Resort World is set to open this summer, and alongside the beautiful hotel they will have a 24,000 square foot food hall. This food hall will include many different cuisines from Southeast Asian to Texas Barbecue. The food hall will mainly have different meals from Asia, but there will be other options and desserts to try from around the world. 

“Famous Foods, which sits just off the casino floor of the resort that opens this summer on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip, plans to showcase a cornucopia of Asian foods with a heaping helping of Michelin Bib Gourmands and Michelin Plates. Dumplings out of Hong Kong, lechon from the Philippines, Thai beef noodle soup, and fried noodles join outposts from chef Marcus Samuelsson and deejay Steve Aoki among the 16 stalls planned for the food hall that includes a center bar and speakeasy,” states Eater Las Vegas.

Not only is the food rich in Asian culture, the majority of the decorations are based around Asian culture. There will be 2 commissioned art pieces by Red Hong Yi. They will be part of a large ‘exhibit’ that will show the beautiful Las Vegas Strip. 

“Famous Foods sits off the casino floor with neon signs and trinkets and an open seating area with floor-to-ceiling views of the Las Vegas Strip. Two commissioned art pieces by Red Hong Yi, a popular Chinese-Malaysian contemporary artist known for her mixed media, decorate the space, while a 10-foot tall Lucky Cat sculpture made entirely of gold coins anchors the space and an eight-tone mural made of 18,000 tea bags sits at the entrance,” said Eater Las Vegas.

Four restaurants that will be in the food hall, have earned Michelin Plates or Bib Gourmand in their origin countries. The restaurants that received Michelin Plates are Geylang ClayPot and Springleaf Prata Place. The Bib Gourmand recipients are Ah Chun Shandong Dumplings and Ten Suns Braised Beef.

Some other restaurants inside Famous Foods Street Eats are Blood Bros. BBQ which offers Texas barbecue with a Chinese and Vietnamese twist. Another place is Mozz Bar, an Italian food counter from the James Beard Award finalist James Trees. Tiger Sugar, a Taiwanese bubble shop, is the place to try with their variety of black teas and black sugar boba milk. For the adults, there will be 2 bars within the space. One of which, customers can serve themselves as it uses an automated system offering a rotation of drinks from around the world. 

“Guests will be able to pour themselves a drink at the automated 16-seat Center Bar. Those who prefer that someone else do the work will have the option of ordering a drink at the Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den, an elegant grunge speakeasy discreetly hidden away in the depths of the market,” explains Las Vegas Review Journal. 

Producer and DJ Steve Aoki and his brother Kevin Aoki are opening an anime-inspired restaurant named Kura Kura Pa Yakitori and it will feature yakitori, kushiyaki, and yaki onigiri along with drinks and mochi.
