The Orient Vietnamese Cuisine - Lawrence, Kansas
I love the Phad Thai at this little old restaurant in Lawrence, but this past weekend I decided to try the fried chicken and braised greens. The collard, turnip and mustard greens sounded good, but had a flavor which did not work for me.
But the chicken was another story. When it came out, it looked pretty ordinary, but it tasted wonderful. I've had fried chicken several times this summer, including some places well known for their chicken, but this was the best. It was tender with crispy skin battered in glutten free rice flour.
I asked the proprietor about the chicken coating (I thought their was ginger) but she said it was favored with an imported medicinal herb whose name I did not catch.
