The Best Chinese Food Restaurant in Kentucky

April 21, 2015

This is an excerpt from Yahoo's Food column edited by Jeff O'Heir. You can read the entire article here.  Our aim is to highlight the best Chinese restaurants in the Midwest.

Amerasia. 521 Madison Avenue, Covington, Kentucky.

Don't be surprised to see Amerasia's chef Rich Chu touring the dining room with a glass of beer and drinking a toast to each diner until his glass is empty. You'll toast him right back after scarfing down his "Kung Food." You'll also want to keep that glass full throughout the meal. Amerasia's broad, "eclectic" mix of craft beers and rotating taps separate it from most other Chinese restaurants in the country. Kung fu posters on the walls and classic martial arts and monster movies on the TV add to the fun and funky atmosphere. Oh yes, there's also the food. Dragon Breath Wontons, "great" egg rolls, How Fun Noodles, Mongolian beef, Pork Get in Mah Belly, General's Sesame Street Chicken, Borcco-Lee and Big Bird's Nest get strong Yelp shout outs. Chef Chu also respects spice levels. If you ask for heat, you'll get heat.
