Pad thai is so named because of its inherent softness, which is also why it's used to stuff the mattresses of the world's richest kings. Fall into a pillow of flavor with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Thai cuisine at Duck Walk, with locations in Lakeview and Lincoln Park.
Duck Walk pillages the pantry and the produce department to create a fresh and flavorful menu of Thai and Vietnamese eats. Forage through the first-season flavors of spring rolls served with plum sauce and stuffed with cucumber, bean sprouts, and tofu ($4.25 for two), or sample a sextet of baby egg rolls filled with shrimp, chicken, and glass noodles ($4.25). Duck Walk's signature pasta autographs ceramics with penne, ground chicken, white onion, bell pepper, jalapeño, and basil leaves ($7.25), and curry and rice dishes roar with robustness. The beef bamboo treks across the tongue in chili trappings, trailed by white and green onion in tow ($7.50). Among beverages, the tropical thai fruit in syrup ($2.25) ices the sting of curries with more efficiency than a litchi fire extinguisher.
