I must confess, I’m a bit embarrassed to say that I first heard of Mr. Chow’s not because of its food, but because of the numerous celebrity sightings there. For some reason, it seemed like rich and famous celebrities loved dining at Mr. Chow, and paparazzi were always ready to snap a photo or two. The restaurant name came up so often that I started to recognize it. I didn’t live in Beverly Hills, so I had no clue what kind of Chinese restaurant would command such popularity with Hollywood’s hottest stars.
Years went by. I totally forgot about Mr. Chow. I probably got busy with things in life like law school, the blog, and other activities.
And then one day about 4 years ago, we spotted it in Beverly Hills while touring Los Angeles with my parents, sister, and brother-in-law. I snapped a photo of it, remembering that it was famous. I proceeded to forget about it again until this past Las Vegas trip. I found out that a Mr. Chow had just opened a new location at Caesar’s Palace in 2015. I was very curious to see what made Mr. Chow so popular with celebrities who could afford pretty much anything for dinner….
