Though his chariot oil, sword polish, and fax paper are now obsolete, people still enjoy General Tso's chicken. Make a coordinated attack on hunger with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of authentic Chinese cuisine and dim sum at Lu Lu Seafood in University City.
Lu Lu Seafood's menu of authentic Chinese seafood and dim sum stems from the collaborative efforts of four main chefs each hailing from a different region of their native China. Patrons can commence feasts with handcrafted dim sum eats such as sticky rice enclosed in lotus leaves ($6.28) and steamed shark fin dumplings ($4.58) that circle ominously around diners before enchanting their taste buds. As bites of orange chicken ($10.98) or steamed tilapia fish ($19.98) flounder into awaiting mouths, eggplant doused in garlic sauce ($8.98) appeases vegetarian palates. Within its red walls adorned with golden dragons, Lu Lu Seafood dispenses special dim sum goodies from a cart every Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. or whenever fortune cookies instruct waiters to do so.

On weekends between 10:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., a cart laden with plated dim sum rolls through Lu Lu Seafood, delivering handcrafted treats such as pork shu mai or spare ribs in black bean sauce. Patrons can also dine on regional Chinese seafood such as live lobsters with ginger and scallions or hot pots simmering with fresh scallops, washing it all back with cocktails, smoothies, and milk tea laden with pearls of tapioca. The opulent crimson-and-gold eatery also houses private karaoke rooms with bottle service where guests can sing in English, Chinese, or Korean.
