Resorts World’s street food recipes traveled from SE Asia to Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS – What’s it take to bring authentic street food 9,000 miles from hawker stalls in Southeast Asia to a new resort on The Strip?

A kitchen with a laptop, webcam and chefs eager to learn. 

That’s what’s happening behind the scenes at Resorts World Las Vegas, where the hotel-casino is preparing to launch Famous Street Eats — a 24,000-square-foot food market filled with dishes from Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and beyond.

In a video lesson, Famous Foods Street Eats Executive Chef Kevin Hee and assistant chef Angela Ng practiced flipping dough to make authentic Roti Canai from Singapore hawker Springleaf Prata.

In normal times, hawkers would have boarded a plane in Southeast Asia and flown here to teach Vegas chefs the secrets to perfecting the dishes.

COVID-19 made that kind of journey impossible, but the resort opening on June 24 used the power of technology to transfer all that culinary know-how to the Nevada desert.

Here’s how Resorts World found the dishes overseas and transported them here.
