Unicorn Pan Asian Cuisine
Unicorn Pan Asian Cuisine draws its name from the owning family's first location in Vietnam. That first eatery opened more than 30 years ago under the name Ka'lin, translated as Chinese Unicorn, and its cuisine is as proud as its history. As owner Kiet Truong puts it, "We do not strive to be everything to everyone. We prepare delicious Asian dishes our way.…"
Unicorn's dinner menu reflects that. It boasts a collection of totally encapsulated four-course meals, with each entree complementing the intricate flavors of the other dishes it's paired with. The land course starts with lemongrass roasted quail before moving onto picked lotus-rootlet salad, then ends with bone-in oxtail stew with a sampling of desserts. Come lunch, the menu only offers á la carte dishes, with entrees such as duck in shanghai bok choy or seafood over crispy noodles. The kitchen produces a wealth of vegetarian dishes as well, with jasmine rice in a clay pot or panang curry with tofu and broccoli.
Unicorn's hip decor and club-like lighting enhance the dining experience. In one corner, pink light illuminates a wall-sized, clear wine rack, which showcases the restaurant's wine selection. Red light shimmers from ornate chandeliers throughout the dining room, and contemporary art is bathed in blue and red light near the full-service bar at the front of the eatery.
