Simple laziness has spurred many culinary inventions, including the sandwich, the blender, and the pizza, which was invented as a way to wheel heavy ingredients from place to place. Transport your palate with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pizza, sandwiches, and Italian cuisine at Dominic's at the Harbor in Oceanside.
The resident chefs at Dominic's at the Harbor harness Old-World culinary traditions and homemade ingredients to fashion the platters of authentic Italian cuisine that make up the menu. Antipasti dishes awaken appetites with tasty bites such as the funghi ripieni ($12.95), which packs breadcrumbs, pine nuts, and currants into mushroom-cap packages to be dropped off on tongues' doorsteps. Sandwich sages unite homemade italian sausage with green peppers and giardiniera in the salsiccia panini ($9.95), or awaken skinless chicken breast with toppings of pesto and mozzarella in a pollo grigliato panini ($9.95). Create-your-own-pizza menus allow diners to exercise their right to elect 15 ingredients such as black olives, bell peppers, and pepperoni to serve in a parliament of spicy and savory flavors atop each pie. Pasta dishes, such as penne al forno ($15.45) and spaghetti con salsiccia ($15.45), team up with sidekicks of freshly baked breadsticks to oust stubborn hunger pangs from their stomach-bound fortifications.
