WuHu Noodle opened on July 3 at the Silverton Casino Hotel. The name means 5 Lakes, a reference to a Northern China region, and the small 44-seat restaurant features a menu of Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and Thai cuisine. Silverton Executive Chef Chris Fearnow said, “We didn’t have any Asian restaurants and WuHu will be marketed more to Asians. Although there are a few dishes that are Americanized, like Honey Walnut Shrimp, most are authentic dishes made fresh and cut by hand, like the handmade dumpling; and there are several vegetarian-friendly and healthy options.”

Dishes are truly authentic, thanks to Executive Room Chef Chung Ping Yu, who began his culinary career in Hong Kong when he was 18 years old and has spent more than 20 years at various hotels and casinos in Las Vegas. He is joined by native Las Vegan Jason Ymson, who gained experience working at a variety of quick service and fine dining venues at numerous hotels and casinos on the Strip and is doing double duty as GM and Room Chef.

Signature dishes include Singapore Noodles with shrimp, shredded pork, egg, bell peppers, bean sprouts, onions and an essence of curry; Shu Mai made with shrimp, pork and black mushrooms; Roasted Duck Cantonese Style; Japanese Ramen choice of shoyu, miso or tontaktsu with BBQ pork, tea-braised soft boiled egg, bamboo shoots, red ginger and mushrooms in a rich broth; and daily dim sum specials. An interactive kitchen viewing area allows guests to individualize their orders and watch chefs prepare their creations. WuHu Noodle is open daily for lunch, dinner and expedited service for diners on the go.
