The worst part of being a food blogger,  is you have always try different places (not really a bad thing) but it means that the places you really like to visit get pushed back and you don’t visit as often as you would like.

Obu Pan Asian is one of these places for me, I am always relaxed there and enjoy the food so it was time to put a pause on my places to visit list and go back to Obu.

It was nice to be back, and I was welcomed and shown to a table. I was then told they had a new menu, and given more details about it.

This was very good and the guys here were nice enough to allow me to try it tonight, even though it’s only available on specific days and times.

Sunday – Thursday : 12pm to 7pm
Fridays : 12pm to 6pm

Any three dishes from £12.95 per person

The Food…

Sweet Potato Chilli & Coconut Soup
Garnished with sesame and chive

As most of my family and friends know, I am not a soup person for me soup is an older generation food.

Tonight I decided to give this a shot, as it sounded nice plus if I didn’t like it I still had 2 other dishes to eat.

O.K this was very nice, I loved how sweet it was but not over powering and brace yourself….I would have this again.

The chilli part is really nothing, there is just a tiny tiny hint but don’t let that put you off. The flavours all worked very well together and was very good.

Pork Hirata Buns (Two Pieces)
Soft white steamed bun filled with Hot Sin pork strips

Yup I like my buns when I come to Obu Pan Asian, so when I saw this on the menu I needed to see if this was as nice as the Boa’s that I had last time.

On arrival these came in a nice basket where you take the lid off to reveal whats inside, I really like this as it adds to the presentation and its very cool…well I find it cool.

This was nice, the buns were very soft and the pork was perfectly cooked and tender.

For me though the pork strips could have packed a slightly bigger punch in flavour but thats just a personal preference.

Salt and Pepper Squid
Chilli and garlic dip

As soon as this arrived I was like I cant wait to try these!! what I have found is this dish is either a big HIT or a massive FAIL in restaurants these days. Some are too chewy, not salty enough or far too salty.

I was very happy tonight with this dish, it melted in my mouth and the perfect combination of salt and pepper and with the dip that just added that extra mmm but trust me the dip wasn’t needed as these were perfect.

Overall

I am so glad I put my restaurant list on hold tonight, and come back to Obu Pan Asian.

Tonights experience was very good, and the food was just as good and maybe even better than I remember.

I look forward to my next visit here

See you soon guys.

So I wanted to try another new dish, and I decided to try this as it sounded nice.

For me this was just a so so dish, the chicken for me was a little dry but the sauce was very nice.

For me this was ok, but I wouldn’t have it again mostly due to the chicken for me was just a little to dry.

A balanced visit today of some really good chicken with some ok chicken.

Shocker am back again, but why not every time I have been its always been a really enjoyable night and enjoyable food….so lets see will it continue when I try more new items.

The Food…

Jijimi Seafood 5.95
Pan fried vegetable pancake, spring onion, soy sauce

IMG_4615

I was very undecided what to order tonight, I wanted to order a few favs but then again it wouldn’t be much of a review since you could easily see what I thought in a previous one…..so I took one for the team and tried another new dish.

On arrival this looked very good so it was time to tuck in…

For me this was so so, it didn’t have too much flavour so the soy sauce was needed. If you are looking for a nice light dish, this is perfect but for me I need something with a little more flavour.

Thai Prawn Crackers £2.95

IMG_4636

I wanted a little side dish, so I ordered these. The last time I had these were at a Chinese restaurant in town, so I thought I wonder how they are here.

These were very nice, just as good as the ones I have had at the Chinese restaurant. If you like the normal style prawn crackers, give these a shot and am sure these will be your new favourites.

Overall

In short a solid 5 out of 5 again!
