So to be totally honest, I wanted to hate this place. Yet, not only did we get great service we had great food. This is when I eat crow. Originally, I was #1 overpriced, #2 style over substance. I was wrong on all accounts.
It does help to bring a friend who is a great Chef.
Could not think of a better Chef to run this. So, nice and kind. Plus the skill to back it up.
So, the part of my problem, is if I am out with friends, I get distracted. Also how many commas can you use:) At least 3:)
Bao ~ Pork belly and chicken.
The one thing I ask from Bao is the dough and it delivered.
Adobo octopus ~ another winner. Sry for the pic quality. When I am with a friend I get distracted. Really good though.
This was a gift from Chef. Baja yellow tail, radish, avocado crema, and the suprise which made the dish, grape fruit.
Dessert ~ I forgot the owners run Ribbon Pizza. Blue Ribbon butterscotch pudding.
*the place is huge it is really 3 restaurants under 1 roof. This is just about the Asain Kitchen. Highly recommend it.
