Some things get hotter when surrounded by clay, like meat in a tandoori oven or Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze in Ghost. Enjoy otherworldly flavors with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get two entrées (up to a $9.19 value each) and two non-alcoholic beverages (up to a $3.45 value each) at Hot Clay Oven (up to a $27.96 total value including tax).
Hot Clay Oven’s traditional tandoors superheat the restaurant’s build-your-own-entrée menu with flavors drawn from Indian, Latin, and Caribbean cuisine. Diners select the base of their meal from four options, including a naan wrap, rice bowl or salad bowl, before piling on oven-kissed proteins such as braised pork vindaloo or the tender chickpeas of the channa masala. Custom toppings including sautéed peppers, roasted nuts, and sweet red onions enhance dishes with savory complexity, just as three-dimensional geometry enhances two-dimensional geometry by turning triangles into tortilla chips. Bedeck meals with saucy accessories of mint and coriander chutney or lip-puckering lime vinaigrette. Fresh mango and smooth yogurt combine to make the mango lassi, or opt for the refreshing rosewater rooh afza, an excellent summer cooler or emergency first-date gift.
Hot Clay Oven
Inside the open-concept kitchen at Hot Clay Oven, the tandoor oven cooks up a fusion of Indian, Caribbean, and American cuisine, including decadently spiced proteins such as tandoori chicken and paneer cheese. These proteins are just two of the options guests can choose for their custom creations, which start off with a rice bowl, salad bowl, wrap, or naan wrap, and build from there. They can add in Indian, Caribbean, and American toppings, such as banana peppers, Caribbean salsa, or complex tamarind as well as spicy red chutney. Patrons can also choose à la carte entrees—including chicken tikka masala and yellow daal—and pair them with wine and beer.
