Asiana House, Montpelier, VT

Had my first experience at Asiana House in Montpelier last night. It was lovely! We went out for dinner with a work colleague of my husband's. He ordered tempura shrimp and udon noodles in broth. He got a HUGE bowl of broth and noodles, and a lovely pile of shrimps. He said the tempura was nicely crisp and that the noodles were soft and delicious, as was the broth. :) (well, delicious, probably not soft).

They have an array of fully cooked maki rolls, and I opted for their B52 Maki, which the menu describes as: an outrageous combo of hamachi, kanikama, avocado, scallion & tobiko rolled w/ nori, tempura fried until fully cooked then re-rolled w/ sushi rice & nori & topped w/ 3 sauces. I found it quite delicious, though I didn't notice the tobiko much. I'd never had a tempura fried roll before, it was fun and tasty. It was a tad spicy but not so much I couldn't eat it.

My husband had bi bim bap. It wasn't quite sizzling when it arrived, but the stone bowl was hot. I think it was a well-executed dish, but I don't know much about it, so only know that I liked the taste of it I had.

I ordered negi maki as an app, and my husband ordered fried gyoza. We shared a bite of each and I enjoyed both of them immensely. The negi maki wasn't fully cooked, which I LOVED but I could see how it might put some others off. it had a nice little topping of some tiny green (not sure what but it was tasty) that added a bit of freshness.

I was pleased with both the atmosphere and the food and I hope to go back for lunch someday to get a bento box. :) I heartily recommend this place as a good option in Montpelier. :)
