Spicy food is a great way to separate the men from the boys, the women from the girls, and the girls from the boys if they get too rowdy at coed canoe camp. See where you stand with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get an Indian dinner for two at Bombay Sizzler Pub & Grill in Irving (up to a $50.48 total value). The dinner includes:
- One appetizer (up to a $7 value)
- Two entrees (up to a $14.99 value each)
- Two orders of naan (a $1.75 value each)
- Two desserts (up to a $5 value each)
At Bombay Sizzler Pub & Grill, cooks pump out delicious smells that tickle patrons’ appetites and pile plates with savory Indian and pan-Asian dishes. The varied menu throws taste buds culinary curveballs in the form of entrees that integrate a menagerie of meats, from curried mutton in tomato-onion gravy to pomfret fish with ginger, garlic, and lime juice. Meat-free eaters might avail themselves of the dahl tadka, a serving of yellow lentils with onion, tomato, and cumin, or the okra masala fried with onion.
Many appetizers accommodate vegetarians and can be used to lure a hyena into a friend’s play recital, with selections such as the chicken lollipop featuring spicy drumsticks cooked in batter and served alongside sichuan sauce or the veggie Chinese bhel, a combo of chow mien, vegetables, and sauce. Slabs of naan bread counteract spiciness or soupiness, and desserts such as mango kulfi or rice kheer provide a mellower counterpoint to aromatic dinner dishes or an accidentally ingested table candle.
