Asian sensations

I'm hungry right now, so expect a barrage of food/restaurant posts today, including new Asian-inspired dishes at Bubba Gump on the Peak. The names of the dishes that are currently getting me all hot and bothered are: dynamite shrimp with spicy Asian sauce (don't know what "Asian sauce" is, don't really care, except it sounds kind of like a racial slur which I like) and greenbow tenders, aka spicy chicken strips with blue cheese sauce (oh, it's like watching porn, especially if you could see me now and note the lust in my eyes and the sliver of saliva hanging off the edge of my mouth) and shrimp shack pasta featuring tequila lime grilled shrimp with rigatoni and feta tossed in lemon garlic sauce. And get a load of oven-baked seabass... stuffed with crab and shrimp. Slurp!

If you're wondering where the Asian influence is, it's in the salads (a yin yang salad and a pear berry), but nobody goes to Bubba Gump for salads, that's like going to Prada to buy socks. Fine, everybody needs socks, but it's so NOT on the top of the list, and it's so NOT what you look forward to about going to Prada. Does Prada even make socks? Anyway, I digress. All that said, if you're going to eat a salad, normally Asian salads at American chains are the best, because they put in fun little unhealthy crunchies and crazy dressings that make things as unsalad-like as salads can get.

While we're on the topic of Bubba Gump, the picture is of Shrimper's Heaven: coconut shrimp, chilli shrimp, fried shrimp, tempura shrimp, fries and enough sauces for you to take a bath in. Poor, battered shrimp. Lucky, lucky us.
