Frenasia in Howard Beach redux: new menu!!

I just had to post again about this place. Wow, they really kicked it up a notch now. Before the menu items were mostly over $20 but now they added such staples as Pad Thai and Kung Po for $8.75 and tempuras/teriyakis for $10.95-$15.95, which means you can bring people who don't want to try the really cool stuff!!!

The grilled Chilean Sea Bass is amazing. For appetizers/soup, the butternut squash soup is chock-full-of flavors, the Vietnamese salad (with nappa cabbage, mango, peanuts, jalapeno and cilantro) is to die for, and I put it up there w/ the salads at Srip!!! The waiter suggested the Korean beef timbale salad for next time as he says he prefers it to the Viet. salad!

My lady friend also ordered a Thai spring roll which was excellent and I added just perfectly spiced Frenasia roll (cucumber, avocado, crabmeat & spicey yellowtail).

Oh, please leave room for dessert! We split the most amazing chocolate w/ choc. mousse, scoop of vanilla ice cream and strawberries cake that is to die for.

I had a glass of house cab. and we finished w/ a tea and coffee which came in a French press, all for around $60!!!

I can't wait to go back...their website has not been updated and is full of typos so just go and prepare to be here's a place to recommend for people who are laying over at JFK as they also do lunch!!!
