At some point, every country builds a Great Wall to keep the secret of its cuisine from spreading to foreign nations, only to find that the real wall lies in its heart. Tear down the Great Wall of painful secrets with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of organic pan-Asian cuisine at Fresh East in West Hollywood.
Fresh East's healthy take on Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Indian, and Thai cuisine satisfies health-conscious hunger pains and carbon-fearing feet alike. Though the menu is made to order, service is quick, filling idling grub engines with all the tandoori shrimp salad ($10.95), palak paneer ($8.95), or five-spice glazed salmon ($12.95) they need to keep from puttering out mid-mouthful. Those not in a hurry can take in a leisurely bowl of grilled miso chicken ($8.95) or natural-beef bulgogi ($9.95), both of which come paired with wok-cooked veggies, rice, and an optional side of baby greens (+$1) or fully mature quinoa (+$2).
Like weather patterns and an appreciation for Robert E. Lee-related limericks, all of Fresh East's produce is seasonal and gathered locally, including certified-natural beef from Harris Ranch, Jidori chicken, Scottish organic salmon, and purebred tofu. Apologize for past-life littering by dining on Fresh East's eco-friendly palm leaf plates or sucking back a thirst-quenching selection from the juice bar courtesy of biodegradable cups. The eco-centric restaurant also reclaims floors and chairs, as well as biodegradable utensils, unlike other restaurants that continue to polish their silverware with unrenewable unicorn tears.
