Chef Susan Feniger of Border Grill fame is opening a cool takeout window next week and it sounds delicious and totally affordable.

Feniger's new concept, known as Blue Window, will serve up a menu of Asian-inspired street food from a window next door to her Highland Avenue restaurant, Mud Hen Tavern, in Hollywood. The menu(.pdf) will feature tasty-sounding BBQ bao buns, gochujang chicken wings and banh mi sandwiches—all of which will be available for just $7 each. And as an added bonus to those looking to skip out on meat, there will be vegan versions of all of the dishes. (Yes, yes, we know you can find bao and banh mi for less elsewhere, but it's still a pretty sweet deal for a quality bite in Hollywood, especially with veggie options.)

There will be poke at Blue Window, too, of course. And there will be sides like a refreshing watermelon shiso salad for five bucks, as well as Vietnamese coffee and Thai iced tea.

Blue Window will begin service this coming Monday and will operate from noon to 10 p.m. weekdays. To keep things fresh—and perhaps as a nod to the global fare of Street, Mud Hen's former incarnation—the menu at the window will completely change after six months. At that point, the takeout menu will take on a new theme.

After the opening of Moruno, the Spanish-inspired takeout window launched at the Original Farmers Market next week, we may be beginning to see a window trend here. And we're totally cool with that delicious development.

Blue Window is located at 742 N Highland Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038, (323) 203-0500.
