Four out of four walleyes

Four out of four walleyes

 Asian Max has a very unusual cuisine concept.  It’s not any particular part of Asia — rather, they have lunch combos representing Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Vietnamese, and Malaysian cuisine.  There’s also daily specials and some tasty looking appetizers, like spring rolls, egg rolls, wontons, and sushi.  I ordered the Malaysian lunch combo, with coconut-fried chicken, spicy green beans, and white rice.  When the server asked if I wanted teriyaki or ginger sauce on the rice, I almost declined either, thinking that a spoonful of soupy water couldn’t possibly be very interesting.  But that spoonful of ginger sauce gave my rice just a hint of flavor, and it went wonderfully with my deliciously tasty chicken and green beans.  The only part of the meal I didn’t love was the sauce for the chicken, which seemed to be just pineapple and coconut juice combined.  But it was still a great meal: tasty but not too heavy.  The service at Asian Max was fast and friendly, and I thought the pitcher of ice water set out by the cutlery was really a nice touch.

 

Price: Slightly pricier than some of the other take-out Chinese places ($6 for a lunch combo, $3.60 for a side salad), but the extra dollar is definitely worth it!

Speed: efficient and quick

Seating: Plenty of seats, mostly at tables for four, but larger groups could probably shove a couple together
