The fast, casual interpretation of Taipei's street dining scene coming to Paris Las Vegas is looking well on track to meet its anticipated July debut. Yong Kang Street takes its name from Taiwan's famed Yongkang Street district.

Caesars Entertainment promises the dumpling and noodle house menu "will range from a wide variety of Taiwanese snacks like 'cong zhua bing' to beef noodles and shaved ice mountains."

A 2013 online guide has already described the real Yongkang Street with the curiously same language of "cheap and delicious Taiwanese snacks like 'cong zhua bing', shaved ice mountain or beef noodles." A tiny onion pancake stand named Cong Zhua Bing is a famed go-to spot for Taipei's food adventurers.

In Las Vegas, the 2,770-square-foot counter service spot has spent an estimated $525,000 on construction.

A bright, Broadway-bulb sign and arrow points customers to the "noodles" counter. The look features lanterns and small flags, fake weathered walls and keeps the cobblestone paving of the resort's Le Boulevard promenade.

Created by HIG Management, the force behind F.A.M.E. at The Linq and the food courts at the Hawaiian Marketplace and Neonopolis, the current very close to final product appears very little like the design rendering prominently posted on the plywood during early construction.

This dining addition is a few steps away from the ongoing work on Steve Martorano's forthcoming Italian restaurant. To aid in the expansion of that 17,667-square-foot takeover of the former Le Provençal space, the popular La Creperie crepe counter has been moved a few steps east and grown in size, but still backs onto JJ's Boulangerie sandwich café.
