To stand apart from bars, pubs uphold their exotic European origins and penchant for pleasing sophisticated palates by serving fare festooned with ketchup-scrawled Shakespearian sonnets. Treat poetic taste buds with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of pub fare at Corner Pub of Chinatown, located on Lincoln Street. This Groupon is not valid for alcohol.
Called an "easygoing joint" by the The Boston Phoenix, the family-owned Corner Pub of Chinatown lavishes savory seekers with its menu of fresh, made-from-scratch comfort fare. Sink smiles into Monterrey cheese-infused nachos grande ($5.75), or share a starter of chicken fingers doused in teriyaki, barbecue, or buffalo sauce ($5.95). The hand-packed pub burger boasts a half pound of beefy sustenance ($8), and two quarter-pound hot dogs come lovingly cradled in grilled buns ($5.50). Those craving marinated eats can park pincers in the chicken kabobs ($8) while simmering down in the recently refurbished lounge, allowing diners to forget about their day job working as secretary for Emperor Garth Vicious of the Eighth Dimension.
