I had the opportunity earlier this week to take my family and check out the new Tin Drum AsiaCafe in Tampa, FL. Tin Drum AsiaCafe originated in Atlanta, GA, but they are opening new stores here in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. In fact, they have plans to open many stores in the near future.
What is Tin Drum AsiaCafe? Tin Drum AsiaCafe is not your typical Asian Restaurant. Their dynamic menu mixes Asian flare with bold flavors. They are unique in that they offer dishes from Thailand, Pakistan, Japan, India China, Singapore, and Vietnam all on one menu lineup! They also offer Gluten Free and Vegetarian items which is a huge plus!
The decor inside of the Tin Drum AsiaCafe is done to perfection. There are colorful balloons hanging from the ceiling and an Asian flare is present throughout the entire store with the wall hangings and color artwork.
My son Drew and I had the Sweet and Sour Chicken Stir-Fry. It was to die for! Everything about the dish is so fresh! The pineapples, green peppers and onions burst in my mouth with delicious flavor. The chicken in the dish is quite tasty as well. They marinate the chicken in Lemongrass to give it a unique yet delicious flavor. It is then coated with a crispy breading and cooked to perfection!
My son Brady and my Mom had the Teriyaki Chicken Stir-Fry. They really liked this dish as well. I took a bit of Brady’s to taste test it and it was yummy! The Chicken Teriyaki Stir-Fry has fresh mushrooms, cabbage, onions, scallions, carrots and a sweet soy glaze all served over a bed of white steamed rice.
Brady is a Chopstick Master!
I can’t begin to tell you how delicious that these dishes taste. Each dish is made fresh and brought right to your table steaming hot! Tin Drum AsiaCafe really cares about their customers and they will even customize your dishes for you if you prefer. For example, if you are watching your carb intake you can get your dish over Sauteed Spinach instead of rice. Just ask them and they are more than willing to accomodate your menu preference.
One of the best-selling menu items at Tin Drum AsiaCafe is their Crab N Cheese Spring Rolls. All I can say is that these are little gems of yumminess! You won’t be able to eat just one! These spring rolls are filled with a Crab and a Green Onion Cheese Mixture that is out of this world! It is served with a Sweet N Sour Dip that is sure to knock your socks off!
I especially love how Tin Drum AsiaCafe has a huge focus on helping the needy in the Tampa Bay area. In fact,Tin Drum Asiacafé is promoting sales of its signature chocolate-dipped fortune cookies to benefit Eckerd’s Friends of the Children, a revolutionary program in Tampa Bay that pairs foster children with full-time, salaried, trained mentors through high school graduation.
One of my favorite promotions that Tin Drum AsiaCafe offers is on Saturday and Sunday. Get a FREE Kids Meal with the purchase of an adult entree. Pack up the family and head out to Tin Drum AsiaCafe for a yummy lunch or dinner!
The Tampa Tin Drum AsiaCafe location is at 3689 Tampa Rd, Ste 305, Tampa Fl. 34677.
