February 20, 2013 by VegasNews.com
In its most prestigious recognition to date, Ping Pang Pong at the Gold Coast Hotel and Casino has been named one of the “Best Chinese Restaurants in the United States” by Travel+Leisure magazine.
The popular Asian cuisine hotspot was the only Las Vegas restaurant to be recognized by Travel+Leisure in the listing.
Travel+Leisure wrote: “…you’ll find regional specialties from across China, from dim sum served on pushcarts (Cantonese) to salt-and-pepper frog legs (Sichuan) and double-braised scallop hot pot (found throughout China). The night market fried rice is another standout, a satisfying mix of tender beef tossed with chiles, bean sprouts, and tomatoes. No matter which region they’re from, Chinese in Vegas can likely find their hometown specialties here.”
“Karrie Hung and Kevin Wu have created something very special at Ping Pang Pong: An authentic Chinese dining experience without rival in the Las Vegas Valley,” said Kerrie Burke, Vice President and General Manager of the Gold Coast. “Since opening its doors 12 years ago, Ping Pang Pong has become an essential part of the Gold Coast experience. We are tremendously proud of Karrie and Kevin’s latest accomplishment, and look forward to continuing our partnership for years to come.”
In addition to Ping Pang Pong, Hung and Wu also operate Noodle Exchange at the Gold Coast, which features an array of noodle and rice dishes, including its popular mini hot pots.
