Veggie House is a cornerstone in the Las Vegas community and has been recognized for its outstanding Vegan/Vegetarian Chinese cuisine, excellent service and friendly staff.
This wonderful vegan/vegetarian restaurant offers delicious dining, takeout and delivery to Las Vegas, NV. Veggie House is known for its modern interpretation of classic dishes and its insistence on only using high quality, fresh ingredients.
Chef Kenny opened this restaurant in April of 2012 and it has been booming ever since. It’s one of the most talked about Vegan restaurants in the Las Vegas valley. Everywhere I go people are talking about Veggie House and recommending their favorite dishes (which is pretty much everything and anything on the menu).
About Chef Kenny Chye
The man behind these magically delicious and healthful dishes is Kenny Chye. Originally from Malaysia, Chye lived in Southern California for 15 years, where he was chef-owner of three restaurants. He moved to Vegas in 2001 and shifted gears, starting a meat and seafood wholesale business, supplying hotels and restaurants with fresh, high-quality product— and got more than he bargained for. “When you’re selling a lot of meat, you have to eat a lot of meat, right? I’d been eating rich food for so long that my cholesterol was very high,” Chye says. “I would sometimes eat 22 ounces of prime rib at a time. Now I don’t touch it.”
Chye needed to make a serious change in his lifestyle to get healthy. He consulted with a vegetarian friend, and when he became a vegetarian himself, the results were so good, he turned into a proselytizer. “I wanted to open a veggie restaurant for my health, but also so I can help other people,” he says. “I know there are people who are trying to be healthy but want good taste and good texture, just no meat.”
Creating exactly that is easier said than done. Knowing that diners would expect more than just steamed or stir-fried vegetables, Chye went to work like a mad scientist, devising food that looks, smells, feels, and tastes like beef, pork, chicken, and fish. “There were a lot of trials,” he says. “It took a month and a half to finalize what we use for our roasted pork dish, one of our most popular. And I’m a very picky guy.”
