Red Parrot Asian Bistro- Turf Valley Towne Center, MD

My mom, brother, and I decided to try the Red Parrot Asian Bistro in Turf Valley Towne Square for dinner. The modern themed interior showcased awesome and funky light fixtures that made the restaurant appear way cool!

My mom ordered the Pad Thai Tofu. This dish was
based on rice noodles stir-fried with tofu and a variety of vegetables. My mom said the tofu was refreshing because it was lightly fried as opposed to deep fried. The seasonings were well balanced: fish sauce, garlic, and onion. There was also a generous amount of fresh bean sprouts and sprinkled peanuts. 

My brother ordered General Tso's Chicken. Even though the chicken was soft and tender like their Sesame Chicken, the sauce was very spicy (unlike the Sesame Chicken). He would've preferred a more mild sauce but that didn't stop him from eating the whole dish. I would recommend that you have a full glass of water/liquid near you at all times when consuming this dish.

I ordered the Sesame ChickenTerrific presentation. The thick sesame sauce gave the
 chicken a sweet taste. However, the
texture of the chicken was too soft. I would've preferred
 the outside of the chicken to be more crispy. But the dish
was very tasty and I ate every last morsel of it.

Overall, I would say that this is the type of restaurant that you can go out with your friends to hang out because it's a hip place, everything is lit up and colorful, and the food is plentiful and flavorful. The only downside to the Red Parrot is that our food took a little longer to arrive than I would of liked.
