Curry is to Indians as ketchup is to Americans: both are spread over cultural dishes at restaurants, during family get-togethers, and between long innings of cricket. Win over your taste buds with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of South-Indian and Indo-Chinese cuisine at Dakshin Indian Cuisine in Schaumburg and Naperville.
Dakshin Indian Cuisine's creative chefs blend southern-Indian spices with Chinese flavors, crafting a menu of artful eats with elegant tastes. Dakshin means "south" in Sanskrit, and the southern starters shine, with the traditional Rasam soup ($2.99,) chock-full of tamarind, lentil, and piquant spices, great for warming up stomachs and filling pockets with a snack for later. Thin, lentil crêpes, or dosas, hail from the south and come smothered with cooked minced meat in the keema dosa ($9.99) or potato and onion in the masala dosa ($6.99). Chinese influences seep through the sauce of the szechwan chicken hakka noodles ($9.99), covered in julienned vegetables and sprinkled with secret messages in Mandarin.
High ceilings and decorative, red-clothed tables await diners at Dakshin's Naperville and Schaumburg locations. When combined, the locations boast more than eight years of serving the Chicago suburbs and form one giant samosa.
