The ability to differentiate between red and green curry is the mark of a good Thai chef and a common tell among children faking colorblindness to skip school. Test your rods and cones with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of authentic Thai cuisine at Glow Thai in Brooklyn.
Glow Thai's chefs sear fiery flavor into an assortment of vegetarian and meat-laden entrees found on their menu of Thai classics, gingerly delivering plates amid a dining room that boasts "a bit of a lounge-like ambiance" according to Home Reporter News. Servings of the mussaman curry enswathe taste buds in the soothing flavors of potato, peanut, and coconut milk alongside succulent morsels of tofu, beef, or duck ($12+ for dinner; $7+ for lunch). Chefs glaze the pla rad prik's crispy sole or tilapia in a sweet chili sauce ($17) that's spicier than a burlesque show with an all-jalapeño cast, and they pair the gai yang som tom's grilled half chicken with a kaleidoscopic confetti of papaya salad ($17). Sweet and savory flavors duel in the pineapple fried rice, which corrals egg, scallions, and brown sauce with a choice of protein or vegetable ($9+ for dinner; $7+ lunch), after diners prime palates with chicken or pork satay ($6) drizzled in George Washington Carver's scientifically perfected peanut sauce.
