Restaurants offer diners both a delicious reprieve from the kitchen and a secure environment that makes it virtually impossible for the dish to run away with the spoon. Keep your eating implements obedient with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Hawaiian-style island fare and drinks at Hawaiian Time Cafe in Vancouver, Washington.
Hawaiian Time Cafe stakes stomach suspirations with a menu of Hawaiian-inspired plate lunches, saimin, and sandwiches. Customers can halt hunger with the cafe's signature dish, the mauna loa chicken, which comes smothered in sweet and spicy lava sauce and sided with a scoop of local-style macaroni salad ($7.95). For the full experience of eating a volcano, skip the mild, medium, and hot settings and order it "super hawaiian." Those ordering for their inner brontosaurus can select the garden mix, a grilled amalgamation of broccoli, carrots, onions, bell pepper, and mushrooms, and teriyaki sauce served over a bed of rice ($6.95). Because its extensive menu and limited seating puts space at a premium, Hawaiian Time Cafe can also set you up with takeout to accompany a romantic at-home staring contest.
