Red 8 (Las Vegas – Wynn)
December in Vegas has a couple of benefits… one of which is that it’s not 40°+ outside while you’re walking on The Strip. While I remembered that walking The Strip was an arduous trek, I had forgotten just how long a walk it is from one end to the other.
We found ourselves with only a short period of time before our showing of Le Rêve started (which was awesome by the way) and we needed to grab some nurishment so we stopped by for a quick bite at Red 8 in the Wynn. For those of you who weren’t aware, the colour “red” and the number “8” are both signs of good fortune in Chinese culture.
The decor in this Chinese bistro is filled with red and black colours and the waiters were actually quite helpful. Pricewise, the dishes would be considered expensive for Chinese food but I find that a lot of the restaurants on The Strip tend to be on the pricier side.
Yangzhou Shrimp and BBQ Pork Fried Rice ($21).
Sautéed String Beans ($18).
Chicken Chow Mein ($20).
All of the food was made quite well and the service was up to standards for a higher-end Chinese restaurant. I think we were the only Chinese people eating here :-).
