Like a tongue on a flagpole in February, sampling world cuisines results from curiosity and a shortage of popsicles. Rein in restless taste buds with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of global fare at Around the World in Mt. Pearl.
Owner Lesley Bland has carefully culled the entrees on Around the World's well-travelled lineup of menus from the world's tastiest cuisines, creating a memorable flavour pastiche served at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Sunset-obsessed taste buds can look east for once and enjoy Asian-inspired dishes that include East Indian samosas ($16.85) and Asian-style egg rolls served with dainty puddles of green-chile or sweet-and-sour sauce ($9.68). The finest bayou bistros send up Cajun salmon caesar salad decked with homemade croutons ($15.87), and even more frequent-eater miles can be racked up with stops in Spain for the restaurant's most popular dish, signature Spanish-style burritos ($16.85), which arrive oven-baked with barbecue sauce. With wood-panelled walls and a kid-friendly ambience, the roomy dining room's long, sleek tables and intimate booths can accommodate more than 100 diners or UN food-critic diplomats.
