The growth of Asian vegan restaurants in Las Vegas
Chef Kenny’s Asian Vegan Dim Sum is one vegan restaurant in a string of vegan restaurants like Chikyū Vegan Sushi and Daikon Vegan Sushi that have opened during the pandemic.
It also marks the sixth all-vegan Asian restaurant in Las Vegas. Others include VeggiEat Xpress (two locations) and Veggie House.
“It was the right timing and right location,” explains Chye regarding his opening.
In addition, the vegan sushi scene continues to grow with the opening of Chye’s new restaurant.
Every vegan Asian restaurant in Las Vegas offers sushi.
From creative options like Chikyu, to all-you-can-eat at VeggiEat Xpress to Chye’s veganizing of popular rolls like eel, there’s never been more vegan options for sushi in Las Vegas.
Chye also has an outpost of his flagship restaurant in Houston, Tex. It recently celebrated its one-year anniversary. He’s also posted about opening a new restaurant in Park City, Utah.
