Asian food has become so popular that some restaurants are inventing 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 at Fatty Fish Restaurant, located on the Upper East Side. Choose from two options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of dinner fare
- For $10, you get $20 worth of lunch or brunch fare
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 scallop ceviche ($9.50) lazing in its own bivalve resplendence. The Asian paella comes with shrimp, littleneck clams, mussels, chicken, edamame, and Chinese sausage ($22), while the seared five-pepper tuna rests on a tempurpedic bed of chilled green tea noodle salad ($18). 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.
From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., lunchers can dig into an array of lighter entrees accompanied by a house salad or miso soup. Exploit the raw emotions of tuna tartare by holding its mango salsa and nori crisps hostage in your mouth ($15), or snap up a fun-sized bulgogi filet mignon slider with kimchi and baby spinach ($11). Wow herbivores with the wonders of wheat protein, fashioned by a flora cobbler into vegetarian pepper steak and eggplant wrap ($9.50) and citrus shredded spare ribs with udon noodle stir-fry ($9.50).
Brunch ($14.95), served Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., offers a multitude of choices for food’s various forms, including a low viscosity option of coffee or tea, and a cocktail or soft drink, alongside an assortment of palm-sized dim sum. Main courses include poached eggs with filet mignon hash, toasted coconut French toast, shitake mushroom and scallion frittata, and East Meets West, a hemisphere-spanning combo of three eggs any style, sesame home fries, and bacon or sausage, served by a shih-tzu from Delaware.
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.
