For hundreds of generations, Indonesian chefs have passed down the secret to capturing and containing the flying coconut by luring it into kitchens with molasses and candies. Taste the fruits of this elusive skill with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Indonesian cuisine and drinks at Bandung Indonesian Restaurant, located half a mile east of Capitol Square.

Named for the famous city on the island of Java, Bandung is the only Indonesian restaurant in Madison—and one of only a handful in the Midwest. Specializing in traditional Indonesian recipes as well as fusion dishes, Bandung offers vegetarian- and carnivore-friendly menu items to perk up mouth bungalows with flavorful furnishings. Start off with appetizers such as the krupuk bawang putih (garlic chips made with tapioca flour, $1.25) and pangsit goreng, which combines green onions and water chestnuts in a crispy wonton wrap with your choice of tofu ($4.25) or chicken and shrimp ($5.25). Main dishes include opor ayam, which bathes taste buds in a silky coconut broth containing bamboo shoots, lemongrass, and marinated chicken ($7.95 for lunch, $10.95 for dinner), and nasi goreng super, a super-powered fried rice that mixes garlic, candle nut, and shallots with sambal (a chili-based paste), veggies, and the meat of your choice ($7.95 for lunch, $10.95 for dinner). Nearly all dishes can be changed to accommodate allergy needs or vegan requests. During or after dinner, crack open your miniature party umbrellas to celebrate Bandung's new touch-screen cocktail menu and try the Long Island Thai tea ($6), which packs the same punch as a Long Island but is wrapped in creamy Thai tea for a bruise-free wallop.

In 2009, Taste of Madison awarded Bandung Best Ethnic Appetizer and Best Asian Food. Amble over to Bandung for lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekdays, or pacify your nightly cravings from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday or until 10 p.m. on weekends.
