Longshot - Seeking "Asian Nachos"
- sylvrgirl Nov 9, 2008 05:02 PM
While I was in Chicago for a few days, I ate with some colleagues at Grand Lux Cafe.
We ordered a number of apps, but one that stood out for me was their Asian Nachos.
Here is the description from the menu......
Crispy Fried Wontons Covered with Chicken in a Sweet-Hot Peanut Sauce. Topped with Wasabi Cream and Melted Cheese."
What I'd like to know and it may be a longshot, is if there is any location here in TO that serves this?
The Pickle Barrel has a dish they call Asian Nachos. I'm sure it's not exactly the same recipe, but probably pretty close.
The description said "covered with chicken" and "peanut sauce" - traditional crispy wontons only have a sweet and sour sauce, with no chicken or peanuts.
I think it's a longshot too! it's probably something invented by that restaurant.
Edit: sorry the Pickle Barrel version is indeed similar:
Fried crispy wontons drizzled with an Oriental Sesame sauce and smothered with a combination of mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, chicken strips and stir-fried vegetables.
My husband and I where in San Diego a about a month ago and had Asian Nachos, we loved them and can not remember the restaurant or find a recipe on line for them. This description sounds like the exact same is there anywhere i can get the complete recipe?
