Dim Sum in Las Vegas

Chef Ray Kwong, the new Executive Chef at WuHu Noodle, is passionate about dim sum!

Las Vegas |Dim Sum

Beginning this week, a new “dim sum” section has been added to the Wu Hu menu, providing a new place for dim sum in Las Vegas.  The menu includes some of Chef’s favorites including the Chives Cake, the steamed Xiao Long Bao (Soup Dumplings), and a unique Turnip Cake, which reminds us of the best hash-brown patty you’ve ever had.

Chef Ray — who grew up in Hong Kong — has held various positions in Las Vegas, including Executive Chef at Wynn Resorts and Luxor,  Assistant Chef de Cuisine at Caesars Palace, and oversaw the culinary operations of three Asian restaurants at Palms: Tim Ho Wan, Fortune, and Little Buddha.

If you are also interested in trying some of Chef’s specialties, we also recommend the new “Chef’s Special Wok” section of the menu.  Here, you will find new entrées that everybody is raving about — including the Candied Walnut Shrimp and the Black Pepper Beef Ribeye.

What is Dim Sum?

Dim sum is a large range of small Chinese dishes that are traditionally enjoyed in restaurants for brunch. Most modern dim sum dishes are commonly associated with Cantonese cuisine, although dim sum dishes also exist in other Chinese cuisines. Similar to the way that the Spanish eat tapas, dim sum dishes are shared among family and friends.

 

WuHu Noodle at Silverton Casino brings you authentic Asian recipes and traditional favorites. Locals know that this is the place for noodles in Las Vegas.  It features authentic regional noodle dishes from all over Asia. WuHu has been called one of the best restaurants on Blue Diamond Road in Las Vegas.

New Las Vegas Mermaid School

What’s one of the most often asked question we receive?

“How can I be a mermaid?”

The Silverton mermaids — the mythical creatures that swim in our aquarium — have definitely put our resort on the map.  And why not?  Legend has it that spotting a mermaid would bring good luck to sailors.  We hear it also works for gamblers in our casino.

But how can a guest join the ranks of these amazing creatures?

As of this week, you now have an opportunity to put on some fins and become a mermaid yourself… for at least a morning!

The new Mermaid School for Adults (for ages 19 and older) and Mermaid School for Teens (for ages 13-18) gives you that opportunity.  These two new classes join Mermaid School for Kids (for ages 7-12), a program we launched in 2019.

Las Vegas Mermaid School

As part of the magical 90-minute Las Vegas Mermaid School experience, fans are transformed into a famed Silverton mermaid and swim in the casino’s 117,000-gallon aquarium, along with thousands of tropical fish and rays.

 Each session includes:

  • A mermaid “warm up” class
  • A Mermaid School photo op
  • A mermaid swim in the aquarium with a tail (sizes available up to XXXL)
  • A behind-the-scenes tour of the aquarium and the sea life that lives within it
  • A voucher for a free post-class mimosa at a casino bar (for participants age 21+)
  • A voucher for a free post-class scoop of gelato at Sundance Grill  (for participants ages 19 or 20)
  • A voucher for 15 percent discount on breakfast or brunch at Sundance Grill
  • And, of course, the experience of a lifetime.

All equipment, including goggles, is provided.  Participants need only bring a swimsuit or towel.  Reservations must be booked at least 24 hours in advance. There is a minimum of two participants per class and a maximum of four.   Note:  this program is intended for participants who are strong swimmers. This is not a scuba program.  Mermaid tails are available up to size XXXL.

Meet our New Executive Chef

Chef Nick BeesleyPlease join us in welcoming our new Executive Chef, Nicholas Beesley. 

In his role, Chef is in the creative inspiration behind the entire culinary operation at Silverton Hotel & Casino.

Chef Nick comes to us with a wealth of culinary experience; most recently from Aliante Hotel & Casino where he held the same role.  Prior to Aliante, Chef held leadership positions at JW Marriot Resort in Summerlin, Caesars Palace, and various other properties in the Midwest.

Culinary has been a passion of Chef Nick since his first job as a bagel baker at Bagel Café in Las Vegas. In fact, he likes to pop in the café frequently to taste some of his favorite recipes that has been served since the restaurant opened.

Chef Nick is also a huge Raiders fan and has seen them play in three different stadiums: Soldiers Field in Chicago, Coliseum in Oakland and here at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

One of his proudest moments?  When he was working at RAO’s restaurant, Chef Nick won a burger challenge at Caesars Palace against all the chefs at the resort.  His entry was the perfect Italian burger — a beef and veal burger with thick cut of fresh mozzarella cheese, roasted red pepper aioli and arugula, served with cherry peppers and kettle chips.  That same recipe was published in a cookbook from the owner the restaurant, called “RAO’s on the Grill with Frank Pellegrino Jr.”

A Las Vegas local won big on the slots  last night at Silverton Casino.

The Dollar Storm Super Grand Progressive machine paid off a $241,347.49 jackpot to the player, who was betting on the nickel machine when she hit the wide-area progressive.

The player, a so-called “progressive chaser” who calls herself a “regular” at Silverton Casino, did not wish to release her name.

Dollar Storm™ games from Aristocrat are popular at Silverton Casino, giving players a chance to battle with pirates, go to ancient Egypt and travel the Orient in these exciting Hold & Spin slot machines.   Dollar Storm is part of the wildly popular Lightning Link™ series from Aristocrat.  Silverton Casino features the first Lightning Link Lounge opened in Nevada, making it a popular destination for “progressive chasers” and slot machine enthusiasts.
