If you have ever been to Vegas, then you will agree that a lot of restaurants in the nicer hotels on the strip (Las Vegas Blvd) are expensive. Must are justifiable, but spending $25 for something I can get for $6-8 is well, absurd. So, finding a reasonably priced Chinese restaurant with good food on the strip is almost impossible. Yes, you can find some but you won't go there again. My friend told me about Ping Pang Pong. Did some 6 yr old child come up with the name, I thought. My friend said-you got to try hot and sour soup. I hate hot and sour soup. He said that I won't regret it.
The restaurant is located in the Gold Coast Hotel which is 1-2 blocks from Rio Hotel. Yes, he was right. I really enjoy the hot and sour soup to my surprise. Also had fried frog legs with sliced green chili peppers, ha-gao, siu-mai, mapo tofu,& quail minced lettucewrap . We had four people.
Portions were big to generous depending on your definition. The food was great! These chefs can cook. Our five dishes came out in 15 min or less. My friend said the quail minced lettucewrap tastes just like the ones in Taiwan. I like to check out the tofu and ha-gao when I go to Chinese restaurants. Since I'm kind of picky and don't like to plug in bad reviews (because why bother telling you, the reader and wasting your time), the mapo tofu was prepared the way I like it- soft tofu, not to thick sauce, not too much meat, you decide your spice level. The ha-gao had a soft and thin skin, perfect. Same with the siu-mai, according to my friend who always order siu-mai. The only negative things are 1) the smoke from the casino- I don't smoke. 2) the staff-they are slightly short of staff, but that is ok. If they hire more staff, prices will go up. Besides, they can barely keep up with the wok chefs. I can wait, but because of the smoke, I recommend sitting in the back or going take out. So, positive review for the food minus the smoke. By the way, they were voted as being among the top ten Chinese restaurants in the US. Not sure if I agree only because I haven't tried all the Chinese restaurants in the US, but it is in the top ten Chinese restaurants that I have visited in the US. Will go again.
