Foodies hit the jackpot at Resorts World Las Vegas: Travel Weekly

A huge selection of Asian-inspired street food in one convenient location and over a dozen traditional eateries are slated for the 3,500 Keys at Resorts World Las Vegas when it opens on June 24.

Famous Foods Street Eats, a 24,000 square foot venue, will feature 16 stalls from top chefs and restaurateurs featuring cuisines from around the world. The area will also include a 16-seat central bar and Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den, what the promoters call an “elegantly grunge discreetly hidden speakeasy”.

“Famous Foods will transport customers to an authentic Asian hawker market – an experience that has never been replicated in the United States,” said Andrew Li, CEO of Zouk Group, a nightlife and lifestyle brand from Singapore.

Among the “oriental” stalls: Ah Chun Shandong Dumpling, serving traditional dumplings and hand-drawn noodle dishes; Boon Tong Kee, with traditional Hainan chicken rice, with tender poached chicken accompanied by rice cooked in chicken broth; and Char Kuey Teow from Googgle Man, who uses traditional charcoal stoves to fry the noodles to produce a smoky aroma called wok hei, or “dragon’s breath”.
