Happy Friday! It is time to take full advantage of the summer deals during my vacation.
One of these deals is the bento box lunch special from 12pm-4pm Monday-Saturday at China Grill in New York City.
Did you know that China Grill was around for almost thirty years? Well after one of the best fusion lunches I have had in a while, I can definitely testify to that.
Earlier this week, I caught up with a friend for lunch and both of us were definitely excited to explore the options. So below are the two bento boxes we created. Both of us ordered the Peking duck salad and wasabi mashed potatoes. My friend ordered the dumplings and salmon teriyaki and I was on the noodle box and shrimp red curry. Our bento boxes were “to die for”, presentation was beautiful but more importantly the taste was on point. It was definitely worth the $19.87 spent on this meal.
In addition to the bento box, we decided order the popular salted caramel soufflé ($20), which has to be ordered ahead of time and it is served only on the lunch menu.
After devouring the divine dessert, that was well balanced. The sponge cake, plus the cream and caramel definitely hit the spot.
It was after 4pm and happy hour begins. My other friend contacted me and informed me that I have to come here for happy hour. It turns out she was right. The menu offers a lot of options for drinks such as cocktails and bar bites from their appetizer menu. So I settled for the lychee and cucumber cocktail ($8) with the lotus root dumplings ($7). Both choices were delicious.
Overall service for lunch and happy hour were awesome. My friend and I were satisfied and I can’t wait to share this experience with my friends and peers. Cheers to China Grill and their continuing success. See you soon China Grill!
