Eighteen months since first revealed, chef Jet Tila returns to Las Vegas with a new fast-casual restaurant, now open and serving late in Southern Highlands.

Working alongside Eric Persson, who is also importing Potbelly Sandwich Shops to the region, the 1,631-square-foot Dragon Tiger Noodle Co. moved into the Southern Highlands Marketplace, sitting next to a Tropical Smoothie Cafe.

Decorated with glowing lanterns and featuring an open kitchen, the counter-service space encourages diners to create “your noodles, your way,” or try the “Chef Jet” ingredient combinations.

Open until 2 a.m. at the intersection of Southern Highlands Parkway and Somerset Hills Avenue, noodle choices include house-made ramen, udon, and low carb shirataki, plus tonkotsu, beef pho, and chicken broth, protein options of braised pork belly, chicken, beef, and tofu, and a selection of additional vegetables and toppings.

The Tila creations include his spin on beef pho, Chinese chicken noodle soup, and beef donburi rice bowls and the compact menu currently offers an extra kick from “Chef Jet’s dragon wings.”

Since departing Las Vegas in 2016, the former executive chef of Wazuzu at Encore Las Vegas and creator of shuttered dessert project Kuma Snow Cream earned a national following for his Food network TV appearances and online cooking shows.

Still officially promised, a Dragon Tiger Noodle expansion to Summerlin and a Henderson restaurant to neighbor Persson’s Potbelly store at the Shoppes on the Parkway development near St. Rose Parkway and Amigo Street.

Dragon Tiger Noodle Co., 31050 Southern Highlands Parkway, 702-361-6000. Open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 2 a.m.
