Celebrate AAPI Heritage Month With KUBEN Las Vegas

May 27, 2021by Taylor Dodson0

As a way to celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, ZOOO visited a handful of stellar AAPI-owned businesses throughout May! KUBEN is just one of many fantastic local venues. Stay tuned for more recommendations!

If you’re looking for a dependable lunchtime staple, KUBEN is the spot for you. We recently spoke with KUBEN co-owner Kwon about the flavor punch that comes with each and every serving, how the restaurant is perfectly poised to provide lunches during the COVID crisis and beyond, and all that the venue has to offer.

The co-owner of KUBEN Las Vegas poses in front of a green wall decal that reads, "KUBEN".

“My name is Kwon, and I am the co-owner of KUBEN Las Vegas.”

What does KUBEN offer?

Kwon says KUBEN offers, “Bento boxes, bowls, sushi, sashimi, and sushi rolls.” We can attest to that! Our team enjoyed a delectable, diverse tableful of different meals, from yummy chicken teriyaki bowls and Bento boxes to an impressive spread of yellowtail jalapeño sashimi. Kwon continues, “We purchase our ingredients every two days in order to keep the consistency and quality as fresh as possible.” KUBEN’s fish is sourced from Ocean Providence, Maui, and Wismettac Asian Foods. The fresh flavors and textures definitely shined through during our visit!

What are the perks of dining at KUBEN?

Kwon explains, “When the pandemic is over, I feel that life won’t be fully back to normal. Our Bento boxes are great for people who mostly work from home. They can save time on cooking by having it delivered straight [to them].  We encourage dining in, but 90% of the time we offer pick-up and delivery options.”

The ability to have fresh food be readily available during the work day is something that has become a true convenience over the years, but particularly over this past year. Even if you don’t have the time to dine in one afternoon, you can still support a fabulous local business!

Kwon goes on to say, “Our restaurant features Asian-American cuisine. We want to showcase our culture and food to the American people.”

Each dish was crafted with love and care, with impeccable service rounding out a memorable experience. Our team can’t wait to go back to KUBEN for even more protein-packed, tender, and yummy offerings!
