For years, European navigators searched for a direct route to Asia's tasty cuisine, eventually burrowing through the earth and accidentally rediscovering Luxembourg. Blaze a path toward savory satisfaction with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Asian fare & drinks at Noodle Bowl.
Noodle Bowl's expert culinarians compile lunch and dinner menus piled high with noodle-based entrees and classic Asian cuisine. A starter of chicken or beef satay kicks off meals with char-grilled gobbets of marinated meat on wooden skewers ($4.95-5.95). Main course noodles--such as soba, udon, or thin-rice varieties from China, Japan, and Thailand--soak in bowls of savory broth alongside vegetables and morsels of tender meat or shrimp, much like Betty Crocker does after a hard day's work. For a grilled entrée, cooks sear a flavorful medley of seasoned fish, zucchini, mushrooms, and onions on a flattop grill to create the tuna hibachi ($16.95). Otherwise, the chicken teriyaki platter ($11.95) comes fully loaded with salad, soup, steamed rice, steamed veggies, and a state of the art, antitheft device.
