Of all of the Chinese spots on this strip, Asian Legend is one of the best. Authentic dishes in a modern looking space. Steamed soup filled dumplings with pork explode slowly warming my throat with savory delight. Hot and sour soup with chicken is exceptional; the thickness of broth and crunchy vegetables create a delightful texture. The house chicken half is a little dry but very crunchy with brittle, crispy skin – a dip would hit the spot.
Taiwanese street style deep fried tofu with garlic sauce is moist on the inside and crisp on the outside – a must if one loves tofu. Kung Pao shrimp is sweet and garlicky, but not very spicy. I ordered a white gourd drink with honey that tastes like captain crunch cereal – yum!
