Munchies Guide to Las Vegas: Off The Strip

Steve Chu, chef and co-owner of Ekiben in Baltimore, MD traveled with MUNCHIES to explore all things Las Vegas Strip-adjacent and lesser known, where he experiences the more “local” side of Las Vegas food and entertainment. He discovered an alien-themed brothel, authentic Italian food right near the airport, and a tiki bar hidden in the heart of Vegas’ Chinatown.

  1. Holy f***ing clickbait much… anyone else forget why they came here, almost change the video & then Andrew came in to save the day, for (a whopping) 5 minutes?

  2. I’m in Chinatown all of the time for meetings, it’s Vegas’ best kept secret. I was just by Golden Tiki last night and the line to get in seemed longer than normal. That whole shopping center is a blast, I always take friends there when they’re visiting.

  3. Hey Andrew – it’s time to level up and go for a laser skin peel my man. It’ll help your face clear up over night. No need to let it get away from you with scaring and what not. Anyway, thanks for the content homie 👍🏼🤘🏼

  4. Born and Raised in Las Vegas.. I love my city. Milano is such a great restaurant! But, when they said "there is little authentic Italian food here" is so false lmao Vegas has had a lot of authentic Italian cuisine dating back to the 1980's. Do not want to say anything bad about this restaurant. It's extremely amazing!! shout out Milano at Town Square Las Vegas

    Also Golden Tiki is not a dive bar for locals. that's a historic spot within chinatown lmao Andrew is awesome.

  5. Interesting…alien brothel. On my last trip through the southwest I hit Baker CA on my way back to Vegas and they have gone crazy with an Alien Jerky complex. Looks like they are building an alien theme mall.
