The Indian subcontinent is a giant piece of naan that drifted slowly through the ocean before slamming its flavors into Eurasia. Align your face's tectonic plates to give the continent a nibble in return with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of homestyle Indian cuisine at Chutney Joe's South State Street location.
Featured in Fortune magazine, Chutney Joe's was founded by owner, chef, and self-taught culinarian Vijay Puniani. The restaurant uses herbs, spices, and flavorful chutneys to deliver high-quality, authentic Indian fare to on-the-go eaters looking for a quick bite between halves of championship basketball games. The thorough, no-frills menu lets you deliberate between combinations such as the one-entree meal ($5.99) or the two-entree meal ($7.99), both served with rice and naan or salad. Family-style entrees such as the chicken tikka masala ($4.99/regular, $7.99/large) and the pork vindaloo ($5.99/regular, $8.99/large) delight carnivores, and green-tongued vegetarians have plenty of main-course options, such as the gobi potatoes and the red-bean rajama (both $4.99/regular, $7.99/large). Chicken or vegetarian biryani is also available, offering rice-based sustenance to fill bellies and create colorful grain collages (both $3.99/regular, $6.99/large).
