Spicy tuna “tacos” made with crispy salmon skin and pickled jalapeños. Funky, caramelized kimchi. Chinese lamb skewers with cumin, coconut and cucumber. Garlic-butter broth ramen with shrimp and crispy leeks. This is the ultra-cool street food of Yusho, as hip and flavorful as it gets. And yes, it’s on the Las Vegas Strip—literally on Las Vegas Boulevard, a vibrant part of the Monte Carlo’s BLVD Plaza fun food scene.

Everybody knows Vegas food can hang with any other city’s cuisine, but the Strip’s dining scene is still known more for fine dining than edgy eats. Chicago transplant Yusho shatters that perception, and, as it’s located just steps from the coming-soon.

T-Mobile Arena, its secret-star status is about to explode. Fearless and wildly creative, Yusho’s irresistible snacks (don’t miss the fusion-ish crispy cod or chicken steamed buns), legendary ramen and addictive grilled dishes offer a reinvention of street food, on a big, famous street that needed it most. Yusho at Monte Carlo, 702-730-6888, Sunday-Thursday 5-11 p.m., Friday & Saturday 5 p.m.-1 a.m.
