Random Asian Dishes from My Old Phone
I got a new phone a few weeks ago and finally sat down and pulled all the old pictures off my phone onto my computer. It had a decent camera but a lot of the pictures that I took at restaurants were out-of-focus or weirdly colored or just plain bad. It seemed that only one picture from all of the pictures I took of a meal turned out so I figured I would share the best of them with you.
I am definitely going to be writing a full post about David’s Dumpling & Noodle Bar on Hillsborough Street in Raleigh but I figured that I would go ahead and share one of the old pictures that I took with my old phone when I ate there a while back. I have been there a few times and tried a bunch of the dumplings plus the moo shu pork and a few other dishes including the Hunan Beef, pictured above. It had a large kick of spice in it and came with rice. The portion was huge and I’d go for it again although there are quite a few more items that I want to try on the menu.
I went to Sushi O on a random night with friends for some sake and sushi a few weeks ago. It is also in Raleigh and located in the Glenwood South neighborhood. I ordered two of the special rolls that night and some warm sake. One was a shrimp tempura roll with green onions and the other was the spider roll which has soft shell crab, eel sauce and a few other things. Both were great but I need to start ordering with more simplicity. I feel like I always end up getting ordered stuff that is either way too deep fried or just covered in tons of sauces.
I went to Pho Far East in Raleigh off of Capital Boulevard a few weeks ago with my buddy, Ben, and ordered a beef and vermicelli noodle dish that came with a spring roll and julienned vegetables. I know…I know…I should have ordered the pho. It was warm and I wasn’t really feeling a soup. Next time. This place is definitely worth checking out. It is a medium-sized restaurant and gets kind of busy so be prepared.
