Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017|2 a.m.

Ping Pang Pong simply may be Las Vegas’ all-time favorite Chinese dining establishment. The Gold Coast restaurant opened in 2001 however looks like it’s been around a lot longer than that, most likely since owners and operators Karrie and Kevin Wu have actually been serving deliciously authentic cuisine in Vegas for a bit longer, having opened the previous Royal Star restaurant at Venetian in 1999.

The couple still operates Noodle Asia at Venetian and the equally casual Noodle Exchange at Gold Coast, but Ping Pang Pong is the name everybody understands, from faithful locals who pack the place every day to get their dim sum fix, to Las Vegas visitors and Chinese tourists who seek out its live seafood specialties and hard-to-find delicacies like salt-and-pepper frog legs or Taiwanese three cup chicken whenever they remain in town.

Last month, Ping Pang Pong re-opened after a substantial redesign and expansion, now offering seating for 300 guests and a personal banquet room currently in great demand. The task was the current in a series of recent restaurant modifications at Boyd Video gaming properties, including the new steakhouse Cornerstone also at the Gold Coast. However Ping Pang Pong just had to get bigger to get much better– no change in idea or food for this beloved area, which 4 years back was recognized as one of the top Chinese restaurants in the country by Travel + Leisure.

Brand-new touches consist of dark walnut screenwork and wood paneling, 2 genuine foo canine (Chinese guardian lions) sculptures and an apothecary cabinet-style reception table at the entry, and a total rejuvenated environment with vibrant touches of red and amber. The banquet space can host around 100 guests for special occasions or personal parties.

Ping Pang Pong’s popular dim sum menu, served daily from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (and be prepared to wait in line a bit if you go), is everybody’s preferred because it provides innovative seasonal specialties in addition to requirements like shumai shrimp and pork dumplings, har gow shrimp dumplings and cha siu bao steamed pork buns. The mango lobster scallop roll, for instance, integrates those fresh components in crispy fried, panko-tossed rice paper, while the aromatic duck bun features Cantonese-style, five-spice roasted duck with cucumber in a steamed lotus bun.

Dinner is served from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m., with familiar favorites like roast duck, kung pao chicken and Yang Chow fried rice meshing with more exotic fare such as Cantonese Princess Chicken with dry scallop and ginger sauce or green tea-flavored Dragon Well shrimp.

Whether it’s daytime dim sum, a family dinner or a late night noodle fix, Ping Pang Pong continues to be a real Vegas food institution, and now it has a more comfy, even regal environment fitting its track record.

Discover fresh thrills on RM Seafood’s brand-new brunch menu

When you consider chef Rick Moonen, sustainability is probably the very first word that comes to mind. The Top Chef star has been an advocate of accountable, community-focused food from the beginning, motivating people to reconsider how they see the environment in connection to the food on their plates.

For his brand-new brunch menu at RM Seafood, Moonen incorporates that sustainable story, utilizing the ever-changing catch of the day for his fresh grilled fish tacos prepared with cabbage-radish slaw, kimchi vinaigrette, avocado and lime crema. Charred Spanish octopus strikes a harmonious balance of heavy and light, with tender slices surrounded by savory roasted fingerling potatoes, cherry tomatoes and an intense lemon aioli.

But the breakfast choices are where Moonen goes huge. The house-cured salmon– with regional arugula and a potato latke– is topped with an alluring caper-crusted fried egg and ended up with dill crema, ending in a rich and incredible fusion of textures and flavors. Order a vodka or gin-based Bloody Mary, and you’ve got a brunch for the books.

Sweet tooth? The stuffed brioche French toast (seasonal berries, whipped mascarpone, berry gastrique and smooth Chantilly cream) is like having your own personal cake as an entrée. And who could say no to cake for breakfast?

If you weren’t persuaded already, the smoked BARBEQUE Stubborn belly Benny– with house-smoked pork stubborn belly, grilled filone, a “best egg” and maple-orange Hollandaise– proves once again that Moonen can do all of it. From his refined spin on early-morning classics to market-fresh seafood and sushi, the star chef’s brunch uses something for every single occasion. It’s class with a conscience, and with Moonen at the helm, we wouldn’t expect any less. RM Seafood at the Shoppes at Mandalay Location, 702-632-9300; Daily 11:30 a.m.-11 p.m.

The Slanted Door will bring fresh flavors to the Strip

The retail juggernaut that is the 25-year-old Online forum Shops at Caesars Palace still boasts a powerful dining lineup, even if some of the most prominent dining establishments (Spago, the Palm, Il Mulino, Trevi, Joe’s, Sushi Roku) have actually been around for a long time. The next addition is something really various from the American, Italian, Mexican and Japanese food discovered at the Forum: the Slanted Door, a James Beard Acclaimed Vietnamese restaurant with a 20-plus-year history in San Francisco, will open an 8,200-square-foot area here in 2018.

Owner and executive chef Charles Phan was born in Da Lat, Vietnam, and resided in Guam as a youth prior to relocating to San Francisco with his family. After working as a clothes designer and in Silicon Valley tech scene in the ’90s, Phan pioneered a contemporary, ingredient-driven style of Vietnamese cooking in the Bay Area– and he’ll be doing something comparable on the Strip.

Despite the basic popularity of southeast Asian food from Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Singapore and the Philippines, these cuisines are underrepresented on Las Vegas Boulevard. Aria has the excellent Lemongrass, Bally’s has the mainly forgotten Sea and TI has a pho spot crushed into its coffee bar. Beyond those, you can hunt through noodle bar menus for the occasional one-off dish.

Vegas food travelers (Asian or otherwise) have become familiar with heading off-Strip (mainly to Spring Mountain Roadway) to find more unique foods, which makes us question why it’s taking so long to get this things on the Boulevard. The Slanted Door will be a more than welcome addition.

Editor’s Note: As Robin Leach invests family time in La Jolla, Calif., after returning to the United States from his annual Italian travels, numerous of our Strip characters have actually stepped forward in his absence to pen their words of wisdom.

We continue today with “Absinthe” at Caesars Palace acrobat Alexa Hukari, who found love up in the air with hubby Ming Hukari, and celebrity chef Barry Dakake at the star-studded N9NE Steakhouse in the Palms. Right here’s Barry as he steps from behind the grill at work to discover peace and cool on his patio area in your home:

Summer cooking is everything about working with fresh ingredients that can be prepared rapidly.

When July melts its way into August, the summer harvest is at its peak. As the weather condition remains to get warmer, there are numerous tasty reasons to delight in cooking throughout the most plentiful season.

Right now, the grill takes spotlight. I recommend barbecuing marinated fresh Alaskan halibut, scallops, New England lobster, steaks and chops. A simple fast marinade includes extra virgin olive oil, thinly sliced shallots, very finely sliced garlic, broken pepper and the season’s freshest herbs.

A few of my favorite grilled vegetables that howl summertime include heirloom tomatoes, sunburst squash, infant zucchini, squash flowers, sweet corn, eggplant, green beans, asparagus, bell peppers, beets and endive.

The caramelizing flames highlight the natural tastes in these veggies, and the touch of smoke from the grill improves the taste. (I enjoy barbecuing with different fruitwood). Making great kebobs, cut proteins and vegetables in 1-inch cubes and marinate. Skewer some kebobs and let that fruitwood and fire do its work.

I like to pop open a bottle of 2012 Blindfold by Prisoner Wine Co. and rest on my patio area while grilling and relaxing.

On those starry-skied summer season nights when you ‘d rather let me put on the chef coat, I extremely advise you attempt some of N9NE’s most popular dishes:

Fresh Dover: Sole, simply sauteed and sprinkled with fresh lemon and extra-virgin olive oil. You can really experience the best taste on your taste buds with the simplicity of the seasoning.

Barry’s Steak: This 10-ounce prime rib cap is marinated in extra-virgin olive oil, sliced up shallots and garlic, then grilled with a small char to boost the flavor and topped with roasted shishito peppers and cipollini onions. If a steak is called after me, you understand it’s got ta be really tasty!

Organic Roasted Fire Chicken: Served with Fresno Chili, jalapeno peppers and a tip of lemon. This dish literally melts in your mouth!

Colorado lamb chops: Half-rack, sauteed with a parmesan pine nut crust and doned with red wine rosemary jus. This is such a staple dish that this recipe has actually never altered.

Some More S’mores: Among our bestselling desserts served together with pistachio-, raspberry- and orange-flavored house-made marshmallows and white, milk and chocolate ganache-covered graham crackers served along with skewers and open hibachi-style flame.

Being a Rhode Island native, I raiseded consuming the best lobster and fish from the Atlantic Ocean. I have numerous fond memories of going to the beach this time of year with my family and later on cracking open fresh lobsters in the beach home kitchen area.

The only part about this I always did not like was the mess it left behind, so at N9NE we make it easy for you and take the lobster out of its shell serving our signature browse and grass in a lazy man’s design type of way (no shell, laying carefully on a filet mignon sprinkled with truffle aioli and doned with red wine sauce.)

I could not discuss N9NE without pointing out a few of our current star visitors: Nicki Minaj, Meek Mill, Macklemore, Adrien Brody, Steve Lawrence, Jerry Lewis, Floyd Mayweather Jr., Chris Weidman, Chuck Zeto, Jenna Marbles, Vince Neil and Nicolas Cage.

You are simply as essential to me, so come go to at N9NE– and I’ll treat you like a VIP, too!

Be sure to look into our other guest column today from Alexa Hukari of “Absinthe” at Caesars Palace. On Thursday, our visitor columnists are good-looking hunk James Davis of Chippendales at the Rio and “Bar Rescue” mixologist and reality-TV star Mia Mastroianni.

Thursday, July 30, 2015|5:47 p.m.

Three more Fresh & & Easy grocery stores are failing in Las Vegas after failed efforts to enhance income.
