Noodles in Bellagio

Our other 4th of July Vegas meal was at Noodles in the Bellagio Hotel. Given that many of these restaurants are usually Americanized, I was pleasantly surprised that this one was pretty good. Although it is hard to tell from the picture, this was one wall of the restaurant that was completed line with jars of noodles, hence, the name. 🙂


Both the ha gow and siu mai were pretty delicious, although much more expensive than you would have at a Chinatown dim sum place. Both tasted authentic and flavorful and used real shrimps (not the ground up stuff that you sometimes get).

This beef dish was decent, but not terribly memorable. I think the pieces were too big and hard to chew on.
This spicy pork noodle soup was not very good. I think the taste was a little off for me. Too spicy and not enough flavor.
I love chow fun, and this dish didn’t disappoint. It had the wok-fried scent and flavor which is something you really find in authentic Cantonese restaurants. It was probably my favorite dish of the meal.
The wonton with egg noodle soup was pretty good as well. The wontons had some very good filling with shrimps, pork and mushrooms. I liked it. The only critique would be that the egg noodles were a little too al dente. I like a slight crunch to the noodles, but not so much where you feel like you need a pair of scissors to cut the noodles.
Overall, the restaurant is a nice little place to get a quick meal. Beware though, although it’s kind of hidden behind the pai gow tables at the Bellagio. Everyone seems to go there, so it can get crowded during peak meal times. Overall, the restaurant serves high quality, authentic-tasting food, but my critique (as it is for most fancy asian restaurants), the bill is a little bit high for the food they serve. Then again, you’re in Las Vegas, so everything in the big hotels is going to be at a premium, so I won’t complain too much. 🙂
