A well-rounded diet embraces eats from all the food pyramid's categories, including vegetables, soft rocks, water, and vitamin water. Assemble a complete meal with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of spices, meats, and other groceries at Hana Asian Market.
Hana Asian Market stocks its many shelves with homegrown vegetables, sushi- and sashimi-grade fish, and spices and ingredients for various Asian culinary styles. Green, red, and yellow curry pastes help chefs taste a stoplight of flavors ($1.79), and wasabi peas thrill taste buds in wee fistfuls ($4.99 for 10 oz.). Meanwhile, green teas come rich with antioxidants, and oolong teas come rich with extra vowels ($2.69 for 16 bags). Patrons can squeeze tiny pearls of protein from edamame bean pods ($1.99/lb.), and string them into a necklace for sashimi tuna ($15.99/lb.). Noodles and other staple foodstuffs from the Far East dot the abundant shelves, as do gluten-free options, homegrown Asian vegetables, and a range of sakes, wines, and beers.
While not included with this Groupon, Hana Asian Market also hosts cooking classes on Sundays ($40, all ingredients included). On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, beginning in mid-September, visitors can avoid learning how to build an oven thanks to the market's spread of homemade takeout dishes, most of which are vegetarian ($1.99–$3.99, or $4.99 for a combination pack).
