Locally owned restaurants are our go to when looking to celebrate entrepreneurship from the cities incredible culinary talent off the famed Las Vegas Strip.
We first met owners Chris Holding and Van-Alan Nguyen almost a year before they opened their successful venue. After talking with them over drinks, they shared vision for craft beer and good food with a brew pub style Las Vegas restaurant; a haven for people to come together, enjoy unique Asian cuisine and of course a cold brew. “We hope to energize the community in joining us to support the independent brewers who pour their heart and soul into every batch of beer they brew,” they said.
A perfect example of their home-grown relationships is when the bar and restaurant partnered with local brewery Joseph James to unveil the brewery’s 10th anniversary beer along with a handful of rare sours and stouts. This epic experience let us sample some great craft beers and just plain have a good time. They could have looked into getting some promotional custom embroidery merchandise to commemorate the experience as I know lots of people really enjoyed the day and the beer.
In addition to a huge selection of local and rare craft beers, abundant fresh food selections are available to sink your teeth into such as the Signature Banh Mi. This Honey Soy Glazed BBQ Pork, cucumber, pickled veggies, cilantro, jalapeño mayo and rich maggi will have you coming back again and again.
A personal favorite, the Furikake Tuna Burger with fresh baby arugula, scallion oil,tomato, shiitake and aioliis is layered with Asian flare and flavor. For those who need a boost after a long night, the Hangover Fries with a chopped burger patty, sharp American, bacon, fried Onion, pickled fresnochilis, scallion and fry sauce is the best way to get your day started right.
It’s always a pleasure to watch a restaurant grow from its inception into a busy, popular place. Chris Holding Van-Alan Nguyen and their staff have taken their time and done it right and continue to engage and excite the Las Vegas dining crowd.
