I hit the jackpot when I scored an interview with Chef Jet Tila at Wazuzu, his delicious Asian-fusion bistro at Encore in Las Vegas…
MAKE CHEF JET’S NOODLES AT HOME!
The Drunken Noodles are my favorite! Fresh rice noodles with Thai basil, sweet soy sauce, chilies and onions… and a little magic according to Chef Jet! You might not have a 250,000 BTU Pow Wok at your house, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try Chef Jet’s Drunken Noodles at home. Link to the Drunken Noodle recipe.
CHECK OUT THESE DELICIOUS DISHES!
Wazuzu Pineapple Fried Rice is Thai Jasmine rice, roast duck, Chinese sausage, shrimp and pineapple… served in this half pineapple! Too fun!
The Crunch Roll at Wazuzu is different from any other! Panko crusted shrimp, masago aioli, cucumber and avocado topped with Jasmine rice crackers. Super fresh!
THE WAZUZU DRAGON
Wazuzu has food so delicious you’ll want to sing, and seats so comfortable you’ll want to take your pants off. The ambiance is so luxurious and the service so friendly you’ll want to move in. Sorry, Swarovski crystals not for take-out.
I haven’t yet been to the new Wynn property. The restaurant looks great. Love the part when you give the chef your menu ideas.

The food looks awesome. I would love to try that crunch roll for certain!
Although I’m from Pakistan…. just the other side of your world.. we have different eating habits and styles..but still I like and love your recipes..they are really yummy….
“Craps tuna”? lol Betty befuddles another unsuspecting chef :)

Thanks, Stuart! The Encore is awesome! Definitely worth a check next time you’re in Vegas :)
Thanks, Gera! The cool thing they do too is use the inside of the pineapple for pineapple ice cream! I know that is up your sweet foods alley :)
Thanks Jessie! The Crunch Roll is the bomb! As Chef Jet says, he uses the Japanese Rice Crackers (pearls) on the outside of the roll instead of “old” tempura… or “the dregs” of tempura. Fresh n’ tasty!
HoneyB! Everything jet prepares is wonderful – I bet even Grumpy would approve!
Hamid, I love that you come to my little website all the way from Pakistan… I bet we could agree on a few things over dinner :)
truthbeknown! Thanks for dropping by my site! Glad you like the Craps Tuna line – I do think I caught Chef Jet off guard with that one, but he knew what I was up to ;)
I was just at Wazuzu a few nights ago and had the Drunken Noodles with beef. FANTASTIC!! It was so delicious I knew I had to have the recipe. I was thrilled with finding the recipe and even a video as a bonus. The others in my party had the panang curry, unagi rice bowl and crispy fish. Everything was wonderful except the fish was a little fishy tasting. Thanks for providing the recipe since I can’t fly back to Las Vegas just for that dish. I’ll be making it at home here in Seattle. Thanks again!
Am I seeing the right recipe for the drunken noodles? The ingredients call for chicken & beef I think, but I didn’t see him add any meat, but he did add shrimp, but that isn’t included on the ingredient list… Also he stated that he couldn’t tell us all that was in that sauce…. It ooks yummy though. I wonder if that restaurant & chef are still there.
oops that’s *looks*

This is the recipe that Chef Jet supplied me with; the meats in any dish can change and you’d still have the same basic idea. And take a closer look at the recipe — I think all the “other” sauces he mentioned are listed there (such as oyster sauce, etc.).
Chef Jet Tila is now in Los Angeles at The Charleston: http://charlestonla.com/ and we feel so lucky to have him here!
