Address: Galleria at Sunset, 1300 W. Sunset Rd., Henderson
Status: Open daily from 11 a.m. “to close”
Almost a year in the making, the fusion menu of Bobby Mao’s Chinese Kitchen & Mexican Cantina debuts today on the second-level of the Galleria at Sunset mall. It takes over the vacant 7,000-square-foot former home of Chevys Fresh Mex, conveniently located next to a main entrance and a Red Robin burger restaurant.
Promising to offer a “high end” atmosphere paired with “affordable pricing,” diners can sit on the “misted” outdoor “dog-friendly” patio, sit in the lounge, at the large bar, or in the main dining areas.
Created by co-owners Bobby Mao and his wife Tina in 2014, the original location at the Westfield Palm Desert mall in California’s Coachella Valley built a following for its split menu featuring Chinese and Mexican dishes and the “Best Happy Hour in the Desert.”
Featured on the long Las Vegas menu, Asian tacos and sliders, lettuce wraps, Kung Pao scallops, and moo shu pork, plus “flaming fajitas” chimichangas, enchiladas, burritos, and specialty entrees including slow-roasted pork carnitas. Vegetarian options inspired by both sides of the menu are served daily after 3 p.m.
