Noodle Exchange – Las Vegas, Nevada

This is now the most random Las Vegas trip. Our main purpose of the 3 days here was for their airshow as I love airplanes and airshows. Our friends thought it would be fun to be as Asian as possible so Noodle Exchange was definitely not on my radar to go try, we did anyway! This little place was inside the Gold Coast Hotel that’s off the strip. We had rented a car so we were able to get around but I hear there’s buses that go here.

As we were Chinese’ing it up (I know!!) a home meal you’d rarely find in restaurants really interested me. I don’t know why a lot of our dishes sounds terrible translated, but they seriously taste fine!! This one is Minced Beef on Rice which is a very simple dish not even worth the price but it’s easy to eat!

The other dish we had is a noodle dish, and we had their Beef Shank Noodle Soup that was braised beef shank that was full of flavour and it was tender. It had some spice to it and it was delicious.

As I’m here reflecting a bit on the trip, it was quite a different one. It’s really nice that food brings people together and we get to make new memories while sharing past ones. Some friends are meant to keep and some are meant to suddenly exit without much said.

Ping Pang Pong

Yes, I am aware that having Dim Sum in Las Vegas is odd, but we did it! We went to Gold Coast Hotel just off the main strip for Dim Sum at a place called Ping Pang Pong

I’ve got to say, not bad at all for dim sum!! The quality of the Chinese food was really good, and I honestly don’t really remember the price, but I believe it was very reasonable – otherwise, I would either be saying “it’s a GREAT deal!” or “it was SO NOT worth it!”

We started with a bowl of jook or congee – pork with thousand year old egg (Preserved Egg Porridge), which is a very common and popular Chinese rice porridge! It was actually really good, and the texture of the jook was smooth and done quite well!

No matter where I go, I’ve always got my favourites – like Chicken Feet which always seems to be delicious! It’s not exception here, the sauce is really one of my favourites and it was tender!

Also, you really can’t go anywhere without enjoying some Ha Gow – Shrimp Dumpling, and the shrimp was really fresh, sweet and crisp! The dumpling skin was really nice – steamed to perfection!

My parents really like Steamed Pork Balls, so of course they order it! I didn’t mind it here, and it was great!

Steamed Bean Curd Roll

Beef Tendons are one of my favourites when done right. Here, they did this right too! The tendons was infused with flavour and the tendons were soo soft with the “tender” gummyness texture. It was intense and deep, and cooked with the perfect marinade!

This was a weird order, it’s a Shrimp Balls with Crispy Rice, which is like the typical shrimp balls, but they covered it in crispy puffed rice! It added a new dimension of texture to what seems like a simple dim sum! It was a great idea! It worked!

I love any sort of rice crepes, but we ordered 1 order of Beef Rice Crepes, and I honestly thought it wasn’t enough! They actually stuffed their crepes with lots of filling, as some places just put a thin layer of meat in. The actual crepe was really fresh, soft, silky and quite thin!

Overall, this turned out to be a fantastic place for lunch! Everything was so delicious, and the service was excellent. Food constantly came out – which was really easy to over eat! This would be a place I would return to if I wanted a dim sum fix in Las Vegas! Everything was really fresh and you can definitely tell all the dishes were steamed not long before arriving onto the table!
