I received my food in under 10 minutes, which was quick by OtG standards, and carried it back to my waiting husband and son. I was disappointed to see that they gave me sweet potato fries instead of tater tots, but maybe they ran out or I could have even ordered incorrectly. My disappointment was short-lived once I put a forkful of those garlic noodles in my mouth, however. After just one bite I picked up the container from the "share" area and tried to hoard it for myself. The noodles were slightly chewy without being tough or undercooked, and it was a huge serving. They were topped with pieces of grilled chicken, sliced green onions and diced peanuts. The chicken was tender and juicy, and had just the right amount of seasonings. I find that sometimes these dishes can be either too greasy or too salty but this was neither. It was just fabulous, and I was so happy with my selection.
The Five Spice Grilled Chicken Garlic Noodles are not a regular menu item, so they were on special for this week. A bunch of other people around me ordered them as well so perhaps their popularity will help them jump into regular rotation.
