An – a restaurant in Cary

Last Thursday, my husband and I met up with a friend for dinner at An.  The place and the food are gorgeous.  Yeah, the food was really really pretty.  Thank goodness it was tasty too!  I’m so proud of Cary for having a place like this.  It’s perfect for a business meal, rehearsal dinner, or just happy hour on a nice day on their terrace.

Jason and I shared the Bengal rolls (chopped chicken, peas, curry, onions, mango chili dipping sauce) to start.  Oh so cute and delish.  We especially liked the sauce.

I had the diablo chicken (tempura free range chicken, roasted peanut, sesame seed, cashew, black vinegar, spicy honey sauce, jasmine rice) for my main course.  It was so flavorful, and I’d definitely order it again (and again…).  DH had the lemongrass beef (sautéed shaved beef sirloin, onions, rice noodles, bean sprouts, mint, cucumber, peanuts, pickled vegetables, nuoc ma), which was good if a bit boring.  Our friend raved about his curry lamb chops, and they did look great.

I was also pretty impressed with their beer options.  They have five different Japanese beers, one from Vietnam, and one from Thailand.  I enjoyed a Victory Prima Pils (Pennsylvania, reviews) and a Flying Dog Pale Ale (Colorado, reviews).

Bonus tips: If you want to visit An and are on your own dime (like us), pick up a discounted gift certificate from  Also, it’s super easy to make a reservation there using Open Table.
