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 & 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 ($13.99) presents prawns on a bed of noodles accented by an aromatic blend of basil, garlic, chilis, and olive oil. The pollo alli mattone ($12.99) quells carnivorous cravings with a juicy half chicken grilled beneath a brick, marinated with fresh herbs and garlic, and accompanied by a helping of angel-hair pasta, zucchini, and carrots. Mexican favorites also dot the menu, with offerings such as carne asada topped with mexican salsa ($11.99), and the bistec y camaron ($15.99), which pairs an expertly grilled new york strip with shrimp and spicy prawns.
