KU NOODLE [Las Vegas]

Another restaurant at our hotel and by my now fave chef José Andrés once again. We were skeptical to try a Chinese Noodle place my a non-Asian chef... Since we became fan of the chef, we decided to give Ku Noodle a try.

The space is bright and very simple

 We sat by the kitchen where you get to see the noodles made right in front of you.
Rolling, pulling, chopping....

 Golden Pork Mein 金玉滿屋 $16.88
~ Belt Noodle, Red Braised Pork Belly, Pickled Watermelon Radish, Fried Garlic, Gold
 Melt in your mouth fatty goodness and love the yummy sauce which can be a bit salty which is offset by the pickled radish. Good but doesn't justified the price tag for this small bowl.
(we can't help but miss the noodle back home here)

Ants Climbing a Tree 螞蟻上樹 $16.88
~ Cellophane Noodle, Chicken, Chiles, Pea Shoots
Love the dry as in no sauce but can't help but think how I can probably replicate this at home with some soy sauce and black beans.

Yummy but thought I could easily get something just as good for a fraction of the price back in Toronto.
I would rather try something different in Vegas, for example another of José Andrés here

  1. While the dumplings are rather pricey, I thought the rest was quite reasonable. I was very willing to pay the money for the food, because what we got was excellent, and the server was very sweet. If you get there again, try their scallion pancakes with spiced duck leg. YUM!
