Manna, Lancaster PA

Location: 2359 Oregon Pike, Lancaster, PA 17601, USA

My mom suggested we try Manna while I was in town. We stopped by for a late lunch/early dinner as we had a late breakfast and were the only ones in the place. We ordered and then they brought out some miso soup (which I forgot to photograph and was alright. I am not the biggest miso soup fan so) and some cucumber salad and spiced nuts. Apparently they come with everything. The cucumber salad was light and tasty (I love cucumbers so it was good) and the nuts were warm and spiced well.

Then in my quest to keep trying sushi I ordered an asparagus roll. I used to only be able to eat sushi if the rice were on the outside, but I have now found that I like it with the seaweed on the outside as well. This was sweet and delicious and I loved it. I am going to have to start making more sushi as I never did since I didn't really care for it. It is so simple, but so tasty.

Then I ordered the Pad Kee Mao - rice noodles with onions, carrots, mushrooms, asparagus and snow peas. This was so good. I love Thai food and I love rice noodle dishes and this is one of the best I have ever had. It was a little oily, but so so incredible I didn't really care. The flavors were amazing and I wish we would have been able to get back there again to try more of the dishes. I know the photo doesn't look like a lot of food, but they have these odd bowl plates - the center is a small bowl so it was actually a lot of food.

Overall - Mann had one of the best rice noodle dishes I have ever had. Everything they brought out was really good and I would definitely go back again. Definitely a highlight of my trip to Lancaster, and I wish we would have been able to eat there more than once. If I lived in the area I would go often.
