My dining companion and I decided to share two dishes. Both were reasonably priced. The Chicken Curry had a creamy flavorful coconut curry sauce and incorporated potatoes and carrots, with jasmine rice on the side. For our second dish, we chose one of Asian Box’s most popular dishes (The Miss Jones) which offered a tasty lemongrass pork, chilled noodles, and veggies in a zesty fish sauce. Two caramel eggs accompanied the dish and were surprisingly delectable.
