Kung Fu Thai and Chinese Restaurant raises the bar in making great drinks with state of the Art Ice Machine
The longest standing Thai and Chinese Restaurant in Las Vegas, Kung Fu Plaza, is raising the bar on customer service once again by installing one of the most advanced commercial ice makers in the food service industry. The Manitowoc Indigo Series 1000 ice machine model is an ice maker that’s innovatively engineered to be energy efficient, along with advance intelligent diagnostics, and most importantly, incorporating advanced sanitation technologies proprietary to Manitowoc Ice Inc. Designed and manufactured in the U.S.A. since 1964, in the city of Manitowoc located in east central Wisconsin on Lake Michigan, Manitowoc Ice has a long standing corporate philosophy of producing the least costly ice machines to operate, while at the same time incorporating technologies that emphasize food safety.
Asian dishes exceeding over 800 items to choose from every day, available to diners at Kung Fu Thai & Chinese restaurant, the last thing on anyone’s mind you would think is ice. Indeed keeping tabs on every provision that supports this vast menu of 800 plus Thai and Chinese delicacies is a daunting task in and of itself. Today most owners and or operators of restaurants in Las Vegas won’t even give a second thought to the ice that’s being served up in their establishments, much less to their ice machines. The fact is, that an old and or outdated Ice maker, even a cheap one are very vulnerable to contamination, which in and of itself could lead to poor beverage taste, and quality, not to mention pose health risks to its patrons. Not only does the quality of Ice lead to bad taste in drinks, but it can also effect the meal being served in the restaurant as well. Since most vegetables, meats, poultry, and seafood items are required to be kept at cool temperatures, toping ice on these provisions while they are being prepared is vital to good food handling procedures. As the ice is being topped, melted, and absorbed by the meats, seafood, and or vegetables, having good quality ice is also extremely vital to the eventual taste of these foods. That is why we continually endeavor to provide our patrons with the cleanest ice in the City of Lights, Las Vegas, Nevada.
Producing the Cleanest ice in Las Vegas requires the incorporation of “Luminice”, the sanitation component of the Manitowoc Ice machine. Luminice works by constantly recirculating the air present inside the ice maker over an ultra violet light. Much like a medical office sanitizing their instruments over ultra violet light, the ice machine at Kung Fu Restaurant sanitizes the air in the ice machine over the same light source. According to Manitowoc Ice Inc, this state of the art process has been proven in independent lab tests to produce a much cleaner, clearer, and safer ice. In addition, every plastic component used in the ice maker has been treated with a antimicrobial additive.
Serving the Best Drinks in Las Vegas doesn’t just stop with having the best Ice Machine, the water coming into the ice maker makes a world of difference. Even though the municipality water delivered by the Las Vegas Valley Water District meets or exceeds both State of Nevada and the Federal Government Safe Drinking Water Act Guidelines, Kung Fu Restaurant works harder for patrons that frequent this Asian Restaurant by treating the water before entering the ice machine with the Best Commercial Water purification system on the market.
This locals favorite restaurant in Las Vegas treats the water used to make ice with the Everpure “Insurice” i2000² water purification system. Before entering the ice machine, water goes through the Insurice filtering system, where it reduces microscopic dirt as small as ½ micron in size with its Pre-coat submicron technology, which in addition further reduces health contaminants in the water such as cysts. The system also removes any dissolved minerals left over from the municipality filtration process, which could cause scale build up in the ice maker. In addition the media inside the filter cartridges inhibits the growth of bacteria, reduces chlorine taste and odor along with eliminating any impurities. “Having this system makes us proud that we’re serving the cleanest ice to our customers”, remarks Wong, General Manager of Kung Fu Restaurant.
Most Diners want to know if the eating establishment they are about to visit, filters their water, at least that’s what a survey revealed. “Does this restaurant in Las Vegas have a water filtration system”? That’s a similar question that was asked back in 2006 when Everpure conducted a survey of diners, which asked the question; if they ever wanted to know if a restaurant they are about to dine at, has a filtration system hooked up to their drinking water dispenser. According to the results of the survey just about 7 out of 10 respondents indicated that they wanted that knowledge.
Having the Best Ice Machine in Las Vegas, doesn’t just stop with producing clean Ice. The ice machine at Kung Fu Thai & Chinese Restaurant also have advanced features such as intelligent diagnostics, which provides real time data, as well as a patented self cleaning mechanism that automatically cleans the ice maker on a set interval, and the unit has incorporated energy efficient features making it Energy Star Certified.
