All Seasons Table, Malden

Lady in Red Maki, from the menu description it is a “soft shell crab tempura maki topped with tuna and tobiko drizzled with balsamic syrup.” This was one of my favorite maki of the lunch. Our mom for her birthday asked to go to All Seasons Table just for this roll. A couple we know very well just announced they were going to have a baby and what they missed most was the Lady in Red Maki.
Spicy Tuna Maki (Left), Spicy Hamachi Maki (Upper Right), and Una Avo Maki (Lower Right)
Both the spicy tuna maki and spicy hamachi maki have some tobiko mixed in along with some thinly sliced scallion. I like how you get more fish than rice in the maki rolls here. This restaurant also makes one of my favorite versions of the una avo maki around. The barbequed eel is served semi-warm and pairs wonderfully with the soft buttery flesh of the avocado. It needs no wasabi or ginger.

Peking Duck Lettuce Wraps

The waiter prepares this appetizer for you table-side so that none of the ingredients get soggy from the sauce or duck. It’s a good take on regular lettuce wraps. The duck is well made and the fried vermicelli noodles add a nice crunch. The plum sauce that comes with it has a good amount of hoisin sauce mixed in.

Pan Fried Chicken in Malaysian Curry Sauce

This was a very good curry if you prefer your curry to have a slightly more sweet edge and lots of coconut milk. The chicken is tender and not overcooked. There is are a few too many onion slices but I think that may have been a fluke.

AST is a pan Asian restaurant owned by a Vietnamese entrepreneur. The hostesses are friendly and quick to get you seated. The interior is sleek and modern. There is live jazz here on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays starting at 8 pm. The sushi here is well made with lots of fish and a small amount of rice in the maki rolls. It is not the best sushi I have ever had, but it is delicious. Drinks are tasty and pricing is moderate. The waiter was very attentive. The menu has typical Chinese fare but also a lot of flavors from all over Asia and there should be no problem for diners to find something to enjoy. Overall, this would be a place for a date or to get drinks with friends.
