Before settling on peanuts, Thai chefs unsuccessfully attempted to garnish their dishes with other nutty fare including miniature fruitcakes and eccentric professors. Celebrate their sensible decision-making skills with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Thai and Vietnamese fare at Jasmine Rice Thai and Vietnamese Cuisine.
Jasmine Rice Thai and Vietnamese Cuisine's interior immerses patrons in the citrusy aromas of authentic Thai and Vietnamese dishes served up by an amiable staff. Diners can treat tongues to crispy, deep-fried egg rolls stuffed with pork or a smattering of vegetables ($1.50) that dream, like a famished Olympic diver, of dips in sweet-and-sour sauce. Kaow laow soup ($2.99) ends needless turf tussles by peacefully comingling slices of beef, meatballs, and beef broth with bean sprouts, green onion, and cilantro. The panang curry, a creamy coconut-milk base topped with citrus leaves and peanuts ($7.99+), can be ornamented with a plethora of proteins including chicken, pork, tofu, squid, or scallops. Patrons can transport palates to Vietnam with the com suon nuong, a grilled pork chop accompanied by steaming rice ($8.50), or the pho, a flavor punch of beef broth and white-rice noodles ($7.99+) customized with unique condiments or 30-inch rims. Diners can scramble gray matter with even more choices Friday–Sunday, when Jasmine Rice Thai and Vietnamese Cuisine adds traditional Laotian treats, such as deep-fried ribs ($4.99), to the expansive menu.
