We wanted some dim sum this one day, and we've heard both good and bad reviews from friends and family for Ginger Beef Bistro House, but we still wanted to try it for ourselves. Normally, if it's a new restaurant, I give it a chance plus a second chance. I like to think if it's new, things are still a little chaotic, but, things seemed relatively smooth, and the food wasn't bad at all!
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!
