EXTRA! EXTRA! THIS MAMA'S HOUSE debuts at the Vegas Test Kitchen!

The Vegas Test Kitchen welcomes their newest concept, "This Mama's House" by Crystina Nguyen aka Mama.



Having immigrated to the US from Vietnam at just three months old, "Mama" Crystina grew up up in an adopted culture that wholly revolved around the American Dream. Growing up in New England, it was "very American: meat and potatoes... and sports. [And,] I had no clue what real Vietnamese food was. What’s pho? What’s banh mi?"

It was the move to a big city for college that opened up Crystina to what food and culture could truly create: connection. "That’s when I knew I had a passion for food, all kinds of food, especially Vietnamese. Everything in life is all about balance, especially flavors, and that’s when I brought everything I was experiencing into the kitchen."

Mama didn't just fall in love with foodservice and the food industry, she embodies it, epitomizes it. Mama Crystina earned her nickname over 20 years of working in, knowing, and taking care of her beloved food service industry and its people. She knows, she cares, and she never lets anyone walk away hungry.


At the Vegas Test Kitchen in downtown Las Vegas, Mama will soon be offering her own delicious brand of comfort food with items such as:

* Banh Mi (on baguette or gluten-free wrap)
Choices include:
- Vietnamese pork, ham, mortadella, head cheese, and pate
- BBQ pork and pate
- Chicken
- Tofu

* Surf and Turf Vermicelli Bowl
* Variety of salads
