I went to Las Vegas for the third time since 2000 last week but it was my first trip to the Chinatown area. I was impressed by the two restaurants I tried (thanks to Chowhound recommendations) but it looks like there's potential for lots of good restaurants there. I'm hoping to start a thread where we review several of the restaurants to see what we like and don't like. I'm particularly interested in Korean restaurants.
The first place I tried was Sam Woo BBQ for take out roast duck and roast pig. The roast duck was great, maybe the best I've ever had. I don't eat lot of roast duck but it really stands out for being well seasoned and well cooked. The skin was crispy and the meat tasted great. It went really well with an earthy California pinot noir. The pound of barbecue pork was a mixed lot. Some of it was pretty good. Other was kind of tough. I also got an order of bok choi cooked in garlic. The bok choi itself was fresh and tender. The garlic tended to overwhelm it, though, so all I could taste was garlic. Sam Woo is a chain and it's promising. I'd like to go back and try other items.
