Asian food has become so popular that some restaurants are inventing Asian countries to draw in new diners, as evidenced by restaurants offering "authentic Asian cuisine" from West Korea, the People’s Republic of People, and Luxembourg. Taste the real deal with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of modern Asian fusion cuisine at Fatty Fish Restaurant, located on the Upper East Side.
Fatty Fish blends traditional Eastern ingredients and flavors with modern Western cooking techniques and aesthetic flair, offering diners a new, adventurous take on Asian dishes. Diners browsing Fatty Fish's menu will find a plethora of flavorful appetizers, from steamed mussels bathing in a coconut lemongrass broth ($7) to boneless babyback ribs ($7). The Asian paella comes with shrimp, clams, mussels, chicken and Chinese sausage ($24), while the seared five-pepper tuna makes nice with an asparagus and Napa cabbage salad tossed in ginger soy dressing ($21). Sushi savorers can choose from more than a dozen rolls, from the tantalizing spicy yellowtail ($5.50) to the eel cucumber roll ($4.95), each hand-crafted by the restaurant's quadruply productive and well-hidden octo-chef. Finish with several voluptuous bites of Fatty Fish's signature homemade green-tea cheesecake ($6.50), an appetizing alternative to your usual post-meal ritual of guiltily crying about the innocent food you just maliciously ate.
Fatty Fish's attentive and friendly wait staff will cordially welcome salivating diners to its warm and elegantly designed dining room. With its Zen-like vibe and modern decor, Fatty Fish marks the ideal setting to unwind and get away from the jackhammer symphony quartet practicing in your basement.
