Asian Kitchen Bar and Grill (formerly called Padi) in Hockessin a Must-Try

From the curry dipping sauce to the pan-fried miso sea bass, the Hockessin eatery deserves a second shot.

We’re big fans of the new(ish) menu at Asian Kitchen Bar and Grill in Hockessin’s Lantana Square. Among our faves: pan-fried miso sea bass, as well as Malay Prawn with onion, lemongrass, coconut milk and homemade curry paste and, of course, pad Thai. A must-try from the sushi bar is the spider roll of fried soft shell crab. The vegetable entrées will put some spice in your life. The mango salad (mixed greens, shredded mango, pine nuts, raisins, cucumber and light mango vinaigrette) keeps it cool. If you haven’t visited lately, it’s time to go back. If you’ve never been before, go now. As always, don’t forget to start your meal with the roti canai Indian pancake. The curry dipping sauce could change your life. 239-1800
