What You'll Get
Every prince knows that the most effective way to wake up a sleeping beauty is not with a boring kiss, but with a single potent drop of fiery green chili. Awaken tired taste buds in royal fashion with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mexican fare at Curra's Nuevo Cuisine.
Curra's Nuevo Cuisine's kaleidoscopic, meticulous plating complements the warm, multihued eating area as diners sample inventive twists on Mexican culinary classics. The appetizers, including chilaca rellena, an anaheim pepper stuffed with goat cheese and onion-and-pomegranate relish ($9), queso flameado, a sea of cheese speckled with an archipelago of onion and chorizo ($7), and a daily selection of ceviche, touch down like flavorful flying saucers on the tongue, demanding attention and the surrender of world leaders. The pato almendrado, duck confit dressed unorthodoxly in a coat of almond and saffron ($21), may befuddle taco purists, and pineapple traditionalists will fume over the puerco al pastor, a cowboy-cut pork chop with guajillo sauce, onion, and pineapple ($22).
Chef Tyler Debruyne, runner-up in the second annual Western North Carolina Chefs Challenge, uses organic and locally sourced products whenever possible, and Curra's Nuevo Cuisine is a member of the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project. The majority of the meats served are free range or grass fed, and leftover cooking oil is used as biofuel and runoff queso is reclaimed through a unique system of tortilla filters.
