I have driven by this put frequently due to the fact it first opened just fewer than two yrs back, and last week I finally pulled my auto over and gave it a check out.
Operate by two partners, Soovan Phetramphamh and David Cohen Tannoudji, Noraka is a entirely kosher institution that presents freshly organized Oriental cuisine.

A friend and I just lately savored a tasty meal. We begun with some piping warm orders of wonton soup. For appetizers we shared some fried imperial rolls and wonton frits (chicken and vegetable dumplings with handmade peanut sauce), each individual crispy and delightful with plumb sauce to dip in. I made the decision to test their rib steak, medium, preceded by a backyard salad and accompanied by a aspect buy of crispy matchstick fries. My buddy opted for the Normal Tao chicken (deep fried and coated in a sweet and bitter sauce), which came with steamed white rice. Oh yes, the foods did come with fortune cookies.
Some of the other appetizing things I have my eye on for the next time contain the grilled marinated rooster or beef skewers, marinated and fried hen wings, a rice noodle stir fry, beef sesame and salmon teriyaki. I will also test the menu to see what dessert is getting available. Consumers like the chocolate mousse.
