#rivertonbiz, brought to you by Grace Andrus with Edward Jones, shares the stories of the local movers and shakers of our Fremont County economy.
On the heels of the Rusty Truck’s opening earlier this month, Riverton is getting another culinary treat. Asian Cuisine #2 is now open for business from 11am – 9pm 7 days a week at 302 North Federal in Riverton.
We know what you might be thinking – and no, this place has nothing to do with the Asian Cuisine restaurant that was in Lander on Main Street for a while.
Asian Cuisine isn’t just another ethnic food joint. Like the Rusty Truck, it’s a Fremont County success story.
Beverly Moody (pictured above with her husband Justin Moody), the owner of Asian Cuisine is originally from Laos and just five years ago she was running Bev’s Hair & Beyond in Lander.
“There are a lot of us from all over Southeast Asia around here and we get together, you know. People who owned restaurants used to come to my house and eat. They’d say ‘Beverly, can I take some home? Your cooking is so good. Don’t open a restaurant, ok?’ So one day I decided, why not?”
Not wanting to compete with friends in Lander, she jumped in her car and just started driving. When she passed through Worland she said, “there are a lot of farmers here and not much Asian food. I’ll open here.”
And open she did. Asian Cuisine in Worland is reportedly very successful. Now she’s expanded back to Fremont County with Asian Cuisine #2.
Beverly says her food is special because she cooks dishes in the restaurant exactly how she likes to eat at home. “I don’t care if you’re American or Mexican or Asian. You get what I would make for myself….Except for spice; you can choose how hot you want it.”
The menu at Asian Cuisine has classic Asian food and some unique dishes from all over Southeast Asia: Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos.
“I cook everything fresh. Nothing is frozen or made ahead. Good food makes people smile.”
Asian Cuisine #2 is open from 11am – 9pm daily and they offer delivery! Give them a call at 307-856-1919 or stop by for lunch or dinner at 302 North Federal in Riverton.
