Eating food is like listening to music: when done right, both leave you feeling satisfied, energized, and inexplicably covered in sweat. Get the best of both uplifting experiences with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Thai and American fare at Bangkok Blues, in Falls Church.
Fusing authentic Thai vittles with distinctively American burgers and bass lines, Bangkok Blues proffers a fully eclectic entertainment experience. A custom-made bar resembling a Paul Reed Smith guitar sits alongside a stage, where live music gives the foreign fare a thorough groove-garnishing five nights a week, plus biweekly blues jams with local musicians.
Count off preliminary courses with a dish of kanom jeeb, six steaming dumplings filled with ground pork and crab wrapped in a soft wonton skin ($8.25). Pad gra-paw sautés fresh chilies, onions, and basil leaves with the tender meat morsels of your choice ($10.25–$16.95), while an array of curries sends taste buds into flurries of tongue-trimming aerobics routines ($10.25–$16.95). More Americanized appetites will find plenty of hamburgers ($6.95), cheeseburgers ($7.50), and chicken sandwiches ($7.50) populating the menu as well, while decadent desserts such as the honey- and sesame-topped fried banana ($4.95) will cap your face-melting feasting solo with the dulcet flavors of an accordion sonata.
