Five Foodie Spots in Las Vegas

By Ferron Salniker

The Vegas strip is not really my scene, but a strip mall Chinatown full of restaurants? I’m down. Here are a few restaurants and bars in Las Vegas that aren’t too cheesy, or maybe just perfectly cheesy.

Bardot Brasserie at the Aria

Bardot Brasserie at the Aria:

For classic French food executed superbly, head to this bistro inside the Aria Hotel. I would tell you what to order, but I could eat everything a thousand times over.

Don’t sleep on this happy hour! From 4-7 pm Sun-Fri and 11 pm till close Sushi Samba offers a number of plates for $6 and a few cocktails at the same price. Go for the wagyu gyoza with kabocha squash, Japanese eggplant anticuchos, and the ezo, amazonia and tuna rolls.

The Golden Tiki, Chinatown

The Golden Tiki, Chinatown:

A 24 hour tiki bar in Chinatown? Sounds like just the right amount of quirky. The Vegas Chinatown is a series of strip malls with a lot of different Asian restaurants. Pull in near Lee’s Sandwiches and you’ll find a huge Tiki bar with a dance floor, clam shell sofa, starry ceilings and a great selection of Tiki drinks.

Lee’s Sandwiches, Chinatown

Lee’s Sandwiches, Chinatown:

This Vietnamese sandwich chain born in San Jose is a very dependable place to rest your weary wallet. $5 for a grilled chicken sandwich on a housemade baguette might be the best deal in Vegas.

Pho Kim Long, Chinatown

Pho Kim Long, Chinatown:

Why yes, I would like a bowl of noodles at 4 a.m. I was sober enough to marvel at the flavor-packed broth in the combo pho, with enough alcohol in my body to appreciate how important this giant bowl of noodles was for my survival the next morning.
