José Andrés of ThinkFoodGroup scored a winner with China Poblano, located at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, NV. A blend of the best from China and Mexico, you watch tortillas and dumplings being made fresh and right in front of you. I didn’t have anything that I didn’t absolutely love. From the 9-hour cooked buns to the shu mai with quail eggs to mole tacos, everything was ridiculously fresh and flavorful.
This is one of those plates where you have a “moment” out of every bite. It alone is worth returning to Vegas.

With a flair for spontaneity, pizzazz, creative excellence and her own unique sense of aesthetic grace and perspective, we have our very dear friend, Belinda (or B, to some of us). Although an incredibly accomplished professional and career woman, B’s down-to-earth approach and demeanor transcends all scenarios, communities and people. She manifests, in her day-to-day, the essence of the word “Zomppa” as demonstrated by her extraordinary commitment to creating sustainable and positive change for us and future generations to come. She’s asked for a dog every year since she was five. Check out Belinda’s work on global education research and coaching: www.hummingbirdrcc.com or more about her portfolio www.belindachiu.com.
