This week we went to one of our very favorite restaurants--a really funky Asian place that has cuisines from Japan, Korea, China and Thailand. The restaurant itself is super cool--bright lime green walls and flat-screen t.v.s with Asian cartoons everywhere.
There is a whole wall of dichroic glass-lined shelves just covered with fruit.
This fruit is for these amazing drinks which is one of the main reasons we love this place! They are called fruit freezes with tapioca and you can choose from dozens of fruit combinations and also stuff like red beans and taro root to make your perfect drink.
Here's Gooser with his beautifully-colored freeze:
The menu at this place is intense--literally pages and pages long. Although we go here a lot, we have not even come close to tapping into some of the crazy stuff on the menu. We tend to play it safe with stuff we love like:
Japanese beef dumplings (a Pickle fave!):
Thai fish cakes (a Jennifer and Gooser fave!):
Sweet and sour mussels:
Which is an Andy fave:
I have to be very careful with Patrick:
at Asian restaurants, because he has a peanut allergy. So he usually sticks with rice and shrimp tempura:
Pickle loves shrimp too! That's the wrong end Pickle! (She's eating the tail.)
Every time we go here,we always say that we need to branch out with the menu and try some of the more unusual looking items. I love our standbys so much though--but we'll do it one days. Here's just a sample of some entrees (I took the pics from their window display).
Whole fish-- I see a LOT of people order this so it must be great!
And some kind of lobstery looking things:
"Maybe next time, fun Asian place--I know we'll be back soon!"
