Though the Great Wall of China has won the accolades of history, the Great Backscratcher of Vietnam, built to reach any itchy corner across the nation, saved more lives than can be counted on a single hand. Feast upon equally ingenious Vietnamese creations with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of food and drinks at Noodles @ Boba Tea House.
Noodles @ Boba Tea House forks over authentic Vietnamese cuisine to the thirsty and hungry masses. The restaurant's menu offers a cornucopia of creative fare, highlighted by pho, a meaty noodle soup combining Chinese and French influences ($7–$7.95). Assorted sushi selections ($5.95–$14.95) splash their talents across Noodles’ menu, right up against rice dishes ($7.50–$10.95) and other Asian delicacies. The restaurant’s children’s menu is the perfect training ground for young chopstickers to sharpen skills necessary for trapping helpless food, and the beverage list dances a similarly universal dance with chilled coffees and warm teas ($3.25–$3.75) that calm the mind faster than rain drops piffing on a thin, tin roof.
Founded by three sisters in 2007, Noodles @ Boba Tea House is a home built for hanging out—featuring high ceilings, chic lighting, and flat-screen TVs that spark both conversation and contemplation.
Noodles @ BTH
If Noodles @ BTH strikes visitors as welcoming and familiar, the reason may be that the Vietnamese restaurant’s owners share more than a dedication to fine boba teas—all three of them are sisters. They have merged steamy Vietnamese dishes with milky teas in a casual, laid-back setting. Noodles @ BTH opened in 2013 as a spinoff of the original Fort Worth location, which opened in 2007, serving mostly the same menu with a focus on convenience and walk-up ordering.
Bowls of the restaurant’s signature pho—a Vietnamese noodle soup—line tables alongside spring rolls filled with charbroiled chicken. Piles of rice share plates with marinated grilled pork, beef, and spicy lemongrass chicken, straws fish for treasure in boba teas, whose watermelon, papaya, and green-jasmine-flavored waters brim with chewy pearls of tapioca.
