Unlike pads of water lilies, bowls of pad thai easily support a human's body weight and addiction to irregularly sized corn. Paint your palate in authentic Thai flavors with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Thai dinner fare at Erawan Thai Cuisine Chinatown.
The newest addition to the Zagat-lauded Erawan family, Erawan Thai Cuisine Chinatown supercharges its menu of classic Thai recipes by allowing guests to tote their own bottle of brew, with no corking fee. The restaurant's stir-fried shrimp ($13.95) or freshly cubed tofu ($11.95) adds a savory twist to pad thai’s peanut-topped noodles. The life of many a dinner party, Drunken Noodle ($11.95–$15.95) limbos under chopsticks with a conga line of bell peppers, basil leaves, and onions. Make taste buds curtsy with the bamboo-clad queen of the curry empire—Green Curry ($11.95–$15.95)—or the Holy Basil Supreme, a regal blend of chili spice and garlic sauce paired with a choice of chicken, beef, or pork ($11.95).
Filled with fresh orchids, glowing candles, and crisp white tablecloths, the restaurant makes an elegant choice for a dinner date. In addition to booking tables by phone, Erawan accepts reservations online and via singing telegram.
Erawan Thai Cuisine
Erawan Thai Cuisine's dishes nourish bellies and eyes with a visually stunning blend of fresh veggies, vibrant sauces, and tender meats. Morsels of chicken pork, fish, and shrimp mingle with piquant chili and ginger, and 11 meatless entrees appease vegetarian palates with seasoned tofu and veggie blends. Thanks to the restaurant's liberal BYOB policy, guests can pair zesty papaya salads or mango-sauced duck meat with their favorite beverage, free from the oppressive limitations of corkage fees or taxes levied by King George. Customers can also work hand-in-hand with chefs to fashion catering packages for any occasion.
