If you are looking for a great seafood appetizer to start your meal at M.Y. ASIA, the salt and pepper seafood is simply perfect. The dish brings together a lightly battered calamari and scallops with fried garlic and shallots and tossed in a house blend of salt and pepper. This is kept simple, but it is prepared flawlessly and you will have no shortage of seafood if you are looking for a little heat, at the bottom of the dish you are going to find a hint of Thai chilis to soak up and a little kick to this wonderful dish. The other dish to get things started with is the Vietnamese herb glass noodle salad, which Chef Yan refers to as “farm to chopstick salads” that he has on the menu. This salad gives you a new flavor with each bite as the ingredient list is as big as the bowl, highlighted by the glass noodles, Thai basil, pickled carrots, and chili-lime dressing and that is not even half of the ingredients. It makes you think of being in a garden and picking all the ingredients fresh and eating them all together in the moment, this is just a truly unique salad.

Chinese Style Roast Duck

Chef Yan’s lively ambiance brings many fans to indulge in the hand-pulled noodles dining experience, and classic delectables that can’t be missed, such as the Roasted Duck, and crab fried rice. The Chinese Style Roasted Duck is certainly a highlight of the menu, but if you are going to order this, you need to get in early as this dish takes a lot of love and time to create and M.Y. ASIA usually makes about a dozen per day, so when they are gone, that is it. The half roasted duck is marinated in a special five-spice blend and is fall off the bone tender and to take up the flavor to an even higher level, it is served with a very creative sweet and savory plum sauce.
