N.O.W. Review [2]

During my last trip to the Water Club and Borgata Casino, we were all starving after a long day at the blackjack tables. In attempt to have something quick and easy, we settled on N.O.W., which offers a wide foray into quite a few Asian cuisines. 

Kyoto Udon [$14]
Stir-fried udon noodles, shrimp, chicken, roast pork, bean sprouts, green peppers, scallions, carrots, onions, white pepper, sesame, soy sauce

The udon had great chew and held the accompanying sauce nicely. The veggies were all fresh and had bite, with the sweetness of the roast pork and the juiciness of the shrimp and chicken coming through. Great melange of flavors and a humongous portion to boot.

General Tso's Chicken [$15.50]
Chicken breast, broccoli, spicy garlic sauce, steamed white rice 

I hate to admit it, but I was in the mood for some General Tso's. And I'm glad I was. This was how it always should be. Crispy on the outside, with the sauce coating each nugget, but not drenched. The chicken was juicy and the broccoli was steamed nicely, but not to the point of being withered. Exactly what I was looking for. 

So if you're looking for affordable Asian cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere, N.O.W. is probably your best bet at the Borgata.
