Upscale Interpretations of Classic Chinese Cuisine
At Wing Lei, Chef Ming Yu’s menu showcases Cantonese, Szechuan, and Shanghai cuisine at its finest. His passion for authentic cuisine, inspired renditions, and expert skill shines through in every dish. He recommends ordering several plates to be shared family-style so you can enjoy an array of delectable creations.
The following sections explore the menu and highlight some of Wing Lei’s most outstanding dishes to help you plan the perfect meal.
The Menu at Wing Lei Las Vegas
While Wing Lei offers a collection of traditional cuisines like Pan-Seared Potstickers and Crispy Shrimp Toast, they also prepare various reimagined plates that showcase their culinary excellence.
A house specialty, the Alaskan King Crab Salad, is served with mango, avocado, and a flavorful miso-yuzu dressing. The Garden Dim Sum with red beet, corn, spinach, and pea tendrils is another fan favorite. Finally, if you’re overwhelmed by all the delectable options, the Win Lei Sampler comes with three of their best appetizers and is perfectly portioned for sharing with another person.
The soups at Wing Lei are nothing short of amazing. With rich broths, premium ingredients, and elevated flavors, they make an excellent transition between starters and main courses. Choose between Cantonese Wonton Soup and Seafood Hot & Sour Soup. Either way, you won’t be disappointed.
The live seafood selections at Wing Lei are sourced from places around the globe and made to order, ensuring the freshest seafood possible in a land-locked state. One of the most popular choices is the Maine Lobster, which can be wok-fried to perfection. Other live selections include Alaskan Geoduck Clam, Washington Dungeness Crab, Australian Coral Cod, Pacific Red Cod, Cambodian Goby, and Alaskan King Crab.
In addition to Live Seafood, Wing Lei prepares an assortment of other seafood dishes; all served at peak freshness. These plates feature decadent sauces and include complimentary Chinese flavors such as garlic, ginger, scallions, and sweet soy. I recommend the Wok Fried Scallop with black truffle, Chinese sausage, mushrooms, and sugar peas. Or, if you like spicy foods, the Peppercorn Chili Prawn with a mix of bell peppers, chili pepper, and garlic makes a fantastic choice.
Premium meats fill the next section of the menu. From their Japanese or American Wagyu Beef to their Braised Pork Belly, you can expect the finest, juiciest cuts. The Garlic Beef Tenderloin, a house specialty, is another top recommendation. It is served with heirloom bell peppers, seasonal mushrooms, sugar peas, and a savory black pepper sauce. Other meat entrees include Sichuan Beef Short Ribs and Crispy Pork with Sweet & Sour Sauce.
By far, the most sought-out menu item at Wing Lei is their Imperial Peking Duck. It is prepared using a traditional recipe and comes with mandarin crepes or steamed buns, cucumber, scallions, and hoisin sauce. The duck is sustainably sourced and expertly prepared, resulting in tender, melting meat. It is also carved tableside, so you enjoy the aromas and final preparation first-hand.
Additional poultry offerings include Free Range Chicken with Chili-Garlic Sauce, Lemon Chicken, and General Tao’s Chicken.
Adding a noodle or rice plate to your table’s selections is also strongly recommended. They prepare classic fried rice dishes like Vegetable Fried Rice and Yang Chow Fried Rice, as well as a more unique Braised Seafood Curry Rice. My favorite is the Cantonese Chow Mein served with onions, cabbage, and scallions.
The vegetable dishes on the menu are for more than just vegetarians. They feature savory, rich sauces, vibrant flavors, and perfectly complement the more meat-centered menu selections. So, even if you don’t have a plant-based diet, you’ll still want to try one. Choose between Wok-Tossed Mushrooms, Sauteed Mixed Vegetables, Three Cup Eggplant, Sauteed Green Beans, and Braised Tofu.
Chef Ming’s Signature Dinner and Imperial Peking Duck Tasting
Wing Lei also has two special, pre-coursed menus that showcase their best cuisine. Both menus require full table participation. The first is Chef Ming’s Signature Dinner. The dishes served with this five-course meal change seasonally, so no matter when you visit, you can expect peak freshness and optimal flavor in every bite.
Many diners agree that the highlight of the entire Wing Lei menu is the Imperial Peking Duck Tasting. It comes with their famous Table-Carved Peking Duck, Peking Duck Salad, Duck Shu Mai, Duck with Braised Eggplant, Duck Fried Rice, and a Chef’s Dessert Selection. You can also add a wine pairing for an upcharge.
At Wing Lei, you can enjoy a range of spirits, fine sakes, and 550 wine selections from their full bar. They prepare a collection of signature cocktails made with Asian spirits, fresh ingredients, and flavors like lemongrass, ginger, and hibiscus. In addition, Sommelier Diego Vasquez can help you pick the perfect wine to pair with your meal.
