I love Asian inspired food. Don’t you?
In fact, sushi is one of my favorite foods. Don’t you make that face. Unless you’ve tried it there is no way you can’t say that you don’t like it. For your information, not all sushi is served raw. In any case, I liked tempera, steamed, smoked, and raw sushi. I love it all except one. Salmon. I don’t like the consistency of raw salmon. It’s too….mushy or something. I can do without it honestly. Everything else, I will try. There is this place in Cincinnati called “Wild Ginger” and it is absolutely one of my favorite restaurants within the city. When I go there I order a feast of food such as their chicken lettuce wraps, drunken noodles, spring rolls, and the list goes on. I order so much so I can try a bit of everything and their menu is kind of cheap so that makes it better. No silly, I don’t eat all that by myself. I usually have someone to eat the food with me.
Out of all the Asian foods I have tried, Japanese, Chinese, and Thai ( I don’t think I have had Korean food yet) I think sushi is my favorite Japanese food, Phou is my favorite Thai dish, and Orange Chicken is my favorite Chinese dish. I know that is super simple but I love any type of chicken that is fried and covered with some type of glaze. That is why I made this Asian inspired Pineapple Glazed Chicken Rice Bowl.
What I love about this dish is that there are so many flavors that surprise you throughout. The pineapple glaze is sweet and tangy with just the right amount of seasonings to balance it out so it isn’t to “pineapply”. Adding chopped cilantro and green onions gives it a certain added flavor where you can’t help but to make the sound “mmmmm”. Of course, the softness and the perfection of the rice that just absorbs all the excess glaze. It is an easy and super delicious dish to make. I love it! It is definitely on the menu in the, soon to be, “Washington” household. Don’t get turned-off by the amount of ingredients. I promise you probably have most of this stuff at home. The great thing about this dish is that you can get creative and add your own seasoning and your own flare to it to make it even more special. Whatever alterations you do, be sure to email me and tell me about it. Okay? Love you!
