Overwhelmed by Chinese fare's beauty and deliciousness, Marco Polo had himself blindfolded and navigated the East by shouting his name out loud. Discover seductive savories with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of authentic Chinese cuisine and sushi at House of Lee on Ohio River Boulevard. This deal is valid for dine-in, carry-out, or delivery (delivery fee not included).
House of Lee's menu has tempted taste buds for more than 30 years, populated by homestyle edibles spanning Chinese stir-fry and fresh sushi. The Four Seasons ($12.95), one of the chef's specialties, submerges peking duck, beef, roast pork, and chicken in a savory brown sauce and is served on a bed of steamed or fried rice with a rapidly flipping day calendar. Sichuan scallops ($13.95) romp with sweet red peppers and bamboo shoots in a spicy sauce, and the golden-fried lemony chicken ($10) awaits diners behind a veil of citrus and honey. The sushi menu features familiar fishy nibbles—such as the california roll ($5.95) and eel roll ($6.95)—alongside more creative concoctions, including the crispy-bacon roll with avocado and carrots ($5.95) and the lounge-singing Love Boat combo ($15.95), designed to feed duos or an individual with an expandable life vest. Most dinner options are available in lunch sizes at reduced prices until 3 p.m. daily.
