Best Friend Restaurant Review

:
About the restaurant & décor: Best Friend at Park MGM is from Los Angeles-based chef Roy Choi, and it’s his first Las Vegas restaurant. Diners enter the restaurant through an actual liquor store, which doubles as a bar, with frozen daiquiri machines and shelves stocked with snacks, packaged liquor and household goods that would be found in a convenience store. The décor in the dining room features plants hanging from the ceiling and a wall displaying sketches of faces representing important figures in Choi’s life and career.

About the food: The menu is a fusion of Korean and Mexican, with a focus on braising and barbecuing. Highlights include carnitas tacos with salsa verde; tamarind cod hot pot with tamarind spiced broth, cod and Korean vermicelli noodles; and slippery shrimp: Choi’s version of honey walnut shrimp with the shrimp coated in a creamy, spicy sauce mixed with cilantro, walnuts and sesame seeds.
