Though the Great Wall of China has won the accolades of history, the Great Backscratcher of Malaysia, built to reach any itchy corner across the nation, saved more lives than can be counted on a single hand. Feast upon equally ingenious Malaysian creations with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Southeast Asian cuisine at Island Hopper on Massachusetts Avenue.
Archipelago adventurers at Island Hopper plate up a varied menu lavished with an extensive selection of Malaysian, Thai, and Chinese noshes. Attentive servers advance Asian-fare forays with scrumptious starters such as the roti island hopper, a platter of puffy pancakes covered with curry chicken or meatless curry dipping sauce ($4.95). Partner an entrée, such as the peking duck (half for $19.95), with a seaweed-wealthy bowl of miso soup ($3.50) to form a great play-set for practicing heroic lifeguard skills. The nenas shrimp satisfies spice-seeking seafarers with pineapple, scallion, lemongrass, and mint accents ($16.95), and those seeking to overrule carnivorous inclinations can mash molars on a livestock-friendly serving of tangy malaysian curry tofu and vegetables ($12.95).
Slosh down a sea of savories in Island Hopper's dramatically bedecked dining room with a selection of smoothies, such as the Oreo-laden Kookie Monster ($4.25), named after the great cream-filled cookie that ravaged the infrastructure of thirteenth-century Thailand.
