The Downtown Grand Las Vegas has introduced a new eatery with Red Mansion. Helmed by Chef Li Yu, formerly of Beijing Noodle No. 9; guests can expect authentic Beijing-style dishes alongside traditional Chinese tapas.
Chef Yu and his team will offer a menu including pork or shrimp and chive dumplings; scallop and asparagus with X.O. sauce; Sichuan twice-cooked pork, bell pepper with onions; seafood in clay pot (shrimp, scallop, fish fillet, crabs, mushrooms and Napa cabbage in chicken broth) and Ma Po tofu with minced beef or pork.
Chef Yu has been preparing Chinese cuisine for over thirty years. He studied at Beijing Culinary School, where he graduated at the top of his class. After graduation, he worked at the Hwa-Tian Food and Beverage Group for 22 years as the Chinese culinary association director. During this time, at the special request of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China, Chef Yu was charged with creating diplomatic banquets for the Prime Minister of China. He eventually moved to Las Vegas, where he opened Beijing Noodle No. 9 at Caesars Palace as its executive chef.
