    Las Vegas Asian Flavor

    Near the corner of Jones and Desert Inn, in the shadows of the mighty casinos on the strip lies a hidden jewel in the gala of Las Vegas' foodie experience. It's a small brick building (recognizably a former pizza chain), unintimidating in a town with neon, showgirls and gambling... but it is worth finding. With selections from noodles to porridge, rice plates, clay pots and an innovative "East meets West" menu, this place has something for everyone. If you are a fan of Asian food, this is a place you simply have to try. Having visited several (maybe several tens) of times, I can honestly say I have never had anything that was bad here... and I have tried a lot of it. Especially the sweet potato fries. Salty and sweet? Count me in!
    The staff is quick, friendly and effecient - and best of all, they begin to recognize you after only your second or third visit. This may or may not be due to the fact that I was one of the regulars that was not also Asian, but I like to think it was my winning personality. The owner is frequently on-site and makes rounds to make sure that everything is going well, and that you are a happy customer.
    Of course I would be remiss not to mention their absolutely delectible dessert selections. Try anything - try everything! Fresh fruit, custard made on site daily, ice cream, mochi, crepes... they are all amazing, I promise you.
    So if you're tired of the buffets, the neon and the crowds, head toward the Asian district, just off the strip and give this place a try. They are always welcoming and happy, and will feed you until you burst!
