Like Starsky and Hutch, Sonny and Cher, and Donny and Marie, China and Japan embody entirely different flavors that both work surprisingly well together and look great in bell-bottoms. Rejoice in this perfect Pacific pairing with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Asian fare, sushi, and drinks at Red Chopsticks Bistro in Cherry Grove.
Red Chopsticks Bistro infuses the culinary traditions and complementary flavors of Japan and China into one border-eschewing menu. Taste buds take off on their own trans-oceanic trek by sampling palate-popping appetizers such as egg rolls ($1.50 each), pot stickers ($5.75 for six), or shrimp toast ($5.25 for four). Warmed mouth caves can then be set ablaze with a fiery forkful of spicy plate options, including shredded pork in garlic sauce ($9.95), spicy sizzling beef ($13.95), or the kid-friendly pu pu platter ($5.25). Those with sweeter tastes or angrier pet bears will rejoice in the saccharine-topped honey chicken ($10.95) or honey shrimp ($12.95).
For cylinder-centric cuisinists, fish-rolled solace awaits amid Red Chopsticks' sushi selection, boasting oceanic eats such as the eel cucumber roll ($5.95), spicy tuna ($6.50), or self-proclaiming yum-yum roll ($5.50). Guests can also quell spiced palates with a libation from the restaurant's drink list, replete with beverages imported from the East, including Japanese Sapporo beer ($4.25), gekkeikan sake ($6.95), and plum royal wine ($4.50).
