Honey Walnut ShrimpThis restaurant, Asia Village, was recommended to me by a friend who used to live in the neighborhood before he left to plant a church.  Not having the menu I ended up calling the restaurant and ordering what they recommended.

  1. House special pan fried noodles – $7.50. The kids loved this and we thought it was great. It’s not on the menu. The owner said it’s more expensive than the other dishes because the noodles are thinner and are deep fried twice.
  2. House special fried rice – $7.50. Again not on the menu. The owner said it’s more expensive than regular fried rice because it has more stuff in it. We liked it because it is not oily, instead rather fluffy, and they gave a lot.
  3. Walnut shrimp – $10.95. Sixteen pieces, quite yummy. This was Ji Seon’s favorite dish.
  4. Lingka (sp?) fish – $22. This is actually two dishes. The meat, which is white and light, is taken out and stir fried with celery and green beans. It was quite good though my wife thought it had too much ginger and no other flavor. The other dish is the head and tail chopped up and stir fried with tofu. I liked the tofu but the fish parts were mostly just bone in batter.

Overall it was a good experience. I have a feeling we’ll be going there quite often.  Still not as good as our old favorite in Boston, Victoria Seafood.

By the way, I wrote most of this on Yelp and then I realized I didn’t want the owner reading my review.  So I edited out most of it and put it here.  Also I only gave it three stars because I couldn’t figure out how to give it 3.5 stars. :-)
