When deprived of flavorful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon to Bao Noodles. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of Vietnamese dinner fare.
- For $7, you get $15 worth of Vietnamese lunch fare.
Bao Noodles tantalizes taste buds with an expansive menu of soups, seafood, noodles, and entrées inspired by authentic Hue, Hanoi, Saigon, and Mekong River Delta recipes. Suppress lunchtime longing with a bowl of Ða Nãng crabmeat-noodle soup with fresh rice noodles in a rich seafood broth ($9.95), or a bowl of Huế-style, spicy beef-and-pork noodle soup with bean sprouts, rice vermicelli, and a spicy broth ($8.95), accompanied by a side of grilled eggplant ($5.95).
