Well, we can’t call it a comeback, because Sheridan Su never left. The chef behind Fat Choy and the new Flock & Fowl has become something of a foodie cult figure with locals and visitors alike. Dialed-in food lovers know that Su’s hole-in-the-wall spots are worth a special trip. Su began his career on the Strip and has been doing his own thing since the moment he left it—from a food truck to a bao stand in a nail salon—with virtually no support. The chef persevered until something stuck, and that was Fat Choy in Eureka Casino. And now he’s taking the most subtle food to the masses with Flock & Fowl. Hainanese chicken and rice (a dish he and his wife, Jenny Wong, fell in love with during their travels in China) is a lot like the chef himself: quiet, unassuming and humble. That is, until you get a taste of it, and it completely knocks your socks off with its flavors and nuance.
