If you’re looking for great Asian cuisine, look no further than right ‘here’ in Roanoke. Serving as the original Here Asian Cuisine location, it has become a local favorite. They have an incredible menu jam-packed with everything from classic Chinese classics to their own original “50-State” sushi rolls.
Owner, Wells Wang, and his wife opened the first Here Asian Cuisine location in Roanoke five years ago. Wells himself has been working in the food industry for over 30 years, learning from chefs at several Asian cuisine restaurants over the years.
In addition to their dining room decorated with beautiful, modern decor, they also have an incredible full-service bar with several TV’s where you can pull up and watch a game. All while sipping on a cocktail and eating a sushi roll. And every day from 4:15-7:00 they offer Happy Hour with specials on drinks and a sushi special where you can get three rolls off the Happy Hour menu for just $12.99!
As we mentioned before, Here Asian Cuisine has become famous locally for their signature “50-State” sushi rolls. We’ve taken quite the “cross-country road trip” through their sushi menu over the last few years and loved everything we’ve tried.
Some of our personal favorite State Rolls are the Tennessee which is topped with cooked eel (yes, it really does taste like chicken); the Utah stuffed with crab, eel and cucumber and topped with sliced avocado; and the Colorado which incorporates fruit with some mango inside the roll and sliced strawberries laid on top.
If you’re not a sushi fan, have no fear. Here Asian Cuisine has plenty for you as well. Some of our favorite Chinese dishes are their Orange Chicken and the Seafood and Vegetables. If you’ve haven’t hopped on the Here Asian Cuisine train yet, definitely give them a try! Whether you’re a sushi fan or not, or you’re just looking for a place to grab a drink and watch the game, you’ll love it ‘here!’
