Elena | Amazing food! Vegan options!
I’ve lived in Asia for 7 years and gosh I miss the food. Taste of Asia is the best place I have found in Sarasota for authentic Asian cuisine, very friendly service, beautiful restaurant…and the best of all, that have a vegan menu! A whole vegan menu. I’m in heaven. Highly recommend for both vegetarians and meat lovers out there.

Chicken and rice soup…So simple, but I can’t get enough of this light soup, which hits a high note thanks to the addition of crispy shallots. I always order three or four containers so I can sip it throughout the day. The chicken is tender; make sure you ask for a little extra cilantro and chopped scallions. My son’s trick is to get a side of panang curry sauce and mix it in for a spicy Thai version.

Been going to Taste of Asia since they were on the Siesta Key; I grew up on their pho. I’ve traveled quite a bit, but this is simply the best Thai and Laos food around. If you haven’t been here yet – Go!
