Tempting Five-Buck Bites at Noodle Theory's New Happy Hour
|Kim chee mini-burger and sweet potato shoestrings.|
A hamburger dressed with kimchi on a rosemary roll and served with shoestring sweet potato fries was big enough for two of us to have a couple of good, juicy, zingy bites. A bowl of little shrimp and jalapeño slices were fried to a pleasing crispness, with extra credit for the inclusion of bacon bits in the tempura batter. Two soft corn tacos, brightened with Asian slaw, could barely contain their heaps of fluffy ahi tuna.

The $5 price also extends to a newly created white-wine soju sangria with Asian pear, lychee, and orange, in which the whole lychee becomes the equivalent of the mezcal worm. Singha and Lost Coast Great White beers are $3.
