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......
"Asian Nachos:
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.

      Many chinese places serve the crispy fried wontons with the sweet hot chicken sauce on top. Many places even server them at dim sum. The only addition seems to be the wasabi cream and cheese which I have not seen anywhere.

        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?
