Press photos are one thing— honest reviews and on-site photos are better! This is where we will post photos of what we were served, and our candid thoughts on this year’s selections.

Teriyaki Chicken Bun Review

  • Teriyaki Chicken Bun; $6.50
    • Steamed Bun filled with Chicken, Vegetables, and Teriyaki Sauce

Reporter, Tina Chiu: “Always a fan of the chicken bao! I love how it’s portable and easy to eat without needing a table or utensils. The filling was tender, sweet with a kick of spice. I ended up having to grab two because my son did not want to share his.”

Tempura Shrimp Sando Review

  • Tempura Shrimp Sando (New!); $6.25
    • Crunchy Shrimp served with Yuzu Crab, Green Onions, and Eel Sauce served on a Bun

Communications Director, Tatjana Lazar:This was basically just a bunch of hot dog bun bread. I couldn’t taste the shrimp whatsoever.” Alternative: Shrimp Curry at Noodle Exchange

Editorial Director, Rain Blanken: “I really liked everything going on inside this bun! The shrimp was crispy and tender inside, and I love a good crab salad. The crab was a great texture and the eel sauce gave everything a little sweet kick. My only wish was for less bun: The bread seemed out of place, so I think this could have worked great with less bread as an open-faced sandwich. I ended up eating everything inside the bun, though!”

Spicy Hako Sushi Review

  • Spicy Hako Sushi (New!); $6.50
    • Spicy Tuna and Salmon served Box-style with Red Tempura Crunch and Volcano Sauce

Communications Director, Tatjana Lazar: “Soooo flavorful but the portion was too small. Maybe it would have been okay for one person but we shared it so we each only got one piece of sushi.”

Reporter, Tina Chiu: “I needed more of this dish! The spicy tuna and salmon were fresh, flavorful and the rice helped tone down the heat.”

Kochi Lemon Drop Review

  • Kochi Lemon Drop (New!); $8
    • Vodka, Yuzu, and Lemon Juice garnished with a Lemon Jelly

Communications Director, Tatjana Lazar: “This was totally delicious! While on the small side, I would still absolutely get this drink again. It was just sour enough, and just sweet enough! And the candied lemon garnish was a nice touch!”

Reporter, Tina Chiu: “One of my favorite drinks that we tried. It was light, sweet, and refreshing, I wish it came in a bigger cup.”
