Like witch hunting or photographing a marble bust of Abe Lincoln, the act of fusing two distinct cuisines often requires an abundance of natural light and tall hats. Light up your next convergence with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Asian cuisine at Noodle Bar in Lake Bluff.
Noodle Bar sates starving stomachs with a menu slathered in Southeast Asian dishes as well as fusion fare derived from Latin, European, and Japanese influences. Warm up for the mouth-stuffing voyage by munching on the fried calamari, with its sichuan-peppercorn crust and spicy capers wasabi aioli dipping sauce ($8), or the cucumber, sweet-cashews, and bell-pepper salad, dressed with crispy shallots and drops of honey ginger ($6). The chef's steamed fish—a palatable unification of codfish, ginger and lemongrass oil, and miso and black bean paste ($10)—paves the way for a liquid accompaniment, such as the mango lassi—a smooth blend of mango, yogurt, and lime ($4.50)—or the asian sunrise—a fruity fusion of lychee, pineapple, banana, and yogurt ($4.50).
