If you’re on a lucky streak
You remembered to split the eights, and you were rewarded when you risked it by asking for a hit at 17. Now you’ve got a pocketful of chips and an empty stomach, so you need a quick break before you head back out to the pit.
The Restaurant: Noodles of the World, AKA N.O.W., is right on the main casino floor -- so you’ll be back to your table before it cools off. The menu features Thai, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean specialties in a sleek, modern space. Plus, they’re open late.
The Dish: Chicken Pad Thai is a classic, and N.O.W.’s version does not disappoint. Wide rice noodles, chicken, egg, scallions, bean sprouts, and peanuts are tossed with sesame oil and a spicy fish sauce, giving the dish a slight kick. If you’re hungry enough for an app too, the bacon roll features ground shrimp wrapped in bacon and served with a wasabi cream sauce for dipping.
