With so many tasty Pan-Asian selections to choose from at Wazuzu, picking just one perfect item is like having only one piece of the fabulous dim sum. So we decided to choose five instead:
1. Drunken noodles. We enjoyed this renowned dish the best with beef, but it’s also popular with shrimp. The tender, bite-size noodles are perfectly cooked and flavored with sweet soy sauce, chilies and onions. A perfect portion size for two, you’ll find this is one of the best noodle dishes in Las Vegas — and probably the best drunken noodles you’ll ever have.
2. The Red Dragon roll. This roll is a perfect combination of spicy tuna, panko shrimp, avocado and cucumber inside-out roll topped with tuna sashimi and rice crackers. It’s a refreshingly light addition to a meal. The roll isn’t overwhelmed with rice, and the crunch is a wonderful texture. It’s beautifully presented on a white ceramic dish artfully placed beside a drizzle of sweet chili and scallion oils.
3. Roti panang. We tried this dish as an appetizer. The perfectly peanut panang sauce with chicken came in a small dish next to cut portions of light, crispy flat bread. An awesome combination.
4. Thai crêpe or ice kachang. If you skipped the appetizer, go with the Thai crêpe so you can try the roti bread drizzled with condensed milk and coconut flakes and topped with a scoop of coconut ice cream. The ice kachang is a surprisingly refreshing dessert of red beans, coconut ice cream and tropical fruit served over shaved ice that arrives in a tall martini glass. You won’t leave the table without scooping out every last bit.
5. The High Roll’er. This original sushi roll of toro, Maine lobster, caviar and crème fraîche is served with lobster miso soup and embellished with edible 23-karat gold. Priced at $100, it’s believed to be one of the most expensive sushi rolls in Las Vegas.
