Yu-Yu

It’s Japanese street food time: Breaded and fried skewers of meat and vegetables are the specialty at this kushi-age house, but everything’s lighter and crispier than it sounds. Choices range from lotus root to bacon-wrapped asparagus to octopus. The dinner menu is more varied with sashimi, udon noodle dishes and more. 4115 Spring Mountain Road #E101, 220-4223. Daily; lunch, 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.; dinner, 6 p.m.-1 a.m.

Shaanxi Gourmet

This San Gabriel Valley transplant is in the same shopping center as China Mama and Chada Thai and is likely the only place in Vegas to get food from the northwest Chinese province of Shaanxi, pungently sour and spicy with prominent pork and lamb. Test out the gnocchi-like noodle nuggets, chicken gizzards, pig kidneys and pita bread soaked in lamb soup. What? 3400 S. Jones Blvd. #16, 586-3311. Daily, 10 a.m.-10 p.m.

Bund Shanghai

There are lots of regional Chinese foods, so let’s try a new one. Bund does Shanghai or Hu cuisine, highlighted by salty flavors like soy-braised or “drunken” meats. Lunch specials are for scaredy cats. Check out clay pot chicken, cold Shanghai-style duck, crispy fried pork shank or pork tendon in crab sauce. 3545 S. Decatur Blvd. #A, 272-1777. Daily, 11 a.m.-10 p.m.
