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. Fill yourself with the visionary victuals of the masses with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet Chinese cuisine and drinks at Chow's Asian Bistro in the Cottonwood Mall.
Chow's Asian Bistro blends authentic Chinese cooking styles with the culinary offerings of other Asian cultures to create an eclectic menu of mouth-irrigating treats. The steamed, sea-salted Japanese beans of an edamame appetizer tastily initiate meal times ($3.50), and egg drop soup calms righteously angry palates with chicken broth, peas, egg flowers, and carrots ($3.50 for a cup). Noodlevores can slurp up Hong Kong noodles stir-fried with vegetables and chicken or pork ($8.95). Larger dinner doses include wild mushroom chicken, which plants wild mushrooms and broccoli on sliced chicken breast ($10.95), or seafood magic, a garlic-sauced selection of king crab, shrimp, scallops, and seasonal veggies ($16.95). Green tea ice cream ($4.50) or chocolate trilogy—which layers milk chocolate, chocolate mousse, white chocolate, on a dark chocolate base ($5.50)—finalizes the feast and bathes sweet teeth.
At Chow's Asian Bistro, an entourage of wine, beer, sake, and more strives to appease thirst; non-alcoholic options such as mandarin orange tea ($3 for a pot that serves two) and San Pellegrino mineral water ($3.75) are also available. Chow's does not use MSG in any of its fresh chow, and hot dishes can be spiced up according to the thickness of your tongue's coat of wax.
