If you are in the Cranberry Township, Pa., area looking for the perfect place for a date night, Jimmy Wan’s has something for everyone! Their menu includes sushi, dim sum, and traditional Asian meals. They even have a full gluten-free menu and many vegetarian/vegan options. You can’t go wrong with this restaurant!
My perfect meal would start with a light, refreshing cucumber Saketini (made with Kettle One vodka and sake). For an appetizer, the fried chive dumplings, the famous Godzilla roll made with salmon and cream cheese, or the seaweed salad are delicious starters! The sashimi ceviche is always fresh and also makes a perfect appetizer.
Jimmy Wan’s large portions make them shareable (though you will probably want to eat them all yourself!). My all-time favorite entrée is the black pepper shrimp and scallops. The sauce has just enough kick, and everything is always cooked and seasoned to perfection, with a great veggie-to-seafood ratio.
Did I mention the portions are HUGE? After all that amazing food, remember that you don’t want to miss out on dessert! I just can’t decide which I love more—the fudge brownie or the tiramisu, both of which come from the amazing Oakmont Bakery.
As if the food and drinks aren’t great enough, the restaurant is beautiful, and the staff is very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Usually, you will also see the dapper gentleman Jimmy Wan himself making his way through the dining room to greet customers and make sure everything is up to par.
You can’t ask for a much better date night!
