|Paper Shrimp at A Taste of Asia II|
in Chatham, NJ
The first half of the menu contains about a dozen soups, salads and actual appetizers. The other half is 15 different gluten free entrees. Before ordering, I asked our waiter about dairy free and like almost all other Asian cuisine, nothing on the dinner menu had dairy. I also asked where the fried items were fried. He let us know that they have two fryers, one is dedicated gluten free!
With that we ordered the Paper Shrimp appetizer (pictured at right). Most of the entrees can be made spicy on a five point scale, but the one I ended up deciding on was a minimum of 3 – which was actually perfect for me and mostly mild with a slight kick. I had the Chili Chicken and my friend had the Borneo Orange Chicken. To avoid cooking a couple of nights, before we left I ordered the Curry Chicken Malaysian Style and the Ayam Basil to go (I had only eaten half my dinner and each take out portion served me twice). All four dishes were quite good but the Chili Chicken was by far my favorite.

There weren’t any desserts on the gluten free menu but after perusing their standard dessert menu, I think next time I need to inquire what if anything can be done gf/df. It certainly appears that quite a few desserts are naturally gluten free and probably dairy free as well.
This is definitely somewhere I would go back, especially given all of the options.
