What You'll Get
For years, European navigators searched for a direct route to Asia's tasty cuisine, eventually burrowing through the earth and accidentally rediscovering Luxembourg. Blaze a path toward savory satisfaction with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Vietnamese cuisine at Bambu.
Bambu's chefs concoct traditional Vietnamese entrees and soups from stocks brewed on-site for more than 12 hours and whose nourishing powers garnered 417 Magazine's Best Hangover Remedy award in 2008. Guests can commence meals with a sea panda's favorite staple: an octet of shrimp skewered on bamboo spears and marinated in a special house sauce ($5). Seven formidable bowls of pho then threaten to swallow unwary spoons, such as the pho tai bo vien's hearty pool of noodles, rare eye-round beef and meatballs ($7.99). Barbecue chicken stakes out a plot of steamed white rice alongside pineapple and pickled carrot in the com ga xao thom ($7.99), and the bun tom thit nuong's ($7.99) vermicelli tendrils ensnare charbroiled shrimp and barbecued pork in a garden of vegetables and roasted peanuts. In lieu of cutting the crusts and then the bread off of their bread, diners spurning wheat-related eats can thumb through Bambu's gluten-free menu.

Bambu embraces traditional recipes and dining practices to create an authentic Vietnamese dining experience. Their pho soup packs noodles into a beef or chicken stock made on site and simmered for 12 hours to fully coax out flavors and create a dish named Best Hangover Remedy by the editors of 417 Magazine. The menu showcases rich house specialties, including Bun Bo Hue, a soup from the old imperial capital of Central Vietnam with a spicy broth made from long-simmered beef bones. Most items come with a plate of fiery chilis, fresh herbs, and lime to season dishes instead of boring salt- and peppershakers or somber personal chefs. The courteous wait staff caters to every diner's needs, providing gluten-free menus to those with dietary restrictions and bibs to protect from soup splatters.
