Chinatown’s Sapporo Revolving Sushi was the first local restaurant to serve sushi via conveyor belts and after less than six months in Spring Valley, its spin-off Korean barbecue concept is already planning to open a second location featuring its own automated delivery process.
Master Kim’s Korean BBQ will expand into Town Square later this year, dropping off ingredients at each table to be cooked on non-stick grills. Moving into The Landing, the new retail and dining hub facing Las Vegas Boulevard, Master Kim’s will join The Broken Yolk Café, a Cafe Rio Mexican Grill and locals Bok Bok Chicken.
Yet to be announced by the parent company, the Korean barbecue will replace the originally scheduled home of Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar, now relocated to the opposite side of Town Square and promising to be ready by February inside the former Pot Liquor space.
Master Kim’s offers diners an all-you-can-eat package, or an à la carte menu, with ordered ingredients swiftly arriving on the robotic machine. Human staff are always available to assist.
The restaurant will neighbor its owner’s counter-service chain, Sweet Poké, already serving its salad bowls and sushi burritos at four Las Vegas locations. The company also operates Ichi Ramen House in Centennial and Samurai Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi in Henderson.
A second Sapporo Revolving Sushi is currently being finalized in Centennial, still promoted as “coming soon” after missing a number of targeted debut dates last year.
