Aseoma in Squirrel Hill

26 Nov

Pittsburgh’s starting to finally get moving with food trucks, but our street food culture has a long way to go. Casual eats in this city aren’t nearly as creative or daring as ones offered in Los Angeles, Vancouver, or NYC. Aseoma seeks to shake up Pittsburgh’s street food scene, by offering Latin/Korean fusion type meals.

On one of many tired and hungry nights, we selected Aseoma for take out. I loved that I was able to place my order online. I really do not like talking on the phone, and I’m much happier being able to place my order on the internet.  Because we have a little one, we tend to eat early.  I stopped by to pick up our meal around 6pm.  I was disappointed to see that at that point the dining room was empty.  I didn’t know what kind of ambiance to expect from the fairly boring storefront, but it is really cool and stylish in there.  I’m not 100% on this, but I think it is BYOB.  It seemed like a nice little joint to have a fun evening out with some friends.

I ordered the Fire Beef tacos.  I have a VERY low tolerance for spicy foods, and these were just spicy enough to be flavorful.  The heat did not overwhelm the dish.  The tacos came with a few french fries on the side, which didn’t seem necessary for the meal.  My kid was happy to gobble them down, though…she loves fries!  I also had the bacon kimchi fried rice, which was a tasty twist on an old reliable favorite.

I like that Aseoma has predictable offerings like pho, and also more unpredictable/unique fare. I thought Aseoma was simply awesome, and I hope that the empty dining room when I stopped by is a function of timing. It would be a shame if Aseoma’s tasty food went unacknowledged.  We’re keeping Aseoma on the short list for our quick-inner needs!

    Yes, Aseoma is BYOB. I’ve tried many dishes there and have loved every one of them! As an extra bonus, they also deliver (www.aseoma.com).
