With Bentonville and Fayetteville just down the road, Rogers can get overlooked which is a shame. With places like Parkside Public, Levi's Gastrolounge, and Saiwok as options, Rogers should never be overlooked.
Saiwok is an order at the counter, get a number casual eatery slightly hidden in a shopping center in Rogers best known for affordably priced, delicious food. I love the casual, family friendly yet trendy atmosphere that includes a colorful mural on the wall and tasteful wooden tables.
The service is quick with each dish being brought to the table as it is completed rather than the full order being brought out. As we tend to order a variety of apps to share on our visits, I like this style. We get to start and app and, just before we're done, we have another dish to savor.
For me, the big highlight on the menu is any dish that includes their smoked pork belly. The smoked pork belly cheese fries, topped with a soft cooked egg to sauce the dish are addictive as is the smoked pork belly bao (steamed bun) which has a large slice of pork belly topped with a refreshing slaw. The big additional hit from our visits has been their brussell sprouts which are crisp and perfectly sauced.
