The Great Wall of China was constructed to keep roving packs of ancient pandas from absconding with the local cuisine. Succeed where the bears failed with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Chinese cuisine and drinks at Grand House China Bistro on Classen Boulevard. Today's deal is valid for dinner only (5 p.m. to close).
Grand House China Bistro's Chinese chefs utilize the original Cantonese style of high-heat wok cooking to lock in flavor and entrance taste buds. The varied menu lets diners pay tribute to poultry military heroes thanks to the General Tso's chicken ($8.95) or cast out nets for the sizzling pacific lobster tail, its marine bounty stir-fried with pine nuts and ginger sauce ($25.95). Meanwhile, sushi platters such as the chirachi dinner huddle 12 pieces of sashimi together for a politically correct bedtime story atop a pillowy bed of rice ($16).
Pair any of the stomach-stocking meals with a beverage from the newly designed bar, with flavorful libations such as the wasabi Bloody Mary, a mouth-pleasing mélange of Absolut Peppar, tomato juice, and asian spices. Sippers can also wet their whistles by slurping one of the many wines and beers or by tossing the whistle into a nearby fountain.
