$20 for Two Groupons, Each Good for $20 Worth of Asian Cuisine at Noodles ($40 Value)
Chefs infuse teriyaki rice bowls, fragrant curries, and traditional Thai-style noodle soups with multiple levels of spice. The menu includes an edamame starter ($4.95) and entrees such as Golden Noodle with both crispy and soft egg noodles and choice of meat or tofu marinated in a spicy coconut curry sauce, and their signature beef stew noodle soup with marinated beef and vegetables in a Thai-style beef broth.
Determined to introduce the public’s collective palate to creative Asian-inspired food, the cooks at Noodles prepare their namesake dish following both traditional Thai recipes and their own unique formulas. They craft a multitude of soups ranging from the classic udon noodle soup to the unconventional nava noodle soup, which combines seafood, minced chicken, fish balls, fish cake, and crushed peanuts in a spicy lime broth.
Customers shouldn’t let the name fool them, though—the culinary team has more than noodles and broths in their wheelhouse. They also prepare six meat-based rice bowls and 10 salads that combine ingredients such as steamed shrimp, mint, crushed peanut, and carrots. The chefs also have their own specialties, including shrimp and tofu curry and Duck in Red—roasted duck simmered in panang-curry sauce and topped with string beans, bell peppers, and herbs. This is not to be confused with Duck in White—a female duck on her wedding day.
