Jessie Rae's BBQ
Jessie Rae’s serves up what it’s call “Las Vegas-style barbecue,” mashing up styles from Memphis, Arkansas and Texas. Look for tri tips, pulled pork, brisket, pork ribs, sausage and chicken thighs along with sides such as mac and cheese and baked beans.
Jjanga Fusion Pocha
Korean pub food teams up with soju cocktails at this new lounge. Try dishes such as manul chicken wrapped in lettuce, gyoza, beef tataki, garlic chicken wings or bulgogi.
Mala means “spicy with a tingle” in Chinese, and the new Mala Restaurant delivers hot and spicy Szechuan food. Start with snacks or starters that alternate between crispy, chewy, spicy, mild and sticky. Then, the spice level slowly builds throughout the main courses. Soup is often served throughout the meal to offset or add to “the crescendo of seasonings.” Dishes here are served family style as they become ready.
Niu-Gu Noodle House
Try a different style of ramen at Niu-Gu, which serves more of a Chinese beef noodle soup using ramen. Order it in original, miso or lemon pepper, then add ingredients such as egg, corn or broccoli.
Louisiana-style seafood gets an Asian kick at the new Smokin’ Crawfish. Try oysters, crawfish, shrimp and more done smokin' style or with garlic butter, or just make it a po boy.
Sinaloense-style sushi comes to Vegas with this new restaurant on the east side.
Sushi Hiroyoshi Japanese Cuisine
The Sushi Yamaguchi space went from dark cave to a modern space under the new Sushi Hiroyoshi Japanese Cuisine that some have compared to Kabuto. Start with one of three featured appetizers such as a tofu-uni dish, a seared tuna or a cucumber-jellyfish salad. Then try dishes such as a Scottish salmon tartare, toro taku with fatty tuna and pickled daikon, una kyu with golden eel and cucumber or nigiri.
