The best part about eating Chinese food is the confidence that comes when more than one billion people tacitly support your culinary decision; the second-best part is that their bakers can see the future. Savor the flavors of the Middle Kingdom and beyond with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of Asian fare and drinks at Chopstixx Café in the Elkridge Shopping Center.
Though Chopstixx Café specializes in authentic Chinese street fare, its menu also charts out an edible map of Thailand, Japan, and Mongolia crisscrossed with sweet tributaries of bubble tea. An array of soups, salads, and appetizers, such as the steamed or pan-fried gyoza dumplings ($3.25) starts your meal off with the culinary equivalent of an exciting parkour chase through Tokyo before diving into the main plot with a plate of honey-sesame shrimp ($9.99), Malaysian kway teow ($9.99), or chicken yaki udon ($9.99), a Japanese-style noodle dish. Herbivores, meanwhile, can skip the hassle of assembling a salad out of parsley garnishes and bitter tears with the café's bevy of vegetarian vittles, such as General Tso’s crispy tofu ($7.99).
Chopstixx also sates the adventurous appetites of lunchers-on-the-go with its street meals menu, which mimics authentic dishes sold from carts by Asian street vendors. Finely ground pork stew with a simmered egg on top ($5.95) transports your taste buds to a bustling Hong Kong side street, then shoots them in slow motion amid a flock of doves, while the Taiwanese-style spicy basil chicken ($7) keeps one hand open for Chopstixx’s sweet bubble tea served with gummy tapioca balls at the bottom of the glass and sipped through a wide straw.
Colorful, pan-Asian dishes piled high with generous portions emerge hot out of the wok from the kitchen at Chopstixx Cafe. Sifting through the pages of the vast menu, diners will find familiar classics composed of super-fresh ingredients, including spicy General Tso's chicken and pad thai, as well as specialty dishes such as the steamed "Revolution Diet," which features tender shrimp and an array of healthy veggies. The kitchen also whips up crave-worthy bubble teas in fancy flavors such as lychee, passionfruit, and red bean.
