Well, this is a bit embarassing. My wife, daughter and I had a wonderful lunch at a brand new Japanese fusion place in New Paltz, NY, but I can’t seem to find out what it’s called. I do know that it’s located at 215 Main St, New Paltz, NY 12561 because it’s in the same complex as the Moxie Cupcake we stopped at afterwards. Anyway, this is the second Bento Box I’ve ever had, but this is definitely the best of the pair. The California roll was pretty much as good as any other California roll and the rice was nice, light and sticky. The shrimp shu mai were also very tasty and I think that’s the first time I’ve ever had those.
I am much more well versed in Sesame Chicken, however and this was a very good example of the stuff. Sometimes the sauce is too thick and can wind up tasting like candy, other times the chicken isn’t well trimmed and turns out fatty and gross, but this was both a great cut of chicken and a well balanced sauce. When I figured out the name of the place, I’ll write another post, I promise!
