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 Thai creations with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Thai and Vietnamese fare and drinks at Indochine Cuisine, located in Parker. Indochine Cuisine is open Mondays through Saturdays. This Groupon is valid for dine-in only.
Each dish of homespun fare populating Indochine Cuisine's menu is carefully woven with fresh sauces and zesty seasonings, resulting in a harmonious blend of healthy tastes from Thailand and Vietnam. The restaurant's versatile starters can double as full meals or Burton Gilliam stand-ins—coconut-curry-sauce-marinated shrimp stuffs each deep-fried pastry pillow of the Fire Crackers ($5), and the grilled satay chicken rests comfortably in yellow curry sauce served with peanut sauce and 400-thread count cucumber vinaigrette ($6). Coat your throat with warm signature soups such as the coconut milk-infused Tom Kha ($6–$11) before loading up on one of Indochine Cuisine's tasty entrees. Fueled by basil curry puree, the rice-crusted Chilean sea bass rides on grilled zucchini ($20) rims before racing the fiery Bo Luc Lac's tender whip of wok-tossed steak ($14) through digestive highways.
Feel free to request a customized spicying-up of any dish to medium (half teaspoon of chili peppers) or Thai-hot (three chili peppers plus five fresh-chopped Thai chili peppers), or tap the friendly, attentive servers for their Rolodex of gluten-free options and celebrity birthdates. A spacious patio awaits al fresco diners, where you're free to nosh on flavorful desserts such as the fried banana ($3.50) or green-tea ice cream ($3).
