Episode 055: Bites Asian Tapas - Asana Nakornchai & Derek Intapura

Say hello to Bites Asian Tapas, a cozy spot with lots of small plates from the Pacific Rim and beyond (yes, “beyond” includes Mexico and India), located in the heart of Lakeview.

Japan. Thailand. China. Korea. Vietnam. The USA. They all make great food. And you’ll find influences from all of them here. It’s sort of like a culinary supergroup. On the menu: kimchi egg rolls, pulled-pork-topped cornbread waffles (for brunch) and a ribeye-stuffedCrying Amigo Taco (its tears take the form of a Thai-style chili sauce).

So you’ll want to come here when you’re feeling… well, you don’t know what you’re feeling. You just know that barn-wood-covered walls, a roaring fire, some ramen noodles and a spicy ginger martini (the Hot Geisha) will improve your cold winter night.
