The best part about eating Chinese food is the confidence that comes when more than one billion people tacitly support your culinary decision; the second-best part is that their bakers can see the future. Enjoy all this culinary cornerstone has to offer with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of Chinese cuisine and drinks at Get Sum Dim Sum, an eclectic eatery in Austin offering traditional dim sum and stir-fry selections for brunch, lunch, and dinner.

Dim Sum, which loosely translates to "a touch of the heart," was created centuries ago as a savory snack. Today, the Chinese staple consists of a variety of small dishes (all MSG free at Get Sum Dim Sum) served steamed, fried, hot, or cold. Get a speedy start on the feast with an order of pickled veggies ($2.50) or hot and sour soup ($3.50) before moving forth to spinach dumplings ($2.50) or fried spring rolls ($2.50). With many dishes priced under $5, you can afford to experiment and order a variety of inventive eats. Combos (from $5.95) pair the nibble-sized nosh with heartier stir-fry options like beef in black been and garlic sauce or veggie-friendly braised tofu with grinning eggplant.

Instead of waiting until weekend brunch when dim sum is traditionally served, you can order it here all day, every day, except for on Sunderday, which a lot of businesses still won't recognize. Belly up to the counter and place your order. Get Sum Dim Sum is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., making it a smart stop for a creative lunch, delicious dinner, or eight-hour snack with a two-hour cartwheel break.

  • But while the Get Sum Dim Sum format is fast and certainly convenient, the quality of the food here far exceeds any fast food I've ever encountered. – Rachel Feit, Austin Chronicle
  • Tons of vegetarian options. Great prices. Delicious. I'll definitely visit again. – Ellipsoid, UrbanSpoon

Satay Restaurant

Satay chef/owner Dr. Rommanee "Foo" Swasdee partly attributes her skills to her experience as a food scientist, knowledge she's used to craft healthy, tasty meals that are free of MSG. The Thai native but longtime Texan has been serving these dishes for nearly 30 years at Satay.

The restaurant's namesake dish has eight skewers with a choice of meat, tofu, or veggies and Foo's spicy peanut sauce. The rest of the menu also focuses on traditional Thai recipes, such as duck curry, pad thai, and devil fish, a red snapper or catfish fillet ignited by Foo's thai jungle salsa. Those intrigued by Foo's handiwork can enroll in a cooking class or wish for her talents by dropping a penny in a nearby mall fountain.
