Las Vegas finally landed its first conveyor belt restaurant, serving Mongolian-style hot pots in Chinatown. Chubby Cattle comes from owner Harby Yang, who grew up in Inner Mongolia, where his family operated a hot pot restaurant.
The $1 million restaurant features 3,600 square feet that seats 160 and features a waterfall, a custom-designed 3D recessed sky ceiling, custom made hand cut granite tables with induction cookers, specially designed under-the-table cell phone holders, private VIP rooms and a custom built fish tank that holds live seafood the chefs cook. A dozen high definition flat screens show videos of Chinese cooking, art, history, music videos, culture and more.
The restaurant serves chicken, lamb, beef brisket, rib-eye steak, pork, tripe, live geoduck, live shrimp, live king crab, live Vancouver crab, scallops, bass, clams, more than a dozen vegetables, tofu, noodles, rice, dumplings, house-made dessert and more.
The broth here is a soup base, made from a “special and secret recipe” that is slow simmered daily for eights hours before served.
The restaurant is a partnership between Little Lamb, the international restaurant that operates nearly 600 locations worldwide, and NXTFactor, an international digital agency and investment firm.
