International restaurants often feature menus written in their native language, such as bistros using French terms and hamburger joints translated completely into German. Translate south-of-the-border flavors with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of authentic Mexican cuisine at Barrio in Brooklyn.
Barrio, the Spanish word for neighborhood, invites diners to enjoy an inventive and authentic dinner menu of delicious dishes that reflects the dynamic nature of its multifaceted community. Fortify taste buds for future waves of flavor with a shrimp quesadilla layered with roasted garlic and oaxaca cheese ($8.95) or miniature cauldron of queso fundido seasoned with poblano peppers and shitake mushrooms ($8.50). The crab enchilada cloaks stuffed cylinders of sweet potato and chihuahua queso with a smooth poblano-cream sauce ($16.95), and diners fight spice cravings with the adobo-marinated Barrio pollo ($15.95).
The brunch menu offers time-sensitive dishes, such as pressed-chorizo-and-egg tortas ($7.95) or traditional huevos rancheros ($8.95) that turn back into a pumpkin at sunset. Parents keep toddler tongues tied with an adolescent allocation of mini roasted-pork soft tacos ($5.95) and celebrate the end of a successful meal with a berry-barraged Barrio vanilla flan ($5.95) and borracho tres leches ($5.95).
Barrio's tequila selection shelves more than 30 different varieties to discover the unique flavors created by different distilleries. Taste the smoky agave essence of Avion ($9), the crisp vanilla Espolon ($10), or the fruity oak-infused Campo Azul ($10). Groupon users can dine in to experience the cozy lounge and copious cocktail selection or use today’s deal for delivery orders and enjoy a delicious Mexican dinner sent to their home, office, or back in time to when they skipped lunch.
