If you have read this blog really ever, you have probably picked up on the fact that we don’t really review Asian restaurants very often. This isn’t because we don’t like them, we just don’t have very many favorites other than our awesome run-of-the-mill Americanized Chinese place close to our house. We always talk about trying some of the more upscale Asian fusion or really just a Korean or Japanese restaurant, but we never really get around to it.
All that changed when Cary tried Soy Teriyaki Bistro for lunch one day. He sent me pictures to my phone and said we had to try it. So, that was way back in September and we just now got around to going together.
We started with chicken and vegetable dumplings with a side of sweet chili sauce. The dumplings were perfectly crispy on the outside with perfectly steamed vegetables and chicken on the inside. Cary and I only got to try one each because our little Bug ate four! Apparently they are a big hit with the toddler.
Cary and I both ordered the special, bibimbap. This is a traditional Korean dish contains beef and vegetables presented on a bed of steamed rice. It is topped with lettuce, a fried egg and chili sauce.
On a previous visit, the chef told Cary the bipimbap meant to mix and that’s what you are supposed to do, so we did. It was delicious. Everything is made fresh to order with varying spice heats. I can’t wait to try more.
