For years, European navigators searched for a direct route to Asia's tasty cuisine, eventually burrowing through the earth and accidentally rediscovering Luxembourg. Blaze a path toward savory satisfaction with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Asian fare and drinks plus an order of three crispy vegetable egg rolls (a $4.25 value) for dinner at Jasmine Asian Cuisine in Englewood (a $24.25 total value).
The chefs at Jasmine Asian Cuisine select fresh organic vegetables, choice meats, and antioxidant-rich oils to prepare dishes with pan-Asian heritage. All options on the dinner menu are additive- and preservative-free, including vegetable egg rolls whose golden, deep-fried wrappers are crispier than the pages of a fire-licked love letter. Specialties such as the sauteed spicy thai basil beef ($10.95) or pan-seared scallops with a mild vietnamese sauce ($11.95) float to marbled tabletops beside fluffy pillows of fried or steamed white rice. In the soba chicken noodle soup, Japanese buckwheat noodles and seasonal vegetables backstroke alongside tofu and woodear mushrooms in a chicken and pork broth ($7.95). Patrons can sip a passionfruit iced tea ($2) as they admire the dining area's collection of live plants, or finish a homemade pastry ($5) while tuning in to the soft babbling of a companion or the fountain on the wall.
