I liked the flavors in this bowl, but it was really small and the fish wasn’t the best quality. Thank goodness they put plenty of pickled ginger to help kill off any bacteria.

This was pretty good for a chain restaurant’s version of Americanized sushi. I did like the flavors although the sushi rice had a weird consistency. Douse it in enough sauce and forget about the finer details, lol!

Lemongrass pork salad box – Asian Box

Lemongrass pork salad box - Asian Box
Asian salad, bean sprouts, pickled vegetables, jalapeno, scallion oil, crispy shallots, chopped peanuts, fish sauce. $8.75
Asian Box, San Francisco CA

I love the flavors of their boxes, but they’re just not filling for me especially when it’s salad instead of rice. This time around, the lemongrass pork was a bit on the dry side. I’m glad that I got the fried shallots though – they tasted good.
