KANSAS CITY — Asian flavors and ingredients are trending in new restaurant dishes as consumers seek to experience more global cuisine.
Two new Asian-inspired burgers are joining the menu at Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews.
The Bacon Curry Burger features a beef patty topped with jalapeño-curry ketchup, curry-flavored red onions, hardwood-smoked bacon, provolone cheese, crispy potato sticks, pickles, shredded romaine and mayo.
The Zen Chicken Burger features grilled chicken breast topped with honey-miso sauce, sweet and sour slaw, hardwood-smoked bacon, cheddar, avocado, pickles and lettuce.
Noodles & Co. is offering a new spin on orange chicken with its new Grilled Orange Chicken Lo Mein. The dish features lo mein noodles sautéed with snap peas, Napa cabbage and red cabbage in a slightly sweet orange sauce topped with grilled chicken, green onions, black sesame seeds and cilantro.
“The new Grilled Orange Chicken Lo Mein showcases the fresh, tangy flavors true to the original Chinese orange chicken while steering clear of artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or preservatives,” said Nick Graff, executive chef at Noodles & Co. “With our growing selection of worldly and light options, there is truly something on the menu for everyone.”
