Going through there soon. We used to go to a place called Asia just for their dumplings.

    Asia is still on Third Street in Dover and it's still a dump. I'm not sure the last time you ate there, but I would avoid the place unless you're looking for a bar scene.

      There's still not a lot of choice in Dover along the lines of good asian food. However, when we visit my parents, we hit Taste of India which is actually quite good (and been a sort of Dover wallflower for years).

        Yes, this is a very good rec, the Singh brothers are excellent and their food is quite good for the area.

        When I was in college we used to go to the Asia in Dover Point (sort of across the highway from Newick's) and get something called Asia Fantasia. I don't remember exactly what it was but it was served on a sizzling platter. But that was literally decades ago and that location has been at least a half dozen other businesses since then.

          There is a large place just on the other side of the bridge called "New Asia" (not on Dover Point, but very close). On the side of the building of "Asia" in downtown Dover, there's a large sign that reads: "Asia Fantasia." I think this place had it's day in the sun way back when, but that sun has set a long time ago. . .

            Yup, back when I was in college and we lived in an apt. on 3rd St we used to go there. Their dumplings were made thin skinned, and lo mein was made w/ flat rice noodles instead of egg noodles. Different fm most Chinese places in that sense-- greasy goodness! I loved those dishes even though it was sort of a dive back then too.

              Well, yes, if you do return could you please give us a report on food drinks, etc?

              I'd really be curious if it has change much in your opinion.

              Thanks
