Mora Asian Kitchen
A medley of modern Asian cuisine and sushi in Bolingbrook
Mora Asian Kitchen at 627 E Boughton Rd., Bolingbrook (630 410-8043)opened in late September in the Promenade Mall. The family-owned business builds on the success of its first restaurant, Mora Asian Fusion in Plainfield.
“Mora Asian Kitchen allows us flexibility,” says co-owner Jason Morales, “The menu is constantly changing and pushing the envelope.”
A popular dish is kale and Brussels sprouts salad. It’s flash fried and served with a house-made sweet chilli sauce. Notable entrées include fresh octopus, maple-glazed duck and a pork belly dish. There’s a full fresh-rolled sushi menu and an impressive saké bar as well. Dinner prices with appetizer and entrée range from $25 – $30.
Morales says the underlying premise is to bring some big-city culture to the suburbs. The food, contemporary ambiance, music and service all are part of the package.
Mora Asian Kitchen is open Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. The place seats about 75 and an additional 50 on a seasonal patio.Edit Module
