Mexican cooking combines bold flavors, like a blockbuster movie combines explosions and one-liners and baseball combines walking and walking a little faster. Experience an explosion of flavor with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Café Ollin on 108th Street in East Harlem.

Café Ollin's eye-catching blue exterior compels pedestrians to enter the restaurant, which serves as a vibrantly colored oasis of Mexican culture and cuisine. The extensive menu reads like a bestselling romance novel in which the main characters are all Mexican dishes, such as the signature cemita ($8–$8.50), a Puebla-style sandwich piled with cheeses, avocado, beans, chipotle and carne enchilada, bistec, or lengua (cow tongue). Tacos ($2–$3.50 each) envelop proteins, such as cecina (salted beef) and chivo enchilado (spicy goat), and full plates display the likes of four enchiladas, which are stuffed with chicken, beef, or cheese ($11), or costillas (pork ribs) in a red sauce served with cactus ($9.50). Jarritos sodas ($2) or homemade juices ($2) silently wait in the wings, anxious to find a new home on top of a table blanketed by colorful, woven cloth.
