One of the reasons we had timed our Zion and Grand Canyon visit for this week was so that it would coincide with the Resorts World opening. What we were interested in wasn’t so much the hotel itself, but in their Famous Street Eats featuring all the famous hawker foods in South East Asia. Since Asia is pretty much shut to us in the foreseeable future due to Covid, we figured that this would be the closest we’d get to eating some SEA food.
Unfortunately, we were not impressed. Luckily, this Vegas leg of the trip was saved by 3 restaurants outside the strip.
New Asian BBQ located in Chinatown offers authentic dim sum.
Ton Ton Katsuya has a wait of about 45 minutes, so you know the food is good.
Shang offers hand-pulled and shaved (刀削) Chinese noodles. The wait here was even longer – over an hour on a Wednesday afternoon! Don’t people have to work?
Lastly, an honorable mention goes to Every Grain with its flaky scallion pancakes along with french onion and hot sauce dip, an unexpected combination.
From now on, these joints will be our must hit places whenever we pass through Vegas. All thanks to Strictly Dumpling (https://www.youtube.com/user/strictlydumpling), who absolutely saved our trip!
