From the depths of the jungle come the most exotic things—life-saving botanicals, long-lost cities, and microwaveable dinners. Plow into a plate of faraway flavor with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Vietnamese cuisine at Basil Leaf Vietnamese Restaurant, an East Side eatery. This Groupon is valid for dine-in only.
Check out the multifarious menu at Basil Leaf and start off a meal with a hot cup of café sua da Vietnamese iced coffee ($2.75) and an appetizer of six bo la lot beef rolls ($4.95). After appeasing your appetite, grind it into delicious dust with the spicy lemongrass chicken ($7.95) with jasmine rice, or a mess of stir-fried noodles such as the mi xao mem ($7.50), available with chicken, pork, or shrimp. Beef up any order with a side of two pork sausages ($1.75) or one jumbo grilled shrimp ($2.50). For anti-beef orders, guests can opt for a vegetarian selection such as the com cari xanh dau hu ($7.25), with spicy green curry tofu served on a bountiful bed of jasmine rice. A children's menu is also available for kids age 12 and under, allowing them to take a break from their lengthy dissertations on the Balian-Low Theorem and enjoy Vietnamese fare such as beef noodle soup topped with meatballs ($3.95).
Basil Leaf also offers restaurant specials that can't be found on the menu, including sweet and sour catfish, pork sandwiches, and wonton soup, all available for consumption from the restaurant's simple dining space of white linens and golden lighting. Grab today's Groupon and take along a fellow food-eater for a night of mouth-based exploration at Basil Leaf Vietnamese Restaurant.
