Last week, we were invited to dine at Luk Fu to celebrate lunar new year. Located inside Live! Casino & Hotel near the Baccarat Pit, the culinary team whipped up a special menu in honor of the holiday. For those of you interested, these six dishes will be available until the end of February.
Before we talk about entrees, we’d like to thank Chef Ed Evans, the executive chef at Live, and Adam Yosim for having us. Otherwise known as Jay Z in the kitchen, Chef Ed’s awesome for more reasons than one. He’s a well-known figure in the community, and he does so much to give back. He’s passionate about everything he does, and you can taste it in his food.
To start, we got foie gras and A5 Wagyu nigiri. Not too shabby, eh? Then came the spread: savory snow pea tips with dried scallops ($48), peking style pork chops with sweet and sour sauce ($38), crispy whole silver fish salt and pepper style ($28), sweet mango prawns with cashews and broccoli ($38), seafood medley of shrimp, scallops and cuttlefish with asparagus and XO sauce ($58), and chef’s special dried scallop, scallion and egg white fried rice ($38).
Our favorite dishes were the shrimp, rice and pork chops so definitely try those plates when you go. We love dried scallops so we were thrilled to see this fried rice listed on the menu. The pork was tender and flavorful, and the portion size was quite generous.
The shrimp dish was fairly large as well. Served on a bed of fresh broccoli, the prawns were nice and crispy. Glazed in a beautiful mango sauce, this entree’s perfect for those of you who enjoy sweet and savory flavor combinations.
For those of you interested, Luk Fu also has a special Chinese new year menu that’s available from January 23-31. With everything from tender wok charred lamb to sliced abalone, there’s something for everyone so make sure you go and indulge. Happy eating, Nomsters!
