The first European explorers set sail with hopes of finding new, exotic spices to placate the palates of epicurious monarchs, but all they found were heaps of inedible gold. Pick up where they left off by broadening your mouth's horizons with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Asian fare and drinks at Asiatique Bistro and Lounge in West Chester.
Helmed by the highly decorated Chef Peng S. Looi, Asiatique Bistro and Lounge synthesizes a flavorful menu characterized by Asian inspirations and diverse cooking styles in a sleek, contemporary setting. Oceanic appetites can embark on an edible vacation with the triple-crusted ahi-tuna salad ($7) snuggled beneath a ginger-soy-vinaigrette blanket or a crabmeat-and-goat-cheese spring roll ($6.50) paired with a miso aioli. Inspired by a recipe found carved into a stone in sunken Atlantis, the wok-seared salmon tempts taste buds from a sea of spicy tomato concasse ($18.50), and slow-roasted short ribs sit alongside baby carrots in a traditional Indochine preparation ($18.50). Spice-craving appetences can pair a tannin-enriched glass from the bistro’s extensive wine list with the chinois salt and pink peppercorn shrimp ($15.50) and a vegetarian-tested order of stir-fried Sichuan-style in hot chili oil ($8.50). The lunch menu showcases meals calibrated to sit exactly halfway between breakfast and dinner, such as spicy, woked shrimp and scallops ($9) or chicken simmered in a fragrant black-bean sauce ($8).
