Running around Prudential Center from the press room to the press box, I stopped and asked each security guard and Pru Center employee what the scoop was on the new food. What’s great? What should I try out?
Every single response was: I don’t know.
None of the staff has tried out the new food around the arena. No one has tips or is swearing by anything. They can’t even tell me where I can find those bacon chocolate chip cookies!!! You know what that means, right? I have to figure it out for all of us.
My first stop Friday night was at my favorite digs on the Main Concourse…Asian cuisine at a restaurant called Yoehi’s (I could be wrong about the name because it’s hard to decipher what the sign says).
The new vendor, Legends, has updated the menu for my old haunt.
I ordered the Curry Beef, thinking it would be like last year’s Asian food I ordered…bland and crap. Imagine my surprise when I opened up the container to see fresh cilantro and toasted coconut on top.
I pushed the food around with my fork and noticed that the carrots were done just the way I like them in curry. I took one bite and was amazed at how good this was. I couldn’t eat it all, so I took the leftovers home.
When I woke up the next morning, all I could think about was that curry [actually, right now, all I can think about is that curry]. It was just as good the second time around.
Sure, not everyone thinks of having curry when they go to a hockey game, but considering most are coming straight from the office to the game, this is not a bad dinner option. What I can’t wait to try are the different ramen noodle soups on the menu.
For sushi lovers, fyi, they were making the sushi fresh to order (which is a very good thing).
I’ll be hitting the Upper Concourse later this week to find my next PruEats. Oh, and if you find the bacon chocolate chip cookies, let me know where they are.
