Asian Food in/near Oxford, Mississippi
It looks as though I'm going to be moving to the Oxford, Mississippi area during the summer of next year. I'm curious about the availability and quality of Asian restaurants and groceries in the area (if there are any... I wouldn't mind driving an hour if the craving was strong enough). Here are some categories that I'd be interested in seeing feedback on:
-Americanized Chinese takeout
-Authentic Chinese (Dim Sum?)
-Anything I missed?
There is no good Chinese in Oxford. Two Stick is pretty good Japanese/Americanized Asian, but you'll have to go to Memphis to get really good Asian. H2O is probably the best in town. I've heard there is a new Thai place, but I don't know anything about it. In Memphis, check out Saigon Le for Vietnamese, Lobster King for authentic Chinese and great seafood, and Sawaddi or Bhan Thai for Thai.
I hope you are aware that Oxford is a very small town. There is only one Japanese place (Two Stick) that is run by Americans. There are a couple of Chinese places (think Buffets), maybe one Thai place, and that's about it. No ethnic groceries at all. Memphis is about an hour away, and you will do much better there.
