The fact is that there just isn't a lot of low carb Asian meals out there in restaurants. Trust me I have looked. So much of the food is deep fried, contains noodles, or is covered in some sugary sauce. Usually when I go somewhere of the Asian variety now it is because my wife wants the food. Don't get me wrong, I love the stuff, Panda Express was a staple of my old diet and cream cheese wontons are my kryptonite. but those things are too much of a temptation these days.
So what happens if you end up there and you got to get something, Well it happened to me this past weekend when the family wanted Pei Wei
. I hoped on-line as quick as possible and check out the nutritional info
. Not a ton of choices. I decided that I would give the Thai Dynamite Beef a go. I imagine the Beef and Broccoli would have been a good choice too.
The Thai Dynamite Beef was pretty good. It had a nice light crunch to it and there was a nice tangy flavor. Its not too sweet, but has just enough to give it that light Asian taste you want. I only wish I had some more veggies with the meal. Perhaps my next visit I will try to sub out the rice for some fresh veggies and see what happens.
