More than 20 years ago, Las Vegas’ Chinatown began as a single shopping plaza of Spring Mountain Road.
Now, it spans three miles and boasts hundreds of restaurants -- naturally, many of them Chinese.
But the quantity of local Chinese restaurants isn’t nearly as interesting as their quality. Many of them go far beyond the Kung Pow chicken of old -- though many places still offer that, too.
And you can find plenty of options beyond Chinatown -- especially in Downtown and the southwest.
