How terrible! :(

There used to be a restaurant in Hillcrest called Pink Noodle (now out of business) that had an actual pink noodle dish. The noodles were dyed pink from beet juice.


Pad Thai looks terrible.


Ok, so the pad Thai is pink, then the county fair 'breading' (along with the obviously purchased breaded shrimp)...then your deliciously descriptive California roll debacle. I'm shuddering; literally.

I never liked the food at Asian Star at all. Everything was always way too sweet, greasy, and pretty tasteless. It was Americanized Chinese the way Taco Bell is Americanized Mexican food. At least Taco Bell is edible.


well, at least the soups were okay... worst looking/sounding bento box I've seen in a while though. I tend to avoid going to restaurants serving Oriental cuisine

Ed (from Yuma)

I agree, foodhoe, but Yuma doesn't offer alot of choices. Also, there are several Malaysian Chinese in the area, so some pan Asian cuisine here is OK. Only YummyYummy just does only Chinese and but even the very good Red Rose Thai serves pierogies (don't ask).

You're certainly right, Joan, but early on the place was capable of serving some pretty good stuff. Part of the reason for this post was to warn people.

And yes, Billy, Cathy, and cc, it was pretty godawful overall.


Wow, I usually leave your posts extremely jealous. You made me think of the last time MY dog was sick. Wheat grass juice anyone?
