Quicker than expected, Shanghai Plaza’s newest tenant is already serving sticky “glutinous rice” dishes served in clay pots, a Cantonese-style of preparation its owners claim is unique to Las Vegas.

With room for less than 40 diners inside, Yummy Rice’s equally compact menu concentrates on its specialty selections, cooked with the rice at the base of the pot to “absorb any flavors.”

Lunch specials are all priced at $8 and include the soup of the day. Diners can choose between Chinese sausage, chicken and mushroom, beef and eggs, “vegetarian,” or minced pork and eggs.

For dinner, prices range between $12 for Chinese sausage and rise to $18 for “mixed seafood,” but each order arrives with a “side of egg custard, vegetables and a daily side dish.”

Other dinner options include, “three preserved meat,” Japanese-style eel, chicken curry, and “frog leg with garlic sauce.”

Yummy Rice, 4266 Spring Mountain Road, Suite B101, Henderson, 702-331-3789. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., closing at 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
