What You'll Get
Some claim plants don’t possess adequate muscle-building protein, but most change their mind after seeing a tree branch press a small automobile. Get primal fit with today’s Groupon to Commensal. Choose from the following options:
- For $17, you get a vegetarian buffet dinner for two (up to a $35 value).
- For $30, you get a vegetarian buffet dinner for four (up to a $70 value).
- For $40, you get a vegetarian buffet dinner for six (up to a $105 value).<p>
Each dinner includes the following: * Up to $15 worth of buffet fare per person * One non-alcoholic drink per person (a $2.50 value)<p>
The above deal values reflect average spends. Each visit to the buffet is charged by dish weight—$24.30 per kilogram from the hot or cold buffet, and $27.70 per kilogram from the dessert buffet—and Commensal’s staff maintains a tab for each table. The average customer purchases $17.50 or less per meal.
Favouring organic, all-natural ingredients, the chefs at Commensal fill a vegetarian buffet with dishes ranging from vegan to ovo-lacto vegetarian specialties. The hot buffet emanates an array of colours, aromas, and jingles about healthy living as bands of gourmands survey dishes including ratatouille and Portuguese-style bean stew festooned with fried tofu, plum tomatoes, and bay leaves. To temper palates kindled by steamy fare, the cold buffet yields creations such as avocado topped in sweet scallions and doused in caper vinaigrette. The dessert buffet then tempts diners by presenting maple-syrup-tinged chocolate-mousse cake beside vegan double-chocolate-chunk cookies that call to diners like Barry White speaking through a subwoofer.
Though Commensal sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
