At least once a week, my family orders something for lunch or dinner from a local restaurant. Not only does this help a local business, but it helps me because I don’t have to cook!
This week, we ordered from Sakana Asian Cuisine, located down the street from the AMC theater at 3100 Quakerbridge Rd Ste 10 in Trenton/Hamilton Township.
This is the first time we ordered delivery from this restaurant, usually we would go and take advantage of the all you can eat menu for a flat fee. Because we’ve never ordered from the standard menu we were a little nervous about the outcome and decided on getting lunch just in case. However, we were pleasantly surprised. We ordered a General Tso’s Bento Box, Thai Red Curry Lunch Special, Crab Rangoon and the Beef Gyoza.
The delivery was within the time they gave, about 45 minutes from the time I placed the order. It seems like they use independent Grubhub drivers, which we’ve had problems with in the past, but this time it was great and they actually left my food by my door and waited for us to come outside to get it before leaving.
This came with a green salad and a wonton soup. Inside the box is shumai (shrimp dumpling), California roll (imitation crab, cucumber and avocado) and of course the General Tso’s chicken with rice (you can choose between white or brown). I have always loved this chicken when going there so I figured this was a safe bet. I was right, it was exactly how I remembered: slightly sweet and with a little spice. You get a lot for your money, and I was only able to finish half the chicken.
This came with white rice and wonton soup. It has mixed vegetables and chicken in a thin red curry sauce. The sauce is creamy with coconut flavors and not at all spicy. My husband ordered this one, he thought it was excellent and also was only able to eat half of it.
These came with a delightfully sweet chili sauce and were just as good as I remember them being. They have the creamiest filling and better than almost any crab rangoon I have had before. My husband and I wished we had ordered two.
These beef dumplings were excellent, and pretty self explanatory. Great texture and the sauce was very flavorful.
So all in all, this was a great experience with Sakana Asian Cuisine. We would surely order from here again and have it delivered. Even though most of our experience is eating there, if you’re looking for more recommendations we’re also fans of the Avocado Salad, Hibachi Dinners, Chicken Teriyaki, Salmon Teriyaki, and Mongolian beef(Dinner only). Hope this helped!
