Fat Choy soars high above its Great Bao beginnings in Las Vegas, NV

Chef Sheridan Su has been on the Las Vegas foodie radar for years. Since being the youngest executive chef on The Strip to his humble beginnings as a food truck owner of Great Bao, Chef Sheridan strives for taste perfection. He even got a shot on Food Network’s Chopped last year. Although, he didn’t make it to be the Chopped Champion, he will always be a taste champion in my book. Chef Sheridan’s good luck strikes again with restaurant digs in the Eureka Casino, just east of The Strip. The interior has a diner-feel with iridescent red vinyl covered seats and counter-dining area if you’re on the go. A mural adorns the wall charting Chef Sheridan’s beginnings in the “626” and Great Bao food truck. Now with a full-size kitchen, the menu is far more extensive and will suit anyone’s taste buds. Let’s take a look at some of the classics and new items.

Every time I come to Vegas, Great Bao was always our first stop to have lunch and savor the flavor of the bao. These classic Great Bao items have been carried over to Fat Choy. The following are from my first visit to Great Bao and the taste has been consistent every time I eat them:

Pork Belly Bao is pork belly with pickled mustard greens and crushed peanuts. OMG! This bao is to die for! The pork belly is soft like butter and is melt-in-your-mouth delicious! The crushed peanuts add a crunchy texture and flavor reminiscent of Asian cuisine. Thumbs up, way Tup!”
