Restaurant week came in a hurry. I figured when was the next time I'd get to try Asiatique? I found my way up there just off the main drag in West Chester. I was impressed with the building. This place is HUGE! it could probably seat 300 people. There was not a large amount of folks there when I went though. It was a Monday anyways.
I've never had tomato Parmesan soup at an Asian restaurant before. It was good. I just didn't expect it.
These are crab and goat cheese spring rolls. These were yummy! I did not get an overpowering flavor of crab - but you could tell it was in there. I would likely eat a shoe if it were covered in goat cheese though. The dipping sauce was really tasty as well. Spicy with a vinegar bite.
I ordered the dry rubbed pekin duck breast, pickled root vegetables and spicy orange + grand marnier sauce. This was very tasty. I think that the root vegetable was fennel. I definitely detected that licorice flavor. The duck was delicious and seasoned well. I just loved it.
Something very unexpected was their iced tea. I've been trying to phase out soda lately and have switched to iced tea in restaurants. They told me that it was a peach mango iced tea. Very delicious!
This is a wonderful place with a huge assortment of things to try from different Asian cultures. There are some safe choices also if you are still hesitant.
