Great Bao in Las Vegas, NV will make you “bao” down in thanks
Sheridan Su was born in Chinatown, Los Angeles and grew up in Monterey Park. For us Californians, these two cities are the mecca of Chinese cuisine in the southland. His playground was his family’s kitchen, watching and learning what techniques and flavors make a dish. Sheridan took his childhood fascinations to school as he enrolled in and graduated from the Culinary Institute of America. He began his culinary career at Ambrosia on Huntington in Boston which was recognized as of one of Esquire Magazine’s 25 Best New Restaurants. Since then, he has been in kitchens from the Atelier in New York City, Joel Robuchon at the Mansion in Las Vegas (Michelin 3-Star restaurant), Social House in Mexico City, Mexico. In 2010, Chef Sheridan became of the youngest executive chefs on the Las Vegas strip at the age of 28 years old.
But, his dream was to own his own restaurant, making food and flavors from his childhood. In April 2011, his dream became a reality when the Great Bao food truck took to the streets, delivering this special delight to the hungry foodies of Las Vegas. With his popularity abound, in July 2011, he found a permanent stand inside the Touch Salon and Spa. Great Bao is inspired from the flavors of Chef Sheridan’s childhood and the night markets of Asia.
