|Asian Restaurants: Big Bowl||Thursday, 2003 November 27 - 12:44 pm|
|Big Bowl lives up to its name with large servings and a big, arena-like atmosphere. The pan-Asian cuisine is tasty, though not brilliant.|
Big Bowl, at Southpoint Mall in Durham, features a number of different Chinese, Thai, and Japanese rice and noodle dishes. It's a veritable Disneyworld of Asian cuisine, hitting all the major flavors without exploring the nuances. One can't really them for this; a national chain restaurant could hardly be expected to take chances with exotic fish recipes and the like.
And so, there's lots of chicken and shrimp, and lots of soy/sesame/hoisin/peanut-based sauces. Not to say the food isn't good; it's efficiently executed and surprisingly tasty, and the portions are generous. But you won't find anything here that you haven't tasted before. The stir-fry bar doesn't really add anything either.
In the end, Big Bowl is something like the Asian food equivalent of Chili's... family-friendly, loud, and generic, and lacking in any sort of signature dishes; but satisfying nonetheless.
