International restaurants remind American's that we live in a melting-pot nation and that sprinkling fried wontons in cereal does not make it multicultural cuisine. Lift your palate with today's Groupon: for $5, you get fried chicken or pork with rice, sauce, and dumplings (an $11 value) at New York Cravings’ Bian Dang, located at Food Gallery 32 in Midtown West.
The less movable relation of the famed NYC Cravings food truck, Bian Dang rewards anchored eaters with the same fresh and tasty eats as its mobile mother. With today's deal, the tastemakers at Bian Dang will load plates with starving souls' choice of Taiwanese-style fried chicken or fried pork chop, laid to final rest atop a pillow pile of white rice drenched in pork sauce ($8). A troop of four steamed pork dumplings ($3) escorts the main event to the tabletop, ready to knock out taste buds with flavor. Bian Dang keeps its doors open till 11:30 p.m., making it an ideal dinner option for night owls and pork-craved somnambulists.
