The first westerner to taste Asian food was explorer Marco Polo, who worked up a notorious appetite playing hide-and-seek in swimming pools. Lose your hunger on a blissful Far Eastern adventure with today's deal: $15 for $30 worth of Asian cuisine prepared before your eyes at Stir Crazy at Northbrook Court, Oakbrook Center, Woodfield Mall, and in Warrenville.
Veteran chefs prepare Stir Crazy’s Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and Vietnamese dishes on sizzling woks right in the dining room. So while diners-to-be ponder the menu of more than 50 traditional and innovative Asian creations, they'll witness knives quartering veggies and flames lapping at the edges of the wok as the sights, smells and sounds of the kitchen come alive around them. Should your taste buds riot at the sight of all this mouth-watering action, satisfy them with an appetizer like the Ahi tuna and avocado poke ($9), a spicy stack of fresh fish and cool veggies. For main courses, choose from an array of entrees like the sweet and sour chicken, a dish featuring tender pieces of crispy chicken tossed with broccoli, red and green peppers, onions, carrots, and pineapple in a sweet and tangy sauce ($12.75). Or manage your intake with the Crazy Feature menu, which offers smaller-in-portion but towering-in-flavor classics like Mongolian beef or sesame chicken, served with a crispy veggie spring roll (all $8.88).
Outside-the-menu thinkers won't feel hemmed in as they head to Stir Crazy's Market Bar, where they can create their own customized meal. Choose a hearty protein like chicken, beef sirloin or ahi tuna, then pick a rice or noodle, and select from a vast, colorful collection of fresh vegetables. Finally, add one of Stir Crazy's house-made sauces (gluten-free options are also available) and let it all ride in a red-hot Stir Crazy wok.
