Recently, I was introduced to the most delicious asian restaurant in South Tampa. This modern asian restaurant is perfect for a little date or a quick bite to eat. With its cute interior and mouth-watering flavors, I always enjoy my visit.

I’m a frequent customer at Asian Kitchen because of how delicious their food is and how convenient the location is-right off of interbay. I usually go after I’m done with school sports because the food is very filling and it’s on my way home.

The appetizers are part of why Asian Kitchen is my favorite place to eat. The pot stickers are some of the best I’ve ever had. They taste very authentic and are served nice and hot. The appetizers served have their own authentic flavor that I haven’t tasted before. They also pair perfectly with soy sauce, which is a plus.

There are a multitude of different types of asian food to choose from such as sandwiches, bowls, noodles, etc. My personal favorite is the Fried Rice ‘n Shine bowl. This bowl has fried rice, onion, carrot, egg, sesame oil, bean sprouts and soy sauce with any choice of protein. My personal favorite is the chicken because it’s very flavorful and perfectly cooked. For the sauce, I recommend yum yum sauce paired with soy sauce, it really brings out the flavor of the chicken and creates a great mixture of taste.

Not only does Asian Kitchen have quality food, they also make a killer boba tea. There are a variety of boba teas to choose from including fruit tea, milk tea or a slushie in a plethora of different flavors. Whenever I go, I usually get a matcha milk tea. The boba is very sweet, the milk tea is a great texture, and there’s a lot for what you’re paying for.

Overall, Asian Kitchen is a great option when craving the perfect chicken fried rice or quality asian food. It’s the perfect way to satisfy that rumbling in your stomach. With it’s wide variety of drinks and food, it’s guaranteed to leave your taste buds wanting more.
