Another Trip to All Seasons Table, Malden
We went back to All Seasons Table in Malden Center last night, this time to try their Japanese food. sushi, pan-fried dishes, and teppanyaki. Last time we had tried the ma-po tofu and pan-fried chicken with spicy basil and chili sauce as well as their chicken lettuce wrap app. We tried the lettuce wraps again this time as well as a couple of miso soups to start (excellent balance of seaweek, tofu, scallions, and tasty broth). For our entrees, we had the regular sushi (tuna, salmon, octopus, whitefish, shrimp, yellowtail), all of which were excellent, and the chicken teppanyaki, which included sliced white-meat chicken marinated in teriyaki and placed on a bed of sauteed onions, with rice, broccoli, carrots, and asparagus on the side. I ended the meal with a big dish of ginger ice cream, complete with grape nuts on top. The bill came to just under $60, which, considering the classy, elegant atmosphere, the quality and presentation of the food, and the super service, was really quite reasonable.
We may head back there again in the next couple of weeks, perhaps on a Saturday night; I hope to try one of their Vietnamese, Thai, or Malaysian dishes, depending on what I'm craving.
I would say that All Seasons is definitely a place to consider if you like Pan-Asian cuisine. Very impressive, IMO...
I've gotten takeout at All Seasons the past two nights. I liked the food so much the first night I had to return the next night to make sure it wasn't a fluke. So far I've tried the Pan fried Gyoza, Summer Rolls, Crispy Aromatic Chicken and Pork Lo Mein. The Aromatic Chicken was a bit on the Salty side but still very tasty. The Lo Mein is the best I've had in quite some time. The summer rolls were very fresh and the chili dipping sauce that came with them was outstanding. I got the Gyoza both nights because I liked them so much. I'm sure I'll return soon to try some of the more exotic dishes. I'm a long time resident of Malden and its nice to have some decent choices in the area.
