A few Friday nights ago my boyfriend and I went to the House of Hunan in Medina for dinner. It was a wonderful Asian restaurant located at 18 Public Square in downtown Medina, Ohio. The atmosphere was very inviting. the front of the restaurant opens up completely to the outdoors where you can sit out on the sidewalk in a little courtyard.
The food is authentic Chinese, with some fusion. The tables are set up with wooden bamboo placemats and chopsticks for a"real Chinese adventure in dining!". They did not serve domestic beer so I ordered Kirin Light, which tasted like Bud Light, only better. It was light and crisp and hoping to purchase some at a local beverage store.
They served us Steak Rollups for dinner. My plate had nine rollups stuffed with crabmeat, scallions, and cheese, then smothered in a brown gravy with water chestnuts. The steak was so tender that it melted in my mouth. Each bite brought out a burst of the crab/cheese stuffing, coupled with the gravy, that just made me want more.
The prices of meals are a bit higher than average Chinese eateries, but worth every penny. We look forward to returning there again and sampling other dishes.

I am inviting all of my clients and friends to share their stories of eating adventures and provide me with reviews of their experiences at a favorite eatery. I hope this will help all of our new neighbors who might be looking for a place to eat near their new homes. Rick Cyngier
