You don’t have to be a vegetarian to love this new appetizer at Darwin’s on 4th. Fresh green asparagus is dipped into a light tempura batter, fried and placed in a soft flour tortilla with julienned apples, carrots, honey roasted peanuts and sesame oil. But wait, there’s more—top that with lemon sake aioli and top that with charred tomatillo salsa. For $6 a plate I recommend two or three orders. It’s that good.
