One of the more unique dining experiences in the city is found at Resorts World Las Vegas, where Famous Foods Street Eats provides a veritable world tour for foodies in one place.
When the food hall opened, a number of celebrated chefs and notable personalities were invited in, from “Lechon Diva” Dedet de la Fuente to the Aoki brothers. Several of the restaurants have even been mentioned in the Michelin Guide.
A curated menu in each booth presents so many iconic flavors. For instance, in de la Fuente’s Pepita’s Kitchen, you’ll notice a roasted pig near the clear dividers looking out on the crowd. That meat is used in pork dishes like lechon and truffled rice with shiitake mushrooms and crispy skin.
At the Aoki brothers’ Kura Kura Pa, featuring a variety of yakitori (skewered foods) and combos to experience two or three varieties of chicken or pork, plus onigiri. Blood Bros BBQ serves Texas barbecue, Han’s Fish and Chips offers a couple of fried fish options and fries, and Streetbird brings Marcus Samuelsson’s Nashville-style fried chicken. You can find tacos, milk tea, chicken rice, burgers and more at other booths.
For a large meal, the Nori Bar presents a variety of made-to-order handrolls, sashimi and sake, as well as teas and Japanese beer on tap. Order separately or order a set, which lets you taste several for a reasonable fixed price. Another option is FUHU Cha Chaan Teng, the only sit-down restaurant in the food hall. It serves a full menu with selections from several Asian cultures, such as pho, Mongolian beef, clay pot dishes, BBQ pork buns, crispy fried lumpia and a toasted Spam and scrambled egg sandwich, plus whole crispy Peking duck.
In the center of the food hall are two special kiosks. Famous Foods’ Sweet Eats has dipped apples, all kinds of pastries and flavored ices. And the impressive Famous Foods Center Bar is decorated with neon signs that evoke a Japanese street scene. The 16-seat bar features an automated self-pour beer system. Nice!
