Executive Chef Sheridan Su is perhaps one of the most well-known off-Strip chefs in Las Vegas. He’s the talent behind the newly opened Every Grain, as well as Flock + Fowl and Fat Choy. While his restaurants are temporarily closed due to the pandemic, you can recreate some of his amazing cooking in the comfort of your own home.
This recipe for vegan dan dan noodles is created by Su using pantry staples.
We are so excited about since we didn’t get to have any of his amazing vegan food from Every Grain before the Las Vegas shut down happened.
If you’ve never been to one of Su’s restaurants, when the city re-opens, add the vegan-friendly Every Grain to your list and see why he was nominated in 2018 and 2019 for “Best Chef” West” by the James Beard Foundation.
