Asian 168 Chinese, Vietnamese, and Thai Food
Just ate lunch at this new Asian place at 505 N. High St across from the CC and in the same building that the Hampton Inn is.
Four of us went, I had some awesome and fully stuffed Crab Ragoons and an ample and tasty portion of Veggie Lo Mein. I also had a veggie egg roll that was too greasy, but still decent. Lunch prices are until 3pm.
A friend had some excellent fried tofu, maybe the best tofu I've ever had. It had a sweet sauce and very buttery in the inside. Everybody enjoyed their dishes.
They have the normal east Asian menu with some different stuff. They have a happy hour from 4pm-8pm with half off drinks and appetizers. Clean sharp interior. They also deliver in the area for any order over $20.
They use real plates and utensils. The only bad part was they use styrofoam for take home boxes. Our waiter was friendly and chatty, very attentive.
The coolest part is the cook/maitre'd/bar tender dude who had this short little pony tail, leather pants, a white turtle neck and a straight forward Kangool cap.
Asian 186 is a welcomed addition to the Convention Center area. I think I'll be back!
