Wazuzu Star Rating
Wazuzu is so good. I don’t know if it is because I love food, but Las Vegas seems to have the best eats ever and Wazuzu is a MUST-Go! I guess before heading to this restaurant, my poker player friend kept telling me she wanted me to try this noodle bar at the Wynn. I didn’t want to go to a noodle bar, so it took her a week to convince me. I should have known she had no idea what she was talking about because Wazuzu is not a noodle bar. Wazuzu is a asian-fusion restaurant inspired by Chinese, Indian, Thai and Japanese cuisine. The menu is huge and seems to have a bit of everything.
Regardless of how much food we ordered, everything was delicious. We definitely ordered too much and I tried my best to eat it all but couldn’t. I have nothing to say about this restaurant. The decor is beautiful, the patrons seem a bit pretentious and snobby… but it’s the Wynn so what do you expect? Rich people are everywhere so maybe it’s just in the air.
The ambiance was also very nice. Asian themed and beautiful with a crystal dragon lining the wall. The menu prices are a bit high, but you actually get alot of food so the value isn’t too bad. I don’t know why I always like to take photos of the sushi part of menus but here it is below. The sushi prices in Vegas are always insane and shocks me (maybe that is why?).
Seriously… if you are a foodie, you need to eat this. I googled the Wazuzu recipe from the chef himself and copy and pasted it here for you. We ordered ours with shrimp and pork, but regardless the flavor is amazing.
Executive Chef Jet Tila of Wazuzu at Encore, Las Vegas graciously shares this recipe for Drunken Noodles (Pad Kee Mow) that can easily be prepared at home.
Ingredients for Wazuzu Drunken Noodles (Pad Kee Mow):
3 tbsp black soy sauce
1 tbsp sweet soy sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp fish sauce
3 tbsp canola or peanut oil
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 pounds beef, pork or chicken, thin sliced against the grain
1/2 medium white onion, sliced
4 cups fresh rice noodles, separated
1 cup Thai basil leaves, loosely packed
1/2 medium tomato, sliced
1/2 tsp white pepper
I don’t know if you can prepare this at home and have it taste as good as Wazuzu but you can try. If you do, please let us know how it turned out! I will try too and let you know if mine is good.
You must eat at Wazuzu if you love Asian Food and are in the Vegas area!
Omm nomm nomm…
