Pad thai is so named because of its inherent softness, which is also why it's used to stuff the mattresses of the world's richest kings. Fall into a pillow of flavor with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Thai cuisine and drinks at Bangkok Cuisine Express.
Bangkok Cuisine Express ousts hunger pangs with an extravagant menu of sweet, sour, and spicy delicacies crafted using homemade sauces and fresh produce. Enkindle tired taste sensors with tender bites of yellow curry chicken ($9.95), simmered in coconut milk, spices, and hearty carrots and potatoes. Or, reap the benefits of a one-night stand between a lonely herb and an adventurous lasagna by sampling the spicy basil noodle ($8.95–$10.95), a toothsome medley of chili sauce, wide rice noodles, and basil leaves, peppered with fresh peppers, egg, and onion. Salads ($6.95–$8.95) combine tropical tastes such as papaya, coconut, lime juice, and peanuts to create refreshing diversions from traditional tossed greens, while coconut soup ($4.95–$7.95) warms the spirit and the stomach by stewing straw mushrooms with Southern Thai herbs and spices, and coconut milk donated by cows that drink nothing but pina coladas.

Gluten-free dishes, along with vegan platters and vegetarian entrees, are available to suit diverse dietary needs, while a bevy of cooling beverages and desserts prevent overheated taste buds from melting into taste blobs.
