Great Tastes of Asia

A trip to Beijing, Hong Kong or Toyko isn’t necessary. You can taste those local delicacies right in Las Vegas. Here are a few of our favorite Asian dishes found on The Strip.

Beijing Noodle No. 9 – Caesars Palace

Gigantic fish tanks mark the entrance of this stark white eatery, which sports a 14-page menu consisting of Northern Chinese staples such as chow mein, Beijing pancakes, Sichuan fish, and hand-stretched noodles.

HIGHLIGHT: Honey walnut prawn are lightly battered and deep fried until golden brown; then tossed in a sweet honey-mayo sauce and topped with candied walnuts for added crunch.

MR CHOW – Caesars Palace

“Our philosophy is based on theater. We want to entertain you from the minute you walk in,” says restaurant founder Michael Chow.

Dining at MR CHOW is indeed a show. A blue-hued domed sculpture moves overhead and noodles are handstretched in the dining room, while champagne carts and dessert trolleys roam the room. Visit for social hour (daily, 5–7 p.m.) when select bites start at $5 and all drinks are half price.

HIGHLIGHT: Try the Beijing Duck, which Chow calls “one of the crown jewels of Chinese cuisine.” Carved tableside, Chow says, “It takes patience to execute properly. There are no shortcuts here, no gimmicks.”

Nobu Restaurant & Lounge – Caesars Palace

One of the largest Nobu restaurants in the world—and the only in the U.S. to offer teppan tables—the Caesars Palace restaurant features a sushi bar and private dining pods where guests feast on fresh fish, seafood and other exotic delicacies. The most popular dish is the signature black cod with sweet miso. Nobu also stocks three rare sakes from Japan’s Hokusetsu brewery on Sado Island.

HIGHLIGHT: Farm raised in Washington, Kumamoto Oysters are served with three distinct sauces: a tomato-based Las Vegas Salsa; a Maui Salsa with Maui onion, tomato, Ponzu and Ají panca (Peruvian red peppers); and Tiradito-style served with cilantro, soy salt and yuzu lemon.
