ChiAm Dim Sum
Address: 6010 W Craig Rd., #150
Status: Every day from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
ChiAm, the very ambitious casual chain, has opened its first 2,200-square-foot location at the Lowe's Plaza, with dozens more planned for the future.
Specializing in mix and match portions of dim sum and a promise of offering "quality meat, farm-grown vegetables and organic choices," the restaurant's MSG-free menu includes Siu Mai pork, chicken, shrimp or beef with dipping sauces, Dynasty Mongolian Beef, Dragon Kung Pao chicken, spare ribs, noodles, spring rolls and hot and sour soup.
The counter service venture aims to develop over 30 local spots, including an outpost at Charleston and Torrey Pines, plus locations in Blue Diamond, Centennial, North Las Vegas, Green Valley, Henderson, Summerlin and the Strip.
