Sharing small plates is a great way to bond with friends, significant others, and hungry baby birds. Delight in a smattering of sharable dishes with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Asian-inspired small plates, entrées, and drinks at Fat Buddha.
Fat Buddha lures revelers in with regular drink specials and anchors them in place by filling their stomachs with dishes from a mouthwatering, Asian-inspired menu. Amid an intimate bar setting, friends gather around tables to savor a sampling of small plates, including bacon-wrapped shrimp with sweet and sour sauce ($8), flank-steak skewers ($8), and bulgogi korean barbecue with gochujang sauce ($12). Large dishes of pan-seared duck ($12) delight dinner-minded epicureans, and an entrée of black cod with a sweet miso glaze ($12) swirls taste buds in a sharkless sea of flavor. Side dishes, such as pork and shrimp shumai dumplings ($6), spicy kimchi ($3), and chili-pepper fries ($4) join forces to create meals with variety, much like eating directly from a piñata.
Daily happy hours please palates everyday from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m., with half-priced drinks and food specials including edamame ($2), pork buns ($6), and korean friend chicken ($5). After 10 p.m., Fat Buddha's bartenders sling sake, beer, and miniature swords into the wee hours of the morning, staying open to serve food and drink until 4:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. Guests can saunter in as they please or consult the online concierge to make a reservation.
