Asian Art Museum

While most museum goers flee galleries during lunchtime, the Asian Art Museum enjoys an influx of visitors at noon, and many didn't come for the world-class collection. People who work in the Civic Center walk in with authority, bypassing the ticket office and heading straight into Café Asia, where Chef Melinda Quirino offers a seasonal menu at reasonable prices. Offerings include steamed fish wrapped in a banana leaf, served with jasmine rice and snake beans, clay pot tea smoked lamb stew, BBQ baby pork spareribs, and a variety of noodles and soups. They also offer a variety of artisan loose leaf tea, including our favorite, the magnolia blossom oolong, harvested in the high mountains of China.
