In the past, those who wanted to sample international cuisine had to fill out lengthy applications and undergo training in table etiquette from diplomats armed with Goofus and Gallant comic strips. Let your belly go abroad without crossing borders with today's Groupon to Crown Princess Fine Dining. Choose between the following options:
• For $25, you get $50 for dinner and drinks between 5:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
• For $10, you get $20 for lunch and drinks from restaurant opening to 5:00 p.m.
Crown Princess lavishes diners with a sumptuous Cantonese menu of savoury meat and seafood delicacies made from premium, rare ingredients. Epicureans can enlist the dim sum artisans to top their ornate rotating table centres with a lighted Christmas-tree angel or a spread of underwater delights, including the sautéed crispy prawn with sweet-and-sour sauce ($26) and the sautéed jumbo scallops with palm seed and con poy ($28). The culinary museum also tickles the taste buds of chopstick wielders with an artful arrangement of braised cabbage and chinese prosciutto ham ($20) and summons the exotic nectar of tropical pineapple to sweeten morsels of stir-fried duck ($18). As the ethereal light of crystal chandeliers dances off the Crown Princess's marble murals, illuminated guests can relish a dish of singapore fried vermicelli ($16) or carve busts of their favourite Nobel laureates from the limestone decor. For lunch, diners choose from small ($3.10) to jumbo ($11) sized plates of various freshly prepared dim sum options from a menu that, like a seasonal carousel, rotates regularly.
