Satisfy urges for food on a stick with today's side deal: for $8, you get the signature dish and the signature martini (a $17 value) from Philippe Chow Express, located in the Flatiron District. This Groupon can only be redeemed Monday through Thursday, between the hours of noon and 7 p.m.
Rated by Zagat as one of New York's best Chinese restaurants, Philippe Chow Express offers quality chow, done with the speed and precision of a caffeinated hummingbird filling out last-minute tax returns. Enjoy Philippe Chow Express's signature dish, the chicken satay ($5)—poultry coated in a delicious carrot-juice-and-egg mixture, speared with bamboo skewers, and served with chef Philippe Chow's secret peanut sauce—between sips of the restaurant's signature lychee martini ($12), a savory splendor of Grey Goose vodka, lychee juice, coconut cream, fresh-squeezed lime juice, and triple sec. Get your Groupon, pull a stool up to the countertop in Philippe Chow Express's modernized diner-esque eating quarters anytime between Monday and Thursday, and make Saturday rue the fact that it wasn't born earlier.
Valid at Philippe Chow Express only.
