|East Moon's stylish interior|
The bottom line is that the mix of cuisines generates a mixed bag, but the best of the food is excellent. My main complaint is that the Thai food -- the only Thai available in Bowie -- is the least spicy Thai food I've ever tasted. Also, if you think because you're having Chinese food, you'll order an egg roll, be aware that you'll end up with a "Vietnamese egg roll," which I don't find nearly as tasty.
That said, their dishes are generally very well-prepared, and the presentation is very nice. The interior decor is head-and-shoulders above what you'd expect from the strip mall interior. The sushi is good, though I've yet to find the definitive area sushi joint. I'd definitely recommend them, with the caveat that your, "Oh, how exciting, they have that" moment may not live up to expectations.
|Tuna pizza letdown|
This...was not tuna pizza. It was tasty, but it was some sort of sashimi-on-wonton thing.
So...3.5 stars. It could probably be 4, but the fact that I'm not motivated to drive past Golden Pavilion to get there keeps it at 3.5.
Bowie Restaurant UpdateHibachi Bowl is open! Review coming later this month once I make it out there.
The full name of the restaurant coming to Free State is apparently "Anthony's NY Pizza & Pasta House". That means it's probably related to this one in Clarksville. My uncle calls that place, "pretty good, but not outstanding."
A colleague has confirmed my suspicions that Ichiban is the same place as the restaurant the City has listed as "Asian Bistro" next door, so that knocks down my to-do list by one. Here are the remaining restaurants to review and complete this Project.
- 19th Hole Bar & Gril
- Anthony’s NY Pizza & Pasta House (not open yet)
- Hibachi Bowl
- Ichiban Sushi Asian Bistro
- Irie Cafe (not open yet)
- Jerry’s Seafood
- Longhorn Steakhouse
- Penalty Box Cafe
- Pizza Hut (There are 3; I have visited 2, and will combine the reviews into one post.)
- Texas Roadhouse
