Most people don’t think Asian cuisine when checking out restaurants in Alaska—but overlooking the rich diversity of the restaurant options is a mistake. Juneau is home to a variety of Asian restaurants, like Chan’s Thai Kitchen. Try the Shrimp in a Blanket (wrapped in an eggroll), Tom Jeud Woon Sea featuring chicken and long noodles, Squid Pad Peht for squid fried calamari-style, or the deep fried tofu.

Little Hong Kong is where you’ll find BBQ spare ribs, silver-wrapped chicken, chicken wings and BBQ pork. Chinese green soup, egg foo young with your choice of chicken, shrimp, pork or veggies, and a number of fried rice choices make this a local favorite.

Alaska Spices Things Up

Peter’s Oriental Restaurant offers Chinese-American comfort food. Located in downtown and in a strip mall, it’s easily accessible, delicious and always popular for dine-in or carry out. It’s where you’ll find generous portions of your favorite dishes, perfect for crisp autumn nights.

Seong’s Sushi Bar and Chinese Takeout showcases the fresh seafood Juneau’s known for. Tuna tataki, sashimi, dumplings, and the specialty—the Heartattack with jalapeno and cream cheese deep fried—is sure to have you coming back for more.
