Best Asian Food

1st Place: Shanghai Bistro

2nd Place: Pad Thai

3rd Place: Tokyo Japanese Restaurant (tied)

3rd Place: HuHot Mongolian Grill (tied)

Stir-frying last year’s competition into a delicious mash of chicken bits and orange glaze, the perennial winner of Shanghai Bistro is top wok, yet again. And why not? Their menu is both massive and reasonably priced, with an atmosphere of dark, urban, and relaxing, with live jazz or Peter Phippen often accompanying meals. Downtown’s Asian diner Pad Thai, in second, boasts unparalleled curry, noodle, and rice dishes. The restaurant make it easy to test your spice thresholds as well, as each dish may be “spiced up” or “down” according to a chili meter. Tokyo Japanese Restaurant snaps up third once again. Here, the chef dices, grills, and serves your party’s meals in a showcase of dexterity and grilled deliciousness. And Eau Claire newcomers HuHot Mongolian Grill tie for third, providing patrons massive buffets of raw meats (with options as varied as lamb and shark), vegetables, noodles, and sauces, which are then grilled before you for your pillaging pleasure. — TG
