Hungry stomachs are famous for voicing their frustration with growls and grumbles, but when persistently ignored they have also been known to bark, moo, and form a capella groups with neighboring internal organs. Quiet bothersome bodies with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Asian fare at E Cafe in Orem.
Proudly crafting tasty dishes from Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, and other Asian locales, the newly opened E Cafe presents diners with a menu of palate-pleasing options to satisfy both famished folks and casual nibblers. With hours extending late into the night, the eatery is a swift and tasty choice for hungry sleepwalkers dreaming of crispy calamari ($3.99). Guests nosh on a tempting array of tapas, such as edamame with sea salt ($2.49), a skewer of teriyaki-marinated pork ($3.49), or the delightful duo of fried tofu and a sidekick of sweet and spicy Thai sauce ($2.99). Succulent meats and a mélange of spices band together to form entrees such the Japanese-style chicken katsu ($6.99) and pad thai with a choice of chicken or beef ($6.99), and red and green thai curries pit baby corn against mushrooms as they battle it out over rice ($6.99 each). Taking up residence in the former abode of Hello Yogurt, E Cafe's dining room has a welcoming atmosphere for eat-in diners and takeout patrons who have to get home before their cars turn back into pumpkins.
