Rice + Noodles Asian Kitchen To Open in Campbell in Mid March
Comments Chung, “I want to showcase the cuisine of Asia that has evolved over centuries and is today enjoyed daily by many millions of people. It's accessible food that reflects a diversity of cultures, techniques and flavors."
On the debut Rice + Noodles Asian Kitchen menu, the soups, salads and appetizers ($5.00 to $12.00) will include Chinese Sausage and Papaya Salad, Soft Shell Crab Fresh Roll and a Vietnamese Pulled Pork Burrito. Among the notable entree choices ($8.00 to $16.00) will be Soy Braised Sliced Pork Noodle Soup, a Grilled Pork and Lemongrass Rice Plate, and Vegetarian Dumpling and Tofu Shanghai Noodle Soup. Not to be missed will be the restaurant’s 1/4 Chicken Shanghai Noodle Soup and the Steak with Seasonal Vegetables Rice Plate. A number of vegetarian dishes will always be offered. For dessert, diners can enjoy a house-made Cassava Bar or Cream Cheese Banana Pie. Takeout service will be a specialty of the house.
Chef Chung, 54 years old and a native of Saigon, has been involved in the restaurant business for more than 30 years. He is the proprietor of Ginger Cafe with locations in Sunnyvale and Gilroy, plus Fu Kee Restaurant in San Jose. The Rice + Noodles Asian Kitchen menu includes numerous dishes inspired by the food that his mother served the family while they lived in Vietnam and who owned and operated her own restaurant in San Francisco in the 1980s.
The restaurant’s select wine list is California focused and about a dozen domestic and imported beers, on draft and in bottles, will also served.
The Rice + Noodles Asian Kitchen dining room will blend Asian accents and artifacts with contemporary aesthetics and have a bright, simple, uncluttered feel to it. Highlights will include a color scheme of earth tone white, brown, and cream, porcelain tile flooring, a high ceiling, and lots of natural light. The restaurant will seat 74 guests and there will be room for 26 more people on an outdoor patio.
