If you try something new, you might really enjoy it, even if it's filling balloons with Hot Wheels and throwing them off a bridge to see if they'll float. Try some internationally inspired fare with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of globally inspired pasta cuisine and nonalcoholic drinks at Lotsa Noodles.
Lotsa Noodles corrals recipes from across the globe to create sumptuous pasta dishes, rice specialties, sandwiches, and a cornucopia of other internationally inspired eats. Blazin Cajun fettuccini noodles ($7.99) cut a piquant path toward taste buds, and pad thai ($7.24) melds rice noodles, veggies, peanuts, eggs, and a signature sauce to craft the classic Thai-style noodle dish. Diners take wardrobe tips from the fashionable bowtie pesto ($7.75) as it sashays across a plate of sautéed mushrooms, tomatoes, and creamy basil sauce. Forgo the starch in favor of a mélange of chicken, broccoli, and cheese ($7.99) teeming with sautéed veggies in a creamy blend of monterey-jack-and-cheddar sauce. The eatery's steaming dream team of soups, which includes creamy tomato basil or the veggie-laden pot sticker ($3.99 for a cup; $12.99 for a half-gallon), keeps winter weather and lunch-thieving snowmen at bay, lending patrons enough time to savor the mac 'n' cheese pizza ($7.49) or crisp sun-dried-tomato salad ($3.99 for half; $15.99 for a group portion).
