The other day, the Mister and I decided to check out Vien, a new quick eats spot in the West Village, after a thumbs up recommendation from Team Finance Foodie's Simone. Dubbed the "Asian Chipotle", Vien offers light, fresh and relatively healthy customizable noodle and rice bowls topped with assorted meats and dressing.

For less than $10 a bowl, Vien provides a hot and healthy lunch that leaves you feeling satisfied but not sluggish - if I worked closer to the area, I'd for sure be here on the regular. Bottom line: if you are looking for a flavor filled fresh taste of the Orient on the run, Vien is the spot for you.
