People who cook at home risk burns from hot pans, clothing stains from spilled sauces, and flirtatious glances from an oven in heat. Avoid stove-top suitors with today's Groupon to Destan Restaurant in Richardson. Choose from the following options:
- For $5, you get $10 worth of lunch, which includes the lunch buffet, salad bar, or gyro and fries.

Destan plumbs Mediterranean cuisine's deep cuts to create an album of palate-pleasing kebab, kafta, and salad plates based on Old World recipes. Like forks in the road and Choose Your Own Adventure Lunchables, the midday menu offers multiple paths by which stomachs can reach satiation. Those turning to the 26th page of their hearts tackle a lunch buffet populated by piping-hot beef and chicken gyros, fresh salads, and homemade kafta—balls of ground beef mixed with spices ($8.95). Alternately, munch on a beef, chicken, or veggie gyro sandwich with tzatziki and homemade fries ($5.95), or opt for the bountiful salad bar ($5.95).
Destan's dinner dining duos can slurp up the soup of the day (a $2.95 value) before mining the menu's culinary riches for entrees such as the Iskender kebab platter, whose savory meats snooze under a blanket of sour cream and tomato sauce (a $10.95 value), or the pizza-like beef lahmacun, which reunites meaty toppings with their long-lost fresh-parsley and lemon-juice cousins (a $10.95 value). Trips to a well-stocked salad bar and a pair of sodas, teas, or sparkling waters round out the stomach-stuffing meal.
