Mikiya Wagyu Shabu House plans to open soon at 3930 Spring Mountain Road, in Chinatown. The restaurant is a project of Chubby Cattle International, a hospitality group founded in 2015 in Vegas by David Zhao and Haibin Yang, who were named to Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in 2022 for food and drink.
Chubby Cattle specializes in technology enabled food and drink spots. The group has a partnership with Masami Cattle Ranch of Northern California to raise free-range Japanese wagyu cattle, with a proprietary feed program, to supply its restaurants with beef. The new Mikiya will be anchored by all-you-can-enjoy wagyu shabu hot pot.
Chubby Cattle group is also planning an all-you-can-enjoy Chubby Cattle yakiniku (grilled meat) spot at 4525 Spring Mountain Road, as reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal in July. The other Vegas restaurants in the multi-state Chubby portfolio are the original Chubby Cattle on South Jones Boulevard and The X Pot in The Venetian. Visit chubbycattle.com.
