The Las Vegas vegan community is have one amazing 2018.
This April is proving to be a busy month for the vegan dining scene with two new vegan restaurants in Las Vegas planning to open — Blinders Burgers and Brunch and a new outlet from one of the city’s most most well-known vegan chefs, Kenny Chye.
This time, Chye, who first charmed guests and won over omnivores and vegans alike during his run at Veggie House, and later introduced the Las Vegas’ first vegan fast food and drive-thru, Vege-Way, is opening his latest restaurant later this month — Chef Kenny’s Asian Vegan Restaurant.
Located in Las Vegas’ Chinatown neighborhood, Chye’s new venture is set to serve vegan Chinese food (yes, you can expect some of the signature dishes you know and love from his past), along with vegan sushi, pho, ramen and more.
“I’m so excited to have this restaurant open because I can come out with a new vegan concept restaurant,” he says. “My new menu is what people are looking for. When it’s a hot day, sushi is good. A cold day, Chinese cooking is good.”
The spot will also serve milkshakes, fruit teas and even beer and wine. Currently, the restaurant plans on being open 11:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. daily … but don’t hold Chye to that.
“The location is perfect for me to open late,” he explains. “I think [being open] after 10 p.m. every night is good.”
It’s definitely a good time to be vegan in Las Vegas. In the next couple of months, there are at least two other plant-based restaurants opening, and more restaurants with vegan menus opening their doors. Vegan dining in Las Vegas is set to take off and we can’t wait!
Chef Kenny’s Asian Restaurant is located at 6820 Spring Mountain Rd. Check back here for updates on the opening soon.
