    Default Asian Food

    Anyone else like Asian food? I like Chinese (All sorts of stuff), Thai (Pad), Vietnamese (Pho), and Korean (BBQ and rice cakes). Not a fan of Sushi or any of it's offshoots.

    LOVE Asian food. I love Thai food the best.

    I am making this for supper. But will use a teenie tiny serrano, no red bell pepper, and no cilantro - parsley instead. I am using purple cabbabe, and savoy cabbage. Will add some grilled shrimp before serving!

    I love rice cakes. Plain are really good. imo.

    Lex being that your location is "in the South Pacific" (wink wink) you should have some good recipes.

    Yesssssss. I love Asian food with the same fervor as some love Italian food. I am very fond of Vietnamese, Thai, and Japanese food - especially sushi.
    Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

    I like ginger, garlic, coconut milk, curry, and fresh veggies. So most Asian cuisine is right up my alley!

    I do like sushi though. A lot.

    Good, because I wanna take you to the new Asian bistro that just opened down the road from your work. I got the menu today and it looks like it's right up your alley. Tons of Sushi for you and lots of Chinese for me.

    Love it! I stocked up on buns at the Chinese bakery yesterday. Just polished off a taro bun. It was delish.

    There is a special place in my heart for anything combining noodles, tofu, and vegetables. Pho and udon are regular staples of my diet.

    LOVE IT!!! Was gifted with my still-going-strong authentic carbon-steel wok back in 1974 & both it & my rice-cooker get at least weekly use here.

    Chinese is my top favorite, but other Asian cuisines get occasional table time as well. I must have at least 50 cookbooks for all of them kicking around here.

    But when dining out - Japanese usually tops Chinese, since I'm a big-time sashimi lover, which is something I'm not interested in tackling at home.

    Deal! My work schedule doesn't leave much open for lunch this week. But next week might work. I'm not going to Rolex now so I've picked up some extra hours this week. Grrr.

    Love pretty much all of it- esp sushi. Of course, many of my relatives are Asian, so we eat it often in my family

    Well, next week I have to deal with all the unnecessary relatives coming in on Tuesday for the wedding. We can always do dinner if that works better for you.

    Okay, all you Asian food aficionados, what would you serve as an appetizer and dessert to go with an Asian dinner? And what about beverages?

    I'd serve meat/veggie Potstickers/dumplings as an appetizer. I don't know what you'd serve for dessert. Many people don't consumer Asian drinks with Asian meals so I guess you'd serve whatever people liked. Even in the Asian restaurants here, hardly anyone consumes tea and the like.

    Dessert: Green Tea and/or Mango ice cream.

    Well, you could go hog wild with appetizers, do you have a particular culture you're focusing on (ie Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Korean)?
    As for dessert, I'd go with a nice, light sorbet in something like mango or coconut. Most Asian cuisine desserts are quite different from American style desserts- they like to put stuff like bean paste in them.
    Beverages- are you talking adult beverages or non-alcoholic? If you're looking to do non- alcoholic- you could always do something like an Asian inspired iced-tea. For adult drinks- there's always sake , or cocktails made with things like tropical fruits, etc

    I'm vegetarian and hate seaweed, but just found out that I love veggie sushi with soy wraps. Absolutely delicious. Never would have thought I'd like sushi.

    Come to think of it, I do see a lot of sherbert at many Asian restaurants.

    Okay, slight spinoff but not really because its about sushi:

    can someone please give me the basic rundown of types with descriptions? I'm not sushi-educated! I do like the california rolls and spicy sirimi (spelling?) rolls. Are these considered sushi? What is sashimi?

    Thanks!

    Sushi means slices of raw fish, mixed with, laid over or wrapped in or around special sushi rice (rice with vinegar). Although it's come to mean not just raw fish in the US, but anything served in the style of sushi (ie vegetables)
    Sashimi is simply the raw fish, often sliced very thinly.
    Maki- is a sushi roll wrapped with seaweed (nori)
    Nigiri is raw fish atop oblong shaped rice
