Chinese food may be at its most authentic in Beijing, and you can get great Asian fare in most big U.S. cities, but as with most everything else, Las Vegas plays second fiddle to no one when it comes to dim sum.
On your next trip to Nevada, plan a meal or two of the Chinese persuasion. You won’t be disappointed if I can persuade you to stick to this list!
Located in Chinatown, I can’t say much (that’s positive) about the environment or decor at China Mama. “Nondescript” is the kindest I can do. But as for the food, written approximations of salivating noises will have to suffice: mmmmmm. They have a large menu and tremendous desserts, but the go-to order is xiao long bao (steamed pork dumplings). Whether you are looking for hot pots or great apps, the price is right, the ingredients are fresh, and the taste is authentic. Just make sure to get the authentic Chinese menu, or go for dim sum; stay away from the Americanized options.
This is not your everyday Chinese meal. In fact, it isn’t clear whether this is Chinese food at all. Spanish chef to the stars Jose Andres crosses Chinese and Mexican at this culinary adventure of a restaurant located at The Cosmopolitan. Consider sitting at the noodle bar, where you can watch chefs hand-make noodles. Ask the knowledgeable servers for advice to create a really one-of-a-kind meal, then garnish it with one of their top-shelf drinks.
To be clear, the food at Joyful House is good. (The grilled meats are particularly tasty.) But if I’m being completely honest, it’s probably accentuated by the fact that the restaurant is open until 3:00 AM and late-night Chinese food is awesome. The menu is mainly Cantonese-inspired and the portions tend to be large. Their Peking Duck was recently recognized by foodandwine.com. You won’t be disappointed going here at any time of day, but should you find yourself on the hunt after a long night, I dare say it can’t be beat.
You have to go to Henderson, about a 15 minute drive, to taste one of the best dim sum spots around. As the perpetually long line indicates, though, the trip is worth the time. Most items are $3, making it a tasty and affordable way to have a fun meal. If you go in the evening and they’ve run out of dim sum, the seafood options are plentiful and fresh.
Not everything is strictly Chinese at Noodles, but everything is good (as far as I can tell). Shockingly, their forte is noodles. Located at the Bellagio, you’ll find the noodle variety that’s right for you, be it rice, egg, soba, udon, vermicelli, or pho. Don’t know which is right for you? Sample them all to find out and then order your fave!
