Eating is necessary for human survival, along with breathing, sleeping, and remaining still while a curious velociraptor rummages through your closet. Practice survival tactics with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian and Mexican fare at Angelica's Italian and Mexican Restaurant in Sparks.
The bicultural chefs at Angelica's celebrate two culinary traditions, sautéing and grilling a menu of both Italian and Mexican savories made from scratch. Culinary artisans craft gnocci alla gorgonzola ($11.99) using the same techniques used to construct the Roman Coliseum, rolling potato dumplings by hand, topping them with a chicken breast, and dousing everything in gorgonzola-cream sauce. The linguini alli scampi presents prawns on a bed of noodles accented by an aromatic blend of basil, garlic, chilies, and olive oil ($13.99). Meanwhile, the conteletta di manzo ($16.99) quells carnivorous cravings with a juicy one-pound rib-eye steak adorned with lemon-parsley sauce and accompanied by a baby arugula salad softly cooing in its bassinet. Mexican favorites also dot the menu, with offerings such as carne asada topped with mexican salsa, and a regular burrito ($7.99) stuffed with generous portions of either chicken or pork as well as rice, beans, tomatoes, and cheese ($11.99).
