Amasia Bistro Report

Three of us were lured into this fusion-y restaurant in Falls Church based on a couple of good reports on this board.

We were not amused.

Some of it is just plain tasteless and expensive when compared to what is available at Eden Center or Pilin Thai nearby. Potstickers were bland, summer rolls and egg rolls were mostly lettuce. Fish and chips also put through the deflavorizing machine, with a batter that was too light for its own good.

Bulgogi salad was a positive, and I would almost return to have this again: grilled marinated meat, cranberries, mandarin orange, feta, a concoction that worked for me.

The crime against food was the "BBQ" pulled duck sandwich. Pieces of duck smothered in the kind of brown sauce that only a corporation like Kraft could love. Why do this to duck? I couldn't tell if it was duck or how it was cooked. Shameful.
