At some point, every country builds a Great Wall to keep the secret of their cuisine from spreading to foreign nations, only to find that the real wall lies in their heart. Tear down the Great Wall of painful secrets with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of internationally inspired cuisine and drinks at Bistro Chi or Kama Lounge.
Bistro Chi presents an upscale take on Chinese cooking, engrossing diners with a page-turning menu of authentic recipes. Dabble in the selection of rice and noodle dishes, including vegetarian fried rice or Singapore street–style vermicelli ($9 each), which fends off quarrelsome forks with a well-placed dis. The beige-and-white modern dining room is offset with the sweet-and-sour spare ribs, splattered with a spectrum of peppers, onions, and pineapples ($12).
Kama Lounge invites guests into its elegant bar setting, aglow with the lights of chandeliers and the shine of flat-screen TVs, for a menu of small plates and savory sips. Diners can pluck eggplant petals before drenching them in the nectars of sweet purple mustard and kabayaki glaze ($6), or dig into hand-cut sweet-potato fries ($4.50), rubbed with barbecue spices and sliced by scissored fingers.
