5 Spices Tea House and Restaurant is a new Asian fusion restaurant that has just opened in Mt. Kisco and features a menu featuring cuisine from China, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. The eatery also features a wide range of teas that compliment the menu. The interior is modern with Asian design influences.

Starters:  We sampled a few of the items from the Starters menu including some of the soups.   We ordered the Udon Noodle Soup with chicken which is quite large and could be a meal in itself or shared.  The broth was light and not salty like so many  Asian soups.  The dish was filled with chicken and noodles and was quite satisfying.  It is also available in Wonton and Shrimp.

Another starter we tried was Satay Chicken and Satay Beef which is a Malaysian dish that features grilled meat cooked on a wood skewer. It was cooked to perfection and was very tasty. A nice portion that again can be enjoyed alone or shared.

Our last starter was a light and delicious choice of the Lettuce Wrap with Chicken.  The fresh crisp lettuce leaf  cradles the tasty soft chicken to create a nice light appetizer.  The dish also can be ordered with Roast Pork or Duck.

Main Course:  To get a feel for the menu we sampled a variety of items from Chinese classics to some items we have never had before.    The Pad Thai Noodles with Chicken was a great choice with soft spicy noodles, veggies and a slice of fresh lime.  This was an interesting interpretation of the classic Thai dish that was pleasantly not too spicy, so feel free to indulge.

Another interesting choice was the Tofu Clay Pot  with fried tofu and mixed veggies that is cooked and served in a clay pot.  The dish was bubbling and quite hot as it was placed on the table.  It was delicious with the tofu being mild yet flavorful and soft with a light crispy edge.

As a seafood lover I could not resist trying the Seafood Delight a wonderful dish of fresh scallops, prawns,squid and stir fried with asparagus, green beans, mushrooms and carrots.  A nice healthy dish that will satisfy the seafood lover.

For the traditional Chinese cuisine lover, many of your favorites are here including Sesame Chicken served in a brown sauce with broccoli and LoMein.   LoMein, Fried Rice and Stir Fried Udon is all available with a choice of veggies, chicken, beef, or shrimp.

I would be remiss if I did not mention the wonderful selection of teas available.  We sampled the Jasmine green tea with a soft bouquet and smooth healthy taste.  We also tried the Mango green tea which was sweet and flavorful and did not require a sweetener. There is a variety of wonderful teas and juices on the menu to sample.

The menu is full of fresh, healthy choices including salads, steamed veggies, and of course a full menu of classic dishes from various areas of Asia.   5 Spices is a nice addition to the dining scene in downtown Mt. Kisco.
