The Palazzo confirms Eater Vegas’ September scoop that Zine Noodles Dim Sum switches over to Hong Kong Café come November. The quick switcheroo takes the shuttered Zine and converts it into a fusion of Asian cuisine and Western fare in a cafe setting, a scene the Palazzo says has found a footing in the restaurant’s namesake city.
"There are literally thousands of restaurants today in Hong Kong," executive chef Simon To, who also handles the exclusive Paiza Club atop the resort for high rollers, says in a press statement. "But the café concept is one that is near and dear to the hearts of travelers who have visited this city."

Expect to find Western-inspired dishes often found in Hong Kong cafes such as ham and egg sandwiches, "Hong Kong" spaghetti and French toast. A Macau-style crispy pork chop sandwich, curry beef stew with steamed white rice, Hong Kong-style French toast, oven baked spaghetti with black truffle and chicken and a pineapple bun with iced butter show off some of the Hong Kong flair on the menu.
Cantonese, Taiwanese, Vietnamese, Szechuan and other Asian cooking styles also find their way on the menu. Old favorites from Zine such as baked Chilean sea bass, pepper-crusted beef tenderloin with golden garlic flakes, king seafood noodle soup, abalone, chicken congee and the Macau-style roasted pork belly return as well.
Chef To has 35 years of experience cooking Asian cuisine. Originally from Hong Kong, he specializes in Canton and Szechwan styles and is considered a dim sum master.
The restaurant expects to be open Sundays through Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 a.m.
