Though the Great Wall of China has won the accolades of history, the Great Backscratcher of Thailand, built to reach any itchy corner across the nation, saved more lives than can be counted on a single hand. Feast upon equally ingenious Japanese creations with today's cross-cultural Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of pan-Asian fare and drinks at Good Fortune Asian Cuisine in Mentor.
Styling a pan-Asian menu steeped in the aromatic acrobatics of Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, and Japanese flavors, Good Fortune melds traditional favorites with contemporary specialties. Diners can mine the depths of the expansive selection to choose from more than 100 different dishes. Launch maiden culinary voyages with a half-dozen classic crab rangoon ($4) or a small hot-and-sour soup designed to pucker palates with its brothy bowl ($2). Moo goo gai pan ($7.50) may prompt belly cooing, and other classic Chinese options, such as sesame beef ($8.50) or kung pao pork ($8.50), add a flavorful five-spiced kick. Loop lovers may opt for Cantonese pan-fried noodles ($7.95–$8.95) or Thai basil stir-fry ($8.95–$9.95). Delve deeper into Good Fortune's Japanese offerings with stir-fried udon noodles ($8.50) or the meatless Buddha Delights, an array of veggies and tofu in a flavorful secret sauce ($7.50). A serving of four fortune cookies ($0.75), which may come stuffed with everything from lucky numbers to self-help mantras to Pac-Man cheat codes, caps off meals with a crunch.
