Miso Asian Kitchen

Location: 4449 N Broadway
Cost: About $10 per person

A few weeks ago, the Professor had some surgery. Although he was well on his way to recovery, he was still feeling a bit tired and out of it. Ricky and I figured we'd bring him some dinner in one of our rare acts of genuine friendship. After some deliberation we settled on Thai. We were scanning seamless for delivery options, and when we came across Miso Asian, we just couldn't resist.

Note: The restaurant's website is completely worthless

From a delivery standpoint these guys missed the mark. The food showed up on time. There was only a $2.50 delivery fee. They even threw in a few free sodas with our order. Unfortunately, they didn't wrap the food tightly and a good chunk of it ended up at the bottom of the bag. Not only were we missing out on some food, but it was a pain to deal with the mess.

The prices were very standard. Most apps were in the $5 range while entrees were around $6. The portions were plenty for how much they cost, but with the spill, there was clear depreciation of value.

The Food
Our order was pretty typical. We went with the Crab Rangoon to start with. This was by far my favorite part of the meal. I consider myself a stickler about crab rangoon. These weren't overly fried and had a wonderfully light crisp. They were overflowing with filling that wasn't too sweet. From there, things went downhill.

Our entrees included the Mongolian Beef, the Garlic Chicken, and the Shanhai Chow Fun Chicken. The beef was overcooked and chewy. The garlic chicken was a little tough as well. Mostly though, the dish had nondescript flavor and a general saltiness that was unpleasant. Now, I happen to love most any chow fun dish, but these noodles were soggy and slimy. It's also pretty unsettling to look at the finished plates and see a gigantic grease pool in each one.

From the second we opened the delivery bag (with the exception of the crab rangoon), Miso Asian was a huge disappointment. Cardinal rules were broken left and right. Dishes weren't packaged properly, and the food that remained was too salty, too oily, and too improperly cooked. I'm giving them 1 out of 5 Pearls.
