Bette Midler Says Go To Las Vegas’ ChinaTown
Jan 18th, 2011

Bette Midler encourages vacationers to dine in Las Vegas off the strip in Chinatown, reports the Los Angeles Times.

In a slide show of some of her favorite things to do while residing in the entertainment capital of the world for her “The Showgirl Must Go On” spectacular, Midler says Chinatown, about a mile from Las Vegas Boulevard has plenty of delicious restaurants to satisfy the palate. And that’s coming from one of the biggest diva’s in the world.

“There’s a huge amount of Asian food here. Huge, huge, huge!” she says. “I highly recommend it… We’ve had wonderful meals there.”

Despite being tucked among strip malls, these Las Vegas restaurants offer a range of cuisine set among authentic Chinese architecture. Many Asian cultures are represented in this neighborhood, as a number of Thai, Japanese, Chinese and Vietnamese restaurants set up shop here.

Midler recommends some specialty dishes worth a try are the Hong Kong-style roast duck, Vietnamese pho noodle soup and fresh sushi. On those hot desert days, Taiwanese boba tea is the perfect refreshment for travelers.

Diners can expect a cab from most Las Vegas hotels to cost about $7 to $10 dollars.

    I am so happy to know that Bette also likes my Asian favorites:) I had never imagined her liking Hong Kong-style roast duck and fresh sushi, but she does and the boba tea too:)
