Thai fare attempts to balance the five fundamental flavors: bitter, sour, sweet, salty, and victory. Score a win for your mouth with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Thai fare at Ginger Thai Cuisine.
Recently voted Best Thai Restaurant by the Houston Press, Ginger Thai Cuisine invites enterprising appetites on a culinary expedition through Thailand's fragrant, spiced culinary realms. Pair games of footsie with appetizers such as the steamed-rice dumplings, plumped up with pork and mushrooms ($5), then sojourn on to curry entrees such as the green curry ($12–$14), enlivening lagging tongues with a rich blend of coconut milk, eggplant, green beans, jalapeños, and a choice of chicken, beef, pork, tofu, or shrimp. Bellies that remain faithfully silent during games of library hide-and-seek can be rewarded with chef specialties such as the soft-shell crab in a spicy basil sauce ($18) or the stir-fried ginger duck, guarded by a fresh-vegetable phalanx ($15). Those pining for more orb-like fare can pick and choose a bounty of furled fish from Ginger Thai Cuisine's exhaustive sushi menu.
