99 Noodles

Located in the Encore gaming hall, 99 Noodles specializes in delicious Chinese regional hand-pulled and cut noodle dishes in a fanciful Chinoiserie-inspired environment.
 
Stepping into 99 Noodles, guests enter the elegant world of 18th -century French Chinoiserie, in which the design motifs of the Orient were interpreted by Europeans. The French Chinoiserie inspiration reveals itself in the intimate environment through motifs of golden bells, calligraphy and golden Parisian birds, creating an environment of exquisite comfort.
 
Giant colorful chopsticks crisscross the walls as a playful tribute to the eating utensil of choice in the restaurant. With this colorful “dance of the chopsticks” all around, the bright, colorful environment is a perfect accompaniment to delicious noodles.
 
99 Noodles features an interactive menu offering guests an opportunity to create their own noodle dishes with a choice of nine artisan hand cut noodles, nine sumptuous hot broths and a selection of garnishes and sauces. 99 Noodles also features appetizers and specialty dishes from the Northern provinces.

Prior to joining Wynn Macau, Chef Liu headed the opening team of the Kai Xuan northern Chinese restaurant at the Hong Kong Jockey Club in Beijing and served as its Chinese Executive Chef for two years.

In 2007, Chef Liu became Chinese Executive Chef for the Kai Xuan northern Chinese restaurant at the Hong Kong Jockey Club in Beijing. As one of the capital’s most exclusive restaurants, Kai Xuan often attracted many renowned celebrities.
 
Then in 2009, Chef Liu joined Wynn Macau, where he was instrumental in the opening of Golden Flower as Chef de Cuisine.
