Max Jacobson’s seven favorite ethnic restaurants

We didn’t have to go far to find this expert; he’s Vegas Seven’s food critic and Vegas’ best judge of ethnic cuisine.

  1. Los Antojos (Mexican). A little dive with great heart and lots of authentic street dishes.
    2520 S. Eastern Ave.
  2. China Mama (Chinese). Great cold dishes, and the best Chinese dumplings in town.
    3420 S. Jones Blvd.
  3. Mi Peru (Peruvian). A little-known cuisine waiting to be discovered. They have great rotisserie chicken on weekends.
    1450 W. Horizon Ridge Parkway.
  4. Bosa 1 (Vietnamese). Surely the best Vietnamese cooking in town, specializing in “broken rice” plates.
    3400 S. Jones Blvd., Suite 2A.
  5. Monta Noodle House (Japanese). You are likely to be the only Caucasian slurping in this ramen shop.
    5030 Spring Mountain Road.
  6. Honey Pig (Korean). First you choose your meats and vegetables, then everything is cooked for you by a team of hard-working waitresses.
    4725 Spring Mountain Road.
  7. Rincon de Buenos Aires (Argentinean). Great barbecue, empanadas and lots of soccer-mad fans congregating for live games.
    5300 Spring Mountain Road.
