Whether you are craving for hand-pulled noodles, Hainanese chicken rice, Taiwanese bubble tea and more in the USA, you are still able to embark on an unparalleled dining experience at a 24,000-square-foot hawker-inspired food market in Las Vegas, Nevada, America.
Drawing inspiration from Singapore’s Hawker Centres, Resorts World Las Vegas is opening a 24,000-square-foot food market this summer. The concept, called Famous Foods Street Eats, will encompass 16 different stalls that represent Eastern and Western culinary traditions. The food hall really sets itself apart by bringing some of Asia’s most popular hawker concepts to the USA, including Geylang Claypot Rice, Pepita’s Kitchen and Ten Suns Braised Beef.
Located just off the casino floor within the hotel, the market will also have two bars, including Foods Centre Bar, a 16-seater with a self-pour beer system as well as cocktails and wine on tap, while Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den is described as an ‘elegantly grunge speakeasy’ that is all about cocktails. Famous Foods in Las Vegas will also transport guests to an authentic Asian hawker-inspired market, an experience that has never been replicated in the USA.
Here, guests can sample traditional Shandong dumplings from Hong Kong-based Ah Chun Shandong Dumpling before heading over to the Taiwanese-based Tiger Sugar stall to try their Black Sugar Boba Milk, Peking duck burritos from FUHU Shack and hot honey chicken and waffles from Chef Marcus Samuelsson’s Streetbird Las Vegas. Hand-pulled noodles and Hainanese chicken rice are also served alongside Texas barbecue and eggplant parmesan.
Aside from this Asia’s bustling hawker market in Las Vegas, the Western stalls boast some big names. For instance, Restaurateur Marcus Samuelsson will bring his celebrated Streetbird concept to the food hall, while DJ Steve Aoki and his brother are debuting Kuru Kuru Pa Yakitori, a kitchen that deals in yakitori, kushiyaki and yaki onigiri.
