Tour Mexico from Sonora to the Yucatan with the tip of your tongue with today's Groupon: $10 buys you $25 worth of inspired Mexican cuisine from Cilantro Fusion. Owner Gabriela Bossy gathers family recipes from across generations and continents, blending Spanish and Mexican flavors into a menu bursting with authenticity, inspiration, and authentic, inspiration-inspired authentispiration.
Cilantro Fusion's menu features familiar favorites such as chiles relleno with rice and beans ($8.50 for lunch, $11.50 for dinner), poblano chicken mole with chiles, almonds, chocolates, and spices from Puebla ($9.50 for lunch, $12.50 for dinner), and carne asada with cheese mole and guacamole ($11.50 for lunch, $13.50 for dinner). Then notice the uncommon temptations such as enchilada casserole (sautéed corn tortillas layered with zucchini, onions, kernel corn, sour cream, and enchilada sauce, $8.50 for lunch, $11.50 for dinner), albondigas (meatballs cooked with chipotle garlic tomato sauce and served with Mexican rice, $8.50 for lunch, $11.50 for dinner), and the Yucatan chicken tamales wrapped in a banana leaf for $8.75.
Accompany your meal with a traditional mojito, margarita, or martini, or kiss your cocktail with sweet fruit, such as a strawberry margarita, coconut mojito, or guava martini. Finish with something sweeterest: a homemade Tia Ticha tres leches cake or Grandma Celia's flan for $3.50, accompanied by a rich Costa Rican coffee.
Cilantro Fusion is located at 1531 Stout St. and serves breakfast and lunch, Monday through Saturday, and dinner, Wednesday through Saturday. Grab this Groupon and feast on the collective flavors of Mexico without having to take the recently installed cross-border zip line that runs from Denver International to the bus depot in La Peñita.
The Denver Westword blog reviewed Cilantro Fusion:
- there's much more to Bossy's menu than Juan's leftovers, including tortas, Oaxacan huevos rancheros, pozole, chilaquiles with chicken, mole enchiladas, albondigas and shrimp cocktail. Oh...and the required alcoholic components, like fresh fruit margaritas, mojitos and martinis. And the two-tiered space, flanked with hardwoods and tile, rock, wrought iron and leather, arches and angles, is gorgeous. – Lori Midson, Denver Westword
Important Moments in Nuclear Fusion
Fusion food is based off the simple principles of a relatively modern concept: nuclear fusion. Here are some important moments in the history of nuclear fusion:
1905: Einstein's famous equation, E = mc2, hypothesizes a fusion-style reaction, while Einstein himself hypothesizes a romance between Meg Ryan and Tim Robbins.
1946: Designer bombs tested at Bikini Atoll create a variety of decorative cloud shapes, including beach ball, dolphin, and silhouette of the United States.
1978: Attempts to use nuclear fusion to prevent magician David Copperfield from appearing on TV are largely successful.
2010: Simultaneous, worldwide experiments with nuclear fusion result in the renewed popularity of player pianos and the transformation of friendly cats into gigantic-instrument-of-mayhem cats.
