Mr. Chao's Asia Bistro

Simple, stylish decor and fresh, well-prepared dishes make this tiny Ahwatukee strip mall spot an unsung gem. A touch of red chile gives many dishes a kick -- try the tangy, crispy Mr. Chao's chicken, or the sweet but fiery dry-braised prawns. Even vegetables are jazzed up here; the spicy garlic eggplant entrée makes a humble vegetable into a delicacy.
