Chapter 8: Chinatown Las Vegas

If you’re into the food scene here, you know Chinatown Las Vegas is the place to go for some of the best eats in Southern Nevada. 

Our Chinatown is different from the Chinatowns of the past.

In this episode of our podcast about Asian American and Pacific Islander communities, you’ll hear the story behind that 3 mile stretch along Spring Mountain Road, the dark origins of Chinatowns across the U.S., and learn about our podcast’s name.
