Austin >Food & Dining > Imperia
A dressy, downtown Japanese/Chinese outfit with an inventive sushi menu -- and given the atmosphere, prices really aren't that bad. Vegetarians will like the Buddha-Licious, stuffed with shiitake mushrooms, inari tofu, sprouts, cucumber, avocado, and tempura asparagus; carnivores (and sushi iconoclasts) will like the BLT: It's miso-glazed bacon, avocado, tuna, and lettuce in a tomato basil wrap, topped with pesto and tomato aioli.
Dry Dry Dry Food; Worse than a Banquet TV Dinner!. Dry dry dry food. Even the lemons for the iced tea were dry. One prior reviewer talked about the "imperceptible peanut sauce" on the chicken satay, and I am envious of his/her vocabulary, because that is so descriptive. The chicken satay was dry, and the 'sauce" was less exhilirating than Campbell's Tomato Soup }: The molten chocolate cake was the only appealing piece of an otherwise arid night. The rotund server seemed to have a supercilious air, and I just can't ever tolerate that--after all, she is, when all is said and done, A SERVER. Also, there is no table bread. I am just so glad this dinner was free to me, or I would have complained from the word "go."
Wow. Dinner was fantastic! We had the sugar cane duck kabob and was really good. We also had the dragon rib and the ribeye. The dragon rib was HUGE and enough for 2 people. The ribeye was a little more fatty than normal but still tasted amazing. I would have to say the best thing we tasted was the lobster mashed potatoes. It was so delicious we couldn't stop eating them. Dessert was just as good as the rest of the meal. The molten cake with coconut ice cream was the perfect ending to a delicious meal! I highly recommend this place. Portion's and flavor are well worth the price.
