Though the Great Wall of China may win the accolades of history, the Great Backscratcher of Thailand, built to reach any itchy corner across the vast, narrow expanse of the nation, saved more lives than can be counted on a single hand. Feast upon equally ingenious creations with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $20 worth of authentic Asian fare at Asian Grill in the Falls Village Shopping Center.
Asian Grill's chefs hunch over burners to create the authentic Chinese, Japanese, Clevelandese, and Thai cuisine listed on the extensive menu. Start with an order of fried cheese-and-crab wontons ($4.95) or slurp up a bowl of 1 of more than 10 soups ($1.95–$10.95) before moving on to the main course. For optimal meal-sack filling, dig into original homemade noodle dishes, such as the smoked-fish noodle soup ($8.95) and stir-fried thick noodles with veggies and pork ($8.95). The house specialties, such as crispy scallops with black-pepper sauce ($16.95), require a government-issued chef license to make, and the Happy Family dish mixes shrimp, chicken, and beef ($13.95).
