Morgantown Edition: Oryza Asian Grill

Oryza

I read a story recently about why it's so difficult to build the Chipotle of pasta. Fast-casual restaurants are popping up all over, and new styles of food are built into this concept (even if pasta is tough). And, considering Asian is one of my favorites, I was excited to learn about Oryza.

Oryza Asian Grill is a fast-casual concept where you order at the counter, they make it right in front of you, and it's all fresh. It's a healthy, on-the-go option that you customize yourself!

This restaurant, which is located in the newer plaza across from Suncrest Kroger, is very clean, modern and simple.

The menu is easy, just pick the following:
