Asian Temptation

23 Mamaroneck Avenue, White Plains, NY 10601-3309
(914) 328-5151

Located in the heart of downtown White Plains on Mamaroneck Avenue, this has been a frequent take out place for us. But this time we decided go regular and actually sit down and order like a good old lunch style. Friday lunch hour, usually is packed, though we got there just after twelve and were promptly seated next to the large multi buddha figure fresco.

The ambience is nice at this place. They even have live fishes and a waterfall kind of feel. A bar serves full drinks menu with a walk up counter also for quick eats for the single visitor. Anyhow, we wanted to have a proper sit down.

The lunch menu caught our attention and we found ourselves ordering two of the main entrees. Spicy Mango Sauce and Szechuan Peppercorn Sauce became the main course. For appetizers we chose the veggie tempura roll and the sweet potato tempura roll. The rolls came with a house green salad.

The Spicy Mango Sauce did come with a vegetarian option of adding Tofu. The mango was not too spicy and just right and generous in serving.

The other lunch option with Szechuan Peppercorn Sauce was also great in taste though a bit dry, it made a complete meal with the brown rice and all the fresh vegetables.

House salad on the side was crisp and soothing to the palate, and made a nice complement to the tempura and sweet potato rolls. With all this food, we had no room left for dessert though I am sure, we will be back for more.
