Though the Great Wall of China has won the accolades of history, the Great Backscratcher of Thailand, built to reach any itchy corner across the nation, saved more lives than can be counted on a single hand. Feast upon equally ingenious Asian creations with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of authentic Asian fare at Hu’s Asian Bistro. Your Groupon is redeemable at both the Ellice and Portage Avenue locations of the chic Asian eatery.
The friendly servers at Hu’s serve up an extensive menu of fresh Asian-inspired fare, prepared using authentic Asian cooking techniques and high-quality and seasonal ingredients. Start with an order of flash-fried calamari ($10) or the Bakudan tuna, a lightly seared sliced-fish dish sprinkled with crispy tempura flakes and Sriracha sauce ($10), before dipping into one of the authentic Thai curries ($10+) or entrees. Opt for the peanut-crusted pickerel swimming in a coconut broth ($18), or end a bitter dispute over the preeminent recording of Mahler’s Fourth Symphony with the arrival of the sweet, crispy honey chicken, wok-tossed with fresh veggies ($14). Noodle dishes, such as the barbecue pork Shanghai over egg noodles ($14), offer comforting doses of carbs to help athletes prepare for upcoming above-water basket-weaving tournaments, and vegetarian fare, such as the three-flames hot kung pao noodles ($12), offers hearty eats for herbivorous friends.
Hu’s elegant setting, with its sultry dark colour palette, rich wood accents, lush banquettes, and corner-dwelling poet-patrons, is an ideal place to enjoy sensual and flavourful Asian fare.
