Checking Out J’s Asian Street Food

We decided we wanted to try someplace new for the holiday weekend. We were not in the mood for a heavy meal and decided we would try someplace that did “small” bites. We’ve had J’s Asian Street Food on our list since just after it opened and decided to swing by.

We got there about 5 o’clock on Sunday. We sat in the bar area which is a pretty cool room. They have Kirin Ichiban on draft so we ordered a couple. They were served ice cold in small mason jars which was pretty cool.

The menu is pretty extensive. They have “small bites” for starters which include most of your favorite Asian appetizers including gyoza, Vietnamese lettuce wraps, Korean Pancakes, and Crab Wontons. They also offer homemade bao, noodle dishes, street skewers, wings, wok dishes, and desserts. They alos have bento boxes for lunch.

We ordered the Taiwanese Fried Chicken off the “small bites” part of the menu. These are bite-sized pieces that have a great seasoning. Even though it was a “small bite”, the portion was very generous. After that, we had J’s Bao. These are filled with cilantro, cumber, carrots, and the protein of your choice. We had them with pork belly. The bread was amazingly fresh and soft and the filling really delicious.

It was a delicious, relaxed “quick” meal. Given the breadth of the menu, I am sure we will be visiting again soon.
