Vegas Trip in Two Weeks: Ideas for Dim Sum or Noodle Fare?
- pilotgirl210 Oct 24, 2006 11:50 PM
A friend and I are meeting in Las Vegas the week of Nov. 6. I am in the mood for at least one meal of dim sum or fabulous Asian noodles. Any ideas, 'Hounds? Thanx for the help.
My personal favorite is Orchids Garden, which has great food, authentic atmosphere and varied selection. You can also try Ping Pang Pong in the Gold Coast. They just started serving Dim Sum daily and their chef was formerly the Dim Sum chef at Royal Star in the Venetian which had some of the best Dim Sum in the city.
Other recommendations for dim sum are Cathay House and Chang's Hong Kong Cuisine. Haven't yet tried the dim sum at Ping Pang Pong.
Thank you so much everyone for your recommendations. I can't wait to get there! I live in a culinary wasteland so this will be a real treat.
A few years back, we had a group dinner at Cathay House. I thought the food was well-prepared and very good, And the view of the Strip from the dining room is pretty good.
I have enjoyed Pho Vietnam for good pho, good food, great prices. They are on the second floor in the main Chinatown building adjacent to 99 Ranch.

As a follow-up, my friend and I decided on Cathay House, as it was open early on the weekday (Wednesday) that we were available. They actually open their doors at 10:30, so we opted for dim sum *brunch*. We had a fabulous meal of bbq pork buns, shrimp balls, potstickers, shrimp dumplings and several other dishes that were recommended by the Asian *cart pushers* but unrecognizable to me....all delicious, though!! Since we were staying at New York, New York, we also had at least three meals at Chin-Chin, the Asian restaurant located inside the hotel. All meals were very good and for the venue, quite reasonably priced. Thank you again for all the recommendations! I can't wait to go again after the first of the year and try other dim sum offerings.......always my fav!!
