrito bowl makes a colorful, hearty dinner plate featuring all the food groups.

Even if you’re keeping it light, consider squeezing in one of our fruit-forward margaritas like a strawberry or mango El Jefe—a simple combination of Patrón, cointreau, and fresh lime juice.

#4 Amada

One of the crown jewels of Ocean Casino Resort’s fine dining scene, Amada is the culinary brainchild of Chef Garces: a love letter to Andalucía. While it’s certainly home to a wide range of rich, sumptuous Spanish dishes, you can still find lighter plates among this star-studded menu:

  • Almejas con chorizo – Steamed clams with chorizo in a white wine sauce
  • Atun – Herb-crusted seared tuna
  • Coca de alcachofas y setas – Artichoke and mushroom salad with black truffles
  • Lubina negra – Black sea bass with golden quinoa

Plus, the drink menu and wine list aren’t to be missed: between a stunning array of mezcals and chef-selected wines, you’ll discover libations ranging from decadent to delicate. Be sure to try:

  • Sangria blanca
  • The Rose Gold specialty cocktail
  • The Graciano Blend rosé
  • Raventos i Blanc “Blanc de Blancs” 2020

Eating light doesn’t mean missing out on otherworldly flavors, textures, and spices—and this couldn’t be more true at Amada. Reserve your table now
