Chicken is the most influential protein, its flavor comparable to most other meats and its dance moves found at all successful weddings. Enjoy nature's clucking style-maker with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of internationally inspired chicken dishes for lunch or dinner at Ultimate Chicken Bistro in Falls Church.
Ultimate Chicken Bistro's poultry prodigies construct an appetizing and internationally inspired menu of succulent chicken dishes from scratch with fresh ingredients. Diners sample poultry from the far east in the form of korean fried chicken ($9 for a half, $16 for a whole), with fulsome legs and wings shaped from morning jiujitsu workouts on the beach. Poultry shares plate-space with hibachi shrimp, steak, or vegetables on the japanese teppanyaki entree ($7–$11), and spicy servings of chinese hunan chicken ($8) incite mouth warmth and tongue tingles. French-style dishes such as chicken à la française showcase a seared, golden-brown breast doused with sweet pink sauce and seasonal, locally grown vegetables ($10). Children nibble on seasoned popcorn chicken ($6), making sure they save valuable stomach real estate for the gallbladder's guest house or handmade desserts such as crème brûlée and fried-banana flambé ($5 each).
Ultimate Chicken Bistro strikes a casual-yet-elegant balance, with the dark hues of hardwood floors set against the sheen of brushed steel. Guest can sidle up to black granite countertops to cast inquisitive glances at chefs as they work behind glass, where happy diners can communicate their satisfaction through a series of clucks and unsuccessful attempts at flight.
Ultimate Chicken Bistro
Ultimate Chicken Bistro’s housemade dishes incorporate signature soy-garlic sauce, spicy crushed-red-pepper sauce, and ingredients from Asia and Europe. Yet, unsurprisingly, one ingredient dominates the list: chicken. The lengthy menu, broken down by the region from which each dish takes its inspiration, occasionally strays into shrimp, beef, or vegetables, but poultry steals the show. Prosciutto and swiss cheese stuffed inside a roasted chicken breast tempt diners to sample the chicken cordon bleu, and the Korean-style fried chicken's secret blend of spices is as mysteriously delicious as a steak pulled out of a magician’s hat. Inside the restaurant, sleek wood tables surround an open kitchen space behind glass, creating an inviting space to enjoy a rib-sticking meal.
