Shiok! was established in 2012 by Caroline Tan. Having moved from Singapore to Mountain Home, she realized that the City of Mountain Home and the Mountain Home Air Force Base community lacked a good authentic Asian restaurant.
Even the best Chinese restaurants in Boise were a far cry from what is offered in the bigger cities like Los Angeles and Las Vegas. She chanced upon the famous Scrubby's restaurant and spent a year remodeling it. Shiok! had our soft opening on May 10, 2012. On July 16, 2012 , we celebrated our Grand Opening graced by the previous Mayor of Mountain Home, the Honorable Tom Rist.
Shiok! celebrated our 4th year in business, thanks to our loyal supporters and guests from Mountain Home AFB, the surrounding cities of Mountain Home, Grand View, Hammett, Glenns Ferry and Boise, and folks who simply googled and found us through the wonderful reviews that we received. Thanks for making us the Number 1 restaurant in Mountain Home and the Best Asian Restaurant in Idaho! As a matter of fact, we were cited by Roger Brooks International as one of the best Asian restaurant in the Northwest United States.
